Published

on

— Competition Closed — Making a welcome return, Ian von Memerty returns to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre with his latest offering, Keyboard Killers from 9 – 13 November.

We are giving away 5 x double sets of tickets for the show on the 9th November. To enter you need to leave a comment below telling us why you would love to attend the show. *Std. T&C’s apply.

Take South Africa`s ‘King of the Keyboard’, von Memerty and put him together with eight of the greatest song writing piano stars and you have the recipe for a smash-hit, `killer` show! Why, of the millions of people who play the piano, are there those rare individuals whose music and lyrics inspire for decades? von Memerty takes eight of the greats – Stevie Wonder, Noel Coward, John Legend, Irving Berlin, Freddy Mercury, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and Billy Joel – an outstanding octave of pianistic power, and together with the driving percussion of Bronwen Clacherty and a the cool cat double bass of Andrew Warneke,  shares his love for these iconic creators.

It is an electrifying collection of talent and their musical legacy is unparalleled. Featuring the drama of Bohemian Rhapsody; the swinging cool of I Get A Kick out Of You; the wicked wit of Don`t Put Your Daughter On the Stage Mrs Worthington; the romance of Ordinary People; the showbiz razzle-dazzle of Puttin` On the Ritz; the groove and joy of Isn`t She Lovely; and the toe – tapping stride of Ain’t Misbehaving. Enjoy the virtuosity, the style, the sheer joy of great music and timeless words brought to new life by `the James Bond of South African musical theatre`.

With magnificent Lighting by David Limbert, Sets by Mark Farrow and Costumes by Morne van Der Schyff. Von Memerty is accompanied by two superb musicians, Bass – Andrew Warneke (Masters in Music), Percussion – Bronwen Clacherty (Doctorate in Music).

Durban is the final stop on a national tour which has played to capacity audiences and wonderful reaction.

Win Tickets to Milky Chance in Durban!

Published

on

Milky Chance recently announced their long-awaited return to South Africa with their “Living In A Haze” tour in February 2024 which will see them perform in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The German Duo are excited to confirm that both Neon Dreams and Sean Koch will join them as support acts on the line-up for their shows in Cape Town (15 February) and Johannesburg (17 February), and Neon Dreams will also join Milky Chance in Durban (18 February) as support act.

Canadian duo Neon Dreams are no strangers to the South African music scene. Their 2019 single “Life Without Fantasies” reached the top of the South African viral charts amassing millions of streams in 2021 during the lockdown. The band connected with tens of thousands of fans online which led to their first sold out headline tour. They have continued to cement themselves in the industry here, having toured the country a number of times over the past few years and return in February 2024 to share the stage with Milky Chance in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.

Sean Koch is one of SA’s most-loved indie-folk artists who brings a mixed bag of African and western, influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and the people around him; to his storytelling, feel-good music. While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. From dance infused songs like ‘Lift You Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix) to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to the natural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s catalogue.
