Real Concerts, headed up by Roddy Quin, is one of South Africa's foremost concert promoters. Since Real Concerts' inception in 1994, Quin has gained a reputation as one of South Africa's most adventurous promoters and has successfully brought to the country many heavyweight music acts, among them Massive Attack, Garbage, Placebo, Skunk Anansie, Spin Doctors, Hootie & the Blowfish, Tevin Campbell, Youssou N 'Dour and Tracy Chapman.
The highly-competitive dance music scene has also not eluded Real Concert's imaginative eye. The first half of 2001 saw the company stage two exceptionally successful events in both the rave and urban house markets, with more planned in the future. Always keen to explore fresh terrain, Real Concerts established Real Comedy in 2000, unleashing a number of events that have captured the imagination of a growing number of comedy fans throughout the country. Quin and his team have also entered the contemporary theatre arena and successfully produced a 12-week run of the Ben Elton play 'Popcorn' in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Quin and his skilled Real Concerts team draw on vast experience in the industry to ensure high production values and absolute attention to detail when promoting any event. It's this commitment combined with a deep appreciation and understanding of the global entertainment arena that ensures Real Concerts remains ahead of the crowd. Real Concerts incorporates into its vision a commitment to the development and evolution of a democratic and culturally viable South Africa. To this end, it is Real Concerts' policy to promote training and development in the field of culture and entertainment.
