Neil Sandilands announces 40 Days & 40 Nights Tour nationwide tour in May

Emmy-nominated actor and SAMA-nominated musician, Neil Sandilands, has just confirmed that he and his band (Schalk Joubert, Frank Freeman and Ronan Skillen) will once again embark on a nationwide tour this winter!

“Last year’s epic adventure during July, when we toured from the Cape to Limpopo, performing to audiences that were often in the outskirts of the country, was one of the most enriching experiences of my career,” says Sandilands, veteran actor known for international television series like Sweet ToothThe FlashThe 100, as well as local series Die Groot NiksDesert Rose and 7de Laan, to name but a few. “Yup, 35 years of doing it and counting,” he laughs.

This time, the ensemble will take on an even more gruelling schedule, touring for literally 40 days & 40 nights. “It might be a record of a different kind, I think. I love this country and its people and am very optimistic about experiences encountered whilst on the road. We get things done ourselves, and it’s a privilege to be able to create work in this ‘soetste taal’.”

The musical offerings will come from Sandilands’ well-known albums Sangoma Sandilands & Jou Pa se PosseAllegaarkie vir ’n AskeetDie Groot 5Die Groot Niks, as well as new works, never previously recorded. “It’ll be the first time that I’ll be singing brand-new songs “live”, before the release of an album. It’s very exciting!” Check out the full tour schedule below.
