Sipho Hotstix Mabuse to celebrate Burnout with his show “Timelessness 50 years on” Wed 1 Oct Lyric Theatre

TIMELESSNESS 50 years on 

On Wednesday evening, 1 October, for one-night-only, one of South Africa’s, and indeed the world’s, most admired and respected musicians – Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse – is set to perform at The Lyric Theatre, Johannesburg, in a special, single performance, affair.

Titled Timelessness, a name coined by Mabuse, the show will  tip its hat to the masters, taking fans on musical journey filled with extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, performances.

2014 is a momentous year in Mabuse’s 50-year career immersion in music. Not only is it his golden anniversary of his unwavering commitment and contribution to South African music, it is 30 years ago his now 500 000 copy-selling single “Burn Out” changed the face of shape of Afro-pop and township jive like no other song or artist in pop music history.

Timelessness

From his first group, Harari, through to his stellar solo career that spans the better part of his adult life, Mabuse’s Lyric Theatre reveal is going to be jam-packed with so many hits and memories, beyond “Burn Out”, that “we might not be able to fit it in,” he jokes.

Beyond competent and hugely applauded, the magic this musician makes is practically impossible to pigeonhole. Drummer, flautist, alto flautist, pianist, saxophonist, kalimba player, timbale and African drummer, Mabuse’s raw ability and talent know no limit!

His name became synonymous with township jive nearly three decades ago, and today his live performances still present the master’s art as the stuff of legend.

As the musical ambassador for South Africa, performing in virtually every country in Africa and touring the US, England, France, Germany and Italy, amongst many more, Mabuse’s recorded and produced the likes of Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Ray Phiri and Sibongile Khumalo.

Head out to The Lyric Theatre, at Gold Reef City, and come celebrate the multiple anniversaries with his friends, peers and contemporaries. Expect tributes, tears and Timelessness aplenty as Sipho”Hotstix” Mabuse unpacks, retells and delights the night with songs that remain as perpetual as the master maker himself.

Peaches & Herb set to conquer Cape Town – Sat 4th May

American soul supremos Peaches & Herb will wow Cape Town early this May.

Peaches & Herb

Peaches & Herb

The Sweethearts of Soul, as they are known, are set to perform on Saturday 4 May at GrandWest Casino outside Cape Town.

Hot new concert promoter Lifestyle Events International has brought the hit makers to Cape Town for a historic, once off concert that will feature the duo’s latest and greatest hits: Reunited, Let’s Fall in Love, Close your Eyes, For Your Love, Love is Strange and Shake Your Groove Thing.

The event has been welcomed by an unexpected fan. Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille has given the show her endorsement. This rare honour gives Lifestyle Events International the right to use the city’s logo on all of its advertising material.
This is more than a mere show of goodwill.
Proving that they are concert promoters with a conscience, Lifestyle Events International have vowed to give R10 of each ticket sold to the Mayoral Special Fund, which is used to assist the needy.

Peaches & Herb began its meteoric rise in 1976 when Let’s Fall in Love hit the charts. Thereafter followed a steady succession of hits. Reunited attained the no 1 slot worldwide in 1980 and has become known as the duo’s signature song; but other, equally successful hits followed. Reunited’s success was followed a year later by the dazzlingly successful album I Pledge My Love, which has gained favour as a wedding march. The duo cemented their success the following year when they stormed the hit parade with Bluer than Blue.

Strong & smooth Herb and the rather peachy Peaches will ignite the stage of GrandWest with his brandy-and-cream voice and her velvet tones.
Wanda Tolson is the latest in a series of illustrious female performers to take to the stage as Herb’s singing partner Peaches.
Boasting an independent singing career that is as successful as that of her 6 predecessors, the current Peaches also introduces a fresh, sexy quality to the duo.

For Herb in particular, this latest concert will be special. The veteran crooner gets to conquer a whole new city and a whole new populace, in a country he has not visited before.

The concert will be held in the Grand Arena of GrandWest, which for the duration of this night will be transformed into an intimate stage for one of the world’s most unforgettable duos – one that after 40 years in the spotlight can still shake their groove thing.
The Peaches & Herb concert takes place on Saturday 4 May at 8.30 pm in the Grand Arena, GrandWest. Tickets range from R230. Tickets are available from Computicket.
