Johnny Clegg: Live at Kirstenbosch Gardens
This Sunday I went to see Johnny Clegg perform at the Kirstenbosch Gardens and I have to say it was pretty firetrucking magical.
3 words … African Sky Blue.
For those of you who have not yet witnessed the splendour, beauty and sheer African awesomeness that are the Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts, do yourself a favour and book for next Sunday. Regardless of who is performing. You will love it and I will say this in advance, you’re welcome.
Tickets are available at Webtickets and for full deets check out the Old Mutual concerts page.
‘The White Zulu’ as he is affectionately known, is a South Africa music legend and judging by yesterday’s sold out performance is as popular as ever. Johnny C is not just a great performer and songwriter but a story-teller and along with entertaining the masses with a mix of old, new and classic crowd favourites, he had everyone entranced by the stories he told, up on stage.
Towards the end of the concert everyone was dancing and singing along. Except for this dude, who decided to rather lay down with his back to the stage and read his book instead.
Concerts… you are doing it wrong.
Maverick thumbs up to JC and the Kirstenbosch Gardens for a glorious reminder that we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
