JOHNNY CLEGG & FRIENDS – THE FINAL CONCERT

2017-11-11 @ 18:00 - 23:00 SAST

Johnny-Clegg-and-Friends 2017

Johnny Clegg to perform last Johannesburg concert at Ticketpro Dome as part of The Final Journey World Tour, thanks to an overwhelming demand from his fans.

The once-off performance takes place at the Ticketpro Dome on Saturday, November 11, where Clegg will be joined on stage by a group of friends who include top local musicians Prime Circle, DJ Kent, Karen Zoid and Parlotones, to name but a few.

Earlier this year Johnny announced a final set of concerts in South Africa and overseas to thank his fans for their support over the 40-year long journey that spans his career. The Johannesburg concerts sold out within hours of opening, leaving many people disappointed.

The concert is built around Clegg`s unparalleled repertoire of songs which began with the release of Juluka`s Universal Men in 1979 and continued through the Savuka years and his more recent solo work. Clegg`s many different hits and live favourites will be brought to life by the biggest production ever created for a Clegg live show, supported by his world-class live band. Another highlight of the shows will be the different styles of dance that have been integral to Clegg`s life and work, ever since he learnt the fundamentals of Zulu music and traditional Zulu Inhlangwinini dancing with Charlie Mzila while still a teenager.

After the Final Journey World Tour Clegg will take time off to finish his autobiography and spend time with his family and do the things he hasn`t been able to do due to an incredible work schedule over the past three decades.
