Much excitement as music icon (from my day for sure!) Chris de Burgh is heading to Sun International’s Time Square in Menlyn to perform at the Sun Arena on 2 March 2018.
This is one of only two shows de Burgh will do while in South Africa as part of his A Better World album tour.
With an illustrious career spanning over three decades and a long list of platinum selling albums, de Burgh has a significant following of fans in South Africa. His show at the Sun Arena is expected to sell out soon.
This British-Irish singer-songwriter and instrumentalist, known for his art rock performances and who also writes pop-oriented material, has had several top 40 hits in the UK and two in the US, but he is more popular in other countries, particularly Norway and Brazil. Songs like “Man on the line”, “High on Emotion”, “Into the Light” and “Lady in Red” have made him a household name in South Africa.
With a Master of Arts degree in French, English and History, de Burgh’s self-written lyrics are well thought through, articulate and enough to tug at the heartstrings of romantics and music-lovers. A Better World sees this music icon fuse so many styles, tempos and instrumentation. And whilst ballads, rock anthems and solo performances with band or orchestral ensemble pieces can be expected from de Burgh in yet another evocative show, he infuses rock and pop with regional flavour, from Caribbean to Celtic.
As always de Burgh has crafted this album from several themes and topics close to his heart, including love, war and adventure, travel, discovery and home-coming, the past, the present – and the future. This tour will to the country be the ninth one de Burgh has embarked on and marks the 25th anniversary since he toured South Africa in celebration of the lifting of the cultural boycott.
