Hog Hoggidy Hog and special rock friends are set to commemorate the late George Bacon next month in Cape Town. They’ve already announced Pete Grey from Half Price as their first guest vocalist. Today, they revealed their second special friend to accompany them at at the Hog’s Birthday Bash. None other than…
First, a little backstory. On the 15th of August, exactly twenty years ago to the day, Hog Hoggidy Hog played its first gig at the Purple Turtle in Cape Town. Now, on the 15th of August 2015, come and celebrate the 20th birthday of Hog Hoggidy Hog, who’ll be partying with some special friends they have met along the way. Featuring 7th Son, Half Price, The Rudimentals and Hog Hoggidy Hog, this event invites you to blow out some candles and celebrate the 20-year legacy of #PorkRock.
On Friday, Hog Hoggidy Hog announced Pete Grey from Half Price as their first guest vocalist to join them on stage at their celebratory performance. This week, the bacon boys reveal that their second guest vocalist is none other than Afrikaans rock legend, Francois Van Coke. Francois is best known as frontman of the iconic rock outfit Fokofpolisiekar, who have also been influenced by George and 20 years of pure #PorkRock.
Both Francois and Pete will be ripping up the stage with the Hogs and a whole bunch of other surprise guest rockers who’s own music has been influenced the past two decades by the infamous #PorkRock and the legacy that began 20 years ago in South Africa. Keep an eye out as the Hogs introduce the rest of their special rock friends in the weeks to come!
Ticket sales went live last week on Webtickets. Get in early to join Hog Hoggidy Hog and their closest friends in a celebration of 20 years of #PorkRock. All the participating musicians will be donating their time and skill towards raising money in a preview of what is to come. More information to be released over the coming months, but for now, come and celebrate 20 years of #PorkRock.
