This is set to be an incredible show and I am certainly making sure that I book my tickets early. The show pays tribute to the music legends we all loved, who died way before their time, but live on through their timeless music.
The show will delight audiences old and young as they celebrate the powerhouse singers that became legends through their music over the past few decades and stars Timothy Moloi, Joseph Clark and Mariechan (of Jamali fame) as well as the Joburg Youth Orchestra.
The show will be hosted at the The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City with only 2 shows on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October.
Be transported on an unforgettable journey of pure nostalgia and heart-warming moments as homage is paid to a diverse selection of some of the greats, including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Freddie Mercury, Luther Vandross, George Michael, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Prince, Amy Winehouse, Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole, John Lennon and more.
South African artists will also be featured in the show, including Brenda Fassie and Mandoza.
While the show pays homage to these music icons who have left us too soon, the focus will be strongly on the uplifting atmosphere of inspiration that they continue to live on through their music, the memories they still evoke in all of us, as well as the impact that so many of them have made on the industry and world as a whole.
An exciting collaboration is the inclusion of the superb Johannesburg Youth Orchestra conducted by Eddie Clayton, celebrating their 20th Anniversary, who join the vocalists on stage to evoke over 2 hours of unforgettable memories.
Gone Too Soon is the ideal concert experience for old and young to celebrate in the magic of the legacies these music icons left behind and the indelible mark they left on all of us.
Gone Too Soon is on at The Lyric at Gold Reef City for two shows only – Saturday 20 October at 20h00 and Sunday 21 October at 14h00.
Tickets range from R150 – R280.
