Are you ready to experience awesome? Something so cool, wildly popular and something that is fresh and hasn’t been to SA before? Good, because what you’re looking for in on the way in the form of the BLUE MAN GROUP. Big Concerts announced earlier that the highly acclaimed group will be touring South Africa for the first time next February. The

If you’re unfamiliar with the group, they offer a full on entertainment package in the form of a comedy show, some theatre and a dance/ rock party. Fun times. Over 35 million people in some 15 countries have seen them perform and now we’re going to get to experience them right here on our own turf.

Co-founder Chris Wink says, “When we first began creating performances centred on this innocent, curious character called Blue Man, we never dreamt where he would lead us.  We are so honoured to be able to share our show with the people of South Africa and beyond.  We believe the Blue Man’s universal message of joyful exuberance and euphoric celebration resonates within all of us.”

CEO of Big Concerts, Justin Van Wyk said “BLUE MAN GROUP is hugely popular around the world – first time audiences often leave the theatre so exhilarated by the show that it has one of the highest return businesses of any theatrical event.  We know it will be the talk of Johannesburg and Cape Town when audiences finally get to experience this innovative, playful and colourful spectacle.”

Lira to support Jill Scott

LIRA2

Fact: Jill Scott is going to be bringing a lot of soul to Joziwood next month. She’s hugely popular and the show promised to be good fun. Now it has been elevated from good to great because the news of Lira supporting Scott has just been announcement. Lira is one of SA’s most loved and celebrated stars. She oozes style, elegance and her talent is undeniable. So it’s only fitting that the the Phakade singer has the duties of warming the crowd up with her soulful sounds come the 13th of December.

Blackbyrd to open for Mike and the Mechanics

Attention Capetonians: SAMA nominees, Blackybyrd will be opening for English rockers, Mike and the Mechanics later this month. The news dropped earlier. The all-girl band made up of Tarryn Lamb, Tamsyn Maker and Axene Chaberski-Loubser have enjoyed a lot of success on radio charts around the country, and now they’ve been given the chance to open up for the legendary band in just under two weeks. The gig is taking place at the Grand Arena in Cape Town on the 20th of August.

Tickets are available from Computicket and prices start at R285.

Jozi peops, they are two opportunities for you to see them. One on the 17th in Sun City (love the SuperBowl) and then on the 18th at Carnival City (personally I’d rather go to Sun City if Imma drive all that way, #justsaying).

I reckon this will be quite a cool gig. Over my Shoulder is a classic track that I still adore, so why not kickstart this Monday with a little bit of Mike and the Mechanics then:
