An Evening with Ladysmith Black Mambazo promises to be an exclusive and intimate evening of non-stop nostalgia, taking the audience on a journey through their many successes – both locally and abroad spanning the last five decades.
Instantly recognizable hits like Homeless, Diamonds on the soles of her shoes, Nomathemba, Ofananaye, Lelilungelo, Phanse Emgodini and many others will provide an experience not to be missed.
“Gold Reef City is proud to host the iconic four time Grammy Award winners at our equally iconic theatre,“ says Gold Reef City Marketing Manager, Gareth Kaschula. “Their show further imprints Gold Reef City as the premier entertainment destination in the south of Johannesburg”, he adds.
An Evening with Ladysmith Black Mambazo is an ultimate evening for the die-hard fan as well as those who wish to experience one of South Africa’s biggest music success stories for the first time.
“I am honoured and thrilled that I get to produce this very special anniversary celebration as the group has always been one of my life-long favourites and are so inspirational to our industry as a whole. They are proof that it’s not only about incredible talent, but with hard work, discipline and humility, you can truly reach for the stars and attain them”, says Collett Dawson, Owner of The CoLab Network.
She continues; “Joburg audiences haven’t had the opportunity to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo in a while, so this evening at Gold Reef City is going to be such a treat for the audience.”
