SIPHO “HOTSTIX” MABUSE, ALONG WITH TONY CEDRAS AND FRIENDS, RETURNS LIVE DURING LOCKDOW N!

After an absence of more than 30 years, Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse and his band, including Paul Simon friend and respected muso Tony Cedras, returned to Cape Town and The Baxter Theatre on Friday 25 October 2018, for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Fortunately for us all, this sell-out concert was captured on film, and commencing Friday, 29 May 2020, for ONE WEEK ONLY, this two-hour celebration of classic music, new voices and extraordinary light and sound production, will enjoy a new lease on life for a fleeting seven days.

Thanks to the power of digital collaboration with TicketPro, Music Exchange (MEX) , the original producers of the show, have teamed up in 2020, during the height of the current COVID-19 lockdown, to present this very rare and special moment in time for the very first time online.

All proceeds from kind donations received over the seven days will go towards supporting the artists and crew who set the night alight.

The Baxter Theatre, equally compromised by COVID-19 reality, will also benefit with a percentage of the proceeds going towards their solidarity efforts in keeping their critical precinct alive now and well into the future.

Sipho’s long-overdue Mother City return was a night worth capturing in time, if only because the new (Siphokazi Jonas, Roeshdien Jaz, The South African National Youth Choir and Mmino) and the tried-and-tested powerhouse that is “Hotstix” delivered a one-of-a-kind performance that’s finally being repeated!

CONCERTS IN THE PARK is pleased to announce that at 2pm on the 3 February 2019, at De Waal Park in Cape Town we will be starting the Concert Season with star studded lineup.

Sipho “HOTSTIX” Mabuse
The Rudimentals
Supported by Mmino

For the first time ever, the legendary Sipho “HOTSTIX” Mabuse will be performing at DeWaal Park. Sipho is an integral part of the entertainment industry, and his contribution to the diverse landscape of South Africa is appreciated and honoured by music lovers the world over. In fact, throughout the course of his 54-year career, Sipho has become a musical ambassador for South Africa.

Sipho late last year had a sold out show at the Baxter and is busier than ever. He remarked about De Waal Park ‘ I will be playing all the songs fans have come to associate with me like Jive Soweto, Shikisha and of course Burnout and we will throw in some surprises as well.’

Second on the lineup CONCERTS IN THE PARK are so pleased to welcome our long standing friends THE RUDIMENTALS. Celebrated AFRICAN-SKA band The Rudimentals is a socially diverse, fun-filled act that strives to interact with people of all ages and tastes. This multi-layered musical offering is made up of highly accomplished, talented and entertaining musicians, representing a blend of youth and experience. The band has also shared stages with some of South Africa’s top headliners, including Johnny Clegg, Lucky Dube, Hip Hop Pantsula, Freshlyground, Fuzigish; and toured extensively with the likes of The Wailers and legendary UB40….

Our headliners will be supported by the newly formed band MMINO.
The band members are based in Khayelitsha. The band was formed by Mohau Moahloli after playing for multiple bands around Cape Town. Mmino’s music is original and is influenced by the diverse African culture it has the fusion of African pop, Afro soul disco, Mbhaqanga jams with a twist of reggae making it more current and relevant music. All instruments are played live on stage , the music is inspired by the everyday experiences in the second largest township of South Africa. Being an example for the youth, they create music that caters for young and old across all races.

This first Concert will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience these amazing artists at ALMOST NO COST. Tickets will cost R20.00 per person and will be available for sale at Computicket from later this week and also at the gates on the day of the concert.

We look forward to seeing everybody for our Nation Building, community concerts for a Sunday of unbelievable entertainment.

Sipho Mabuse and the Rudimentals and Mmino for De Waal Park – Sunday 3rd Feb

Legendary South African artist Sipho Mabuse creates another milestone in his career with a 1st time ever performance at De Waal park in Upper Orange Street Gardens.

on Sunday 3rd February from 2pm with the Rudimentals and Mmino who performed with Sipho last year at a sold out Baxter Concert Hall in October 2018.

Sipho remarked their are so few place to perform in major cities and when the organisers approached my manager Martin Myers ,I had no hesitation in saying Yes
Why not do different places he said.

We are playing in a band stand that goes back many years The Concerts will be staged in the original Edwardian bandstand which was manufactured by Messrs Walter McFarlane & Co of Glasgow and presented to ‘the corporation’ in Cape Town by the Traders-Market & Exhibition Ltd. London in 1904.

It was moved from the original exhibition space in Green Point to De Waal Park some years later.
