This Friday 9th November , in association with East Coast Radio , Durban Botanic Gardens found itself packed to the max with fans attending the first show of Calum Scotts “Only human” tour. With 3 shows being staged on our shores, that being Durban Botanic Gardens , Cape town International Convention centre & Johannesburg’s Marks Park Sports club, we were fortunate enough to have had our own Gordon Date of Whitelens Music Photography on location to capture this phenomenal artist in spectacular performance. Here’s what Gordon has to say about the evening.
“My Journey of Chasing Light through photography has taken my all over, I have seen the most beautiful places and met the most interesting and loving people and experienced the most incredible things and unexpectedly – yesterday served up one of those. Last night I had the good fortune to collaborate with SA Music News and cover the Calum Scott Concert in Botanical Gardens in Durban. What an honour, privilege and absolute pleasure that was – A crowd of 4500 people gathered in the surrounds of the picturesque gardens and whilst ‘Opposite the Other’ kept all entertained whilst awaiting Calum. Calum Scott, the winner of last year’s Britain’s Got Talent then came on stage and had everyone on their feet with his incredible stage presence – his passion and pleasure at performing before a live audience was palpable. He wore his heart on his sleeve. As he sang, you could see and feel how deeply his emotions were running. He had everyone mesmerised and cheering him on so much that he gave two encores at the end of his show. I was fortunate enough to go backstage after the show and meet this incredible singer and ‘feel’ a little of his story – an absolute Gentleman – humble, approachable and with a wonderful sense of humour – I now know why his tour is so aptly named the ‘Only Human Tour’ – well done Calum and how wonderful it was to share a bit of Space and Time with you”
