My experience in South Africa was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The shows were truly great. With unbelievably fantastic audiences & the venues themselves were brilliant. But the rest of the time we spent in & around the resorts were equally unforgettable. Fantastic staff & security. Breath-taking wildlife viewing opportunities. Great food. & totally relaxing environment. Andy & his team made our visit to South Africa, hands down the most special adventure my family & I have ever been on. I can’t wait to come back...

Once again, our trip to South Africa was made all the more special by Andy Mac and all at AMP. Touring and flying that far away from home can certainly become an arduous affair when doing this type of thing for as long as I have. For a promoter to actually give a shit about your well-being these days, makes such a difference on long hauls like this. AMP once again, put a staggering amount of work into making our trip the funnest, most prosperous, and easiest possible endevour imagined…especially for how many of us there were. We felt welcomed to a family there, half way around the world. I simply love these kind people...

Was it a dream, or did I just experience a life changing moment on our South African Adventure…? Without a shadow of a doubt, this remarkable trip will forever be logged into my memory for the rest of my life. The shows were amazing, with a wonderful bond with the fans…highly emotional, and energized: they hung onto every note we sang and played. Andy Mac and his team set a high bench mark of excellence, far beyond any other I have encountered…

An absolutely brilliant experience!! Andy Mac & Mandy transformed a work experience into a once in a lifetime dream come true! I have no idea how it could have been any better! It was really my best tour experience so far…

Having just returned home from South Africa, I would like to say that Andy Mac & his team were nothing short of stunning …. in the 35 years I’ve been doing this I’ve never come across such warm & real hospitality !!…nothing was too much trouble, they were always there either in the lobby, at the gig or at the end of the phone to help & guide us through any situation we might have been unsure of. If the Def Leppard shows we’re about to partake in are half as well organised I’ll be a happy man….. I CAN’T WAIT to come back to South Africa again with Def Leppard…

What a wonder place to end Leg 1 of the World Tour. The love of an audience that’s never seen us before made it just a joy to play to and make it a quite memorable experience for our time here in South Africa. Thank you to Andrew and his team for making us so welcome and looking after us so well. Until next time….
La la love you .


Working with Andy, Mandy and the AMP Events team in South Africa for the Throwing Copper 20th Anniversary Tour was one of the best experiences of my 23 years as a professional musician. It would take many more than a few quotes to cover all of the ways that they went above and beyond in terms of logistics, production and overall professionalism. We all do this for one reason; and that is to give the fans the most amazing shows possible and those of us who do this for a living know what it takes to pull it off. A quick purview of my Facebook page and the posts regarding this tour with AMP in South Africa is the best way to see how extraordinarily successful we were! Kudos and cheers AMP Team, we did it!


Yes, indeed…! The invitation to join you, Andy, and the AMP crew stands as another epic journey for all of us…all treated to one of the nicest experiences to come our way in quite a while. Simply superb. The AMP measure of professionalism and supreme hospitality is unsurpassed on each and every level which provided an enjoyable experience throughout South Africa that defies description. Foremost entertainment at it’s finest. We must say, again, “Thank You” for the warm welcome and attention to detail for everyone and every detail involved. To rally and get to the point, there now exists a friendship with the AMP crew that we feel is solid as Table Mountain…! Wondrous…!
In closing, we think you all are “TOPS” and we look forward to the next round of good times together! Gracias!


My family and I were taken back by the hospitality offered by AMP. We always felt secure and welcomed. What I will always remember most are the beautiful and kind hearted people of S. Africa. Even the lions put their arms around us for a hug.

I have toured for over 25 years now… but this experience in S.Africa with AMP was unforgettable and life changing. Thank you guys for helping me achieve a dream that I will reminisce about for the rest of my days.


Throughout our stay in South Africa, Andy was a gracious and attentive host. It was clear to see that he takes pride in his work and values the relationships he builds. He wanted us all to have an incredible experience, and went out of his way to ensure that we did. Andy is a supportive and enthusiastic promoter who has a passion for music and cares about the work he does. Andy definitely went above and beyond to make this experience a spectacular one!


In all the years I have toured I have never worked with a team that made me feel more comfortable and more at home than AMP has. My first time to South Africa is something I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life and I have AMP to thank for that…….2nd to none and I can’t wait to come back and work with everyone from AMP again!


Andy and Mandy showed our entire party an excellent time while in South Africa, bending over backwards to make sure we were always comfortable and seeing the best of what South Africa has to offer their visitors. They always had smiles on their faces and we would go back again in a heartbeat.
