South African musician Jesse Clegg announced that he will be launching his new Speed of Light tour in December, in support of his latest single of the same name.
The tour will see him playing concerts in the Eastern and Western Cape.
Clegg’s latest single, “Speed of Light”, is an upbeat pop-inspired track about life’s many surprises.
“This song is about dealing with disappointment and regret and then rediscovering your passion and sense of connection,” he said.
“This tour symbolises exactly that — a culmination of what this year has represented and taking a positive approach moving into the new year.”
Within a week of its release, the song was charting on radio stations countrywide.
Clegg wrote and produced the song with Nick Furlong (Avicci, 5 Seconds of Summer, Kygo, Steve Aoki) and “Walk the Moon” lead singer Nick Petricca.
It was mixed by Grammy-winning producer Tim Pagnotta.
The tour kicks off in December and will run through until January. Concerts will take place in the following venues:
