Unbelievable but true, the American soul singer Percy Sledge will perform in Cape Town after 29 years of absence. His first show on South African soil was on May 29th 1970 in the Luxurama Theatre in Cape Town. The US artist will be backed this time by a spectacular 15 piece band that worked together on the Percy Sledge SA tour in 1984.
Added to the bill are the iconic South African PJ Powers, Cape Town’s party band The Rockets, featuring the original members and top vocal group The Boyz.
The show is a celebration of great music memories and is produced and conceptualized by Alistair Izobell and hosted by Cape Town’s own diva Shaleen Surtie-Richards. Don’t miss these dates!
