From the producers that brought you the world-renowned tribute shows such as The Greatest Love of All (starring Port Elizabeth-born Belinda Davids), The Michael Jackson History Show (with Kimberley-born superstar, Dantanio Goodman) as well as Beatlemania On Tour, a brand new tribute experience is set to make its international touring debut in South Africa this April.
Piano Man: The Billy Joel Show, is the latest tribute show set to dazzle South Africans this Easter, launching from the hands of renowned universal production company Showtime Australia – who have proven over the years to be the leading producers in the global tribute show genre.
Set to premiere in Durban at Sibaya Casino from 18-28 April, Australian-born musician and piano man himself, Steven Michael, brings to life the highlights of Joel’s career live on piano, guitar and vocals, bolstered by tight band, iconic saxophone solos and rich backing vocals to make up that true and authentic, streets-of-New-York, Billy Joel sound.
As one of the most consummate songwriters, storytellers and most-loved musicians in popular music, Billy Joel’s work has infiltrated the lives of generations and played the soundtrack to our most memorable moments. You too can join in the musical celebrations of this legendary musician’s glorifying career, with this brand new global captivating concert tribute.
For Michael, performing in Durban this Easter month will be his first visit to the country. “Kicking off this show in South Africa will be such a thrilling experience and I can’t wait to ‘hit the keys’ for you guys.”
Audiences will be serenaded with ageless classics such as New York State of Mind, Just the Way You Are, Always a Woman, Uptown Girl, Only the Good Die Young, You May Be Right, Tell Her About It, The Longest Time, Say Goodbye to Hollywood, My Life and many more.
