Pop and country music duo, Bellamy Brothers to grace Independence Stadium stage

Pop and country music duo, Bellamy Brothers to grace Independence Stadium stage

The Bellamy Brothers, the famous American pop and country duo, perform in Windhoek for a single show on Friday night, 24 November at the Independence Stadium in Olympia. The Windhoek concert is part of the brothers current tour to South Africa.

Tickets are sold for N$800 each.

South African country singer, Jason Bradley, will do the opening act for the two brothers, Howard and David. The brothers over the years continue to prove that the trail they have walked to fame has been as unique as their music that is now celebrating 40 years of success.

The Bellamys officially lifted off the launch pad in 1976 when their single “Let Your Love Flow”, became an instant hit in both the U.S. and Europe. The love was indeed flowing as The Bellamys jammed for audiences on their sold-out concerts and shared stages with the likes of Loggins & Messina, the Doobie Brothers and the Beach Boys, with their signature blend of rock/country music.

Internationally, their story has been the same because they have released more than two-dozen hit songs outside the U.S. that were never released there. With a sharp eye on the songwriting skills that have been the bedrock of their success, Howard and David concur that their career is unique in their international finesse for matching their songs to the market.

“For the international releases, you have to have a strong melody and the lyric is very important, but internationally the melody is something fans can lock into even if they can not understand the lyrics,” noted David.

Howard and David continue to perform and film TV specials in Europe and around the world.
