Internationally-acclaimed Australian band, Planetshakers have arrived in South Africa to host worship events across the country kicking off in Cape Town with the Planetshakers Conference hosted at Every Nation Church, in Goodwood from Friday to Saturday.
The next leg of the tour will take place in Centurion on Sunday, at 3C Church, followed by an event in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday July 17 at Word of Faith Christian Centre and at the Royal Show Grounds in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday July 18.
Faith Revival Church, Durban, will host the band on July 20 and they will be in Liberty Church, Randburg, Johannesburg on July 21. The SA tour will end in Pretoria on Sunday July 22 at CRC Church in Ferndale.
Nominated for multiple Dove awards, Planetshakers have thrilled their global fan base with the release of 35 albums since 2000, with songs like Nothing is Impossible and Endless Praise climbing Christian Billboard charts.
Following the trend of modern worship bands, Planetshakers features a large group of vocalists, who lead worship at the Planetshakers Church, when they’re not on annual tours to the United States, Europe, Asia, New Zealand, South Africa and other countries.
The visit to Port Elizabeth on Tuesday will be the Melbourne-based band’s first visit to the city, which often misses out on significant worship music tours in South Africa.
“We are very excited about Planetshakers coming to Port Elizabeth and hope to see representatives from every church attend as well as anyone else who is a fan of the band and Christian music,” said organiser, Manny Eagle of Word of Faith Christian Centre and Salt and Light Productions.
The concert venue can host up to 2 000 spectators and is expected to fill up fast, he said. Tickets are available at Bonamia Restaurant in the Walker Drive Centre, at Word of Faith Christian Centre in William Moffett Expressway.
