CUBIC INCH (article first published : 2006-03-4)

Durban’s contemporary rock band Cubic Inch will open for two of Bryan Adams shows during his 4 City tour this March.

Big Concerts, Algoa FM, East Coast Radio and 94.7 Highveld Stereo present international superstar, Bryan Adams, one of the world’s most potent forces back, in South Africa in March 2006. A concert in Durban will take place on March 11.

This will be the Canadian superstar’s fourth tour to South Africa, and will undoubtedly be just as outstanding as the first three – his last being his January ‘03 Kirstenbosch Gardens’ performances which sold out a remarkable three nights.

Room Service, his 11th studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard European Top 100 albums Chart, and was met with worldwide critical acclaim, selling millions of copies globally.

While his shows offer a repertoire that contains a selection of ballads, like (Everything I Do) I Do It For You and Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman? - and rock favourites, like Cuts Like A Knife, “8 till I die and Summer of ‘69 - an added excitement to the billing is the inclusion of one of Durban’s hottest progressive rock outfits ,Cubic Inch who will open the shows in Durban and Johannesburg.

James Robertson, ex-songwriter for Spoonfeedas, is lead vocalist, guitarist and the man who pens the music and lyrics for Cubic Inch, He made a mark in the music industry in 2001 when he wrote King with a Crown which made no 7 on the 5 Fm charts, (SA Rock Digest voted it No 1 song in 2001) followed by Alone which also charted No 1 just after he left Spoonfeedas and then Crumbling which rose to number 16 - also on the 5FM chart.

Chris Bame is the magic behind the bass guitar and provides backing vocals. This self-taught genius performed as a session musician and then joined up with the fellow member of the band, Phil Hoare who along with a female vocalist, performed original music for a while drummer and percussionist Phil Hoare, adds the third segment to Cubic Inch. Phil formed a progressive rock band after leaving school and touring South Africa playing to packed houses. He also studied drums and band management with the intention of a more diverse feel for the music industry.

Lead guitarist Tristan Anderson studied under master guitarist, James Andreas, in the United States, he is currently teaching guitar and has recently joined Cubic Inch after his return.

The concert on March 11 in Durban will take place at Westridge Park Tennis Stadium. Book at Computicket.
