Big Concerts announced earlier today that James Blunt will be retuning to South Africa for three shows in February 2015. The stop-over is part of a worldwide tour to promote his latest album Moon Landing and will see him visiting Cape Town and Johannesburg.
In typical fashion, people took to Twitter to air their opinion – as they do after any Big Concerts announcement. News 24 captured 10 of the earliest reactions HERE. But, Twitter is the one place James Blunt reigns supreme. So if you are one of those that did not take well to news and can’t understand why people love him so much, know that it is not necessarily about the music! Grab your popcorn and get cosy – we can only hope that James Blunt hops onto Twitter to respond as he is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining musicians. His timeline is a string of witty comebacks that will leave you laughing for days. Even I regularly scroll his time line looking for a laugh, here are some of my favourites:
Easy spelling mistake as K and L are right beside each other. RT @lizziea1: I want to kick James Blunt… repeatedly… I dont know why
