Johnny Clegg – The Fi­nal Jour­ney

NEARLY 40 years af­ter he be­gan one of mu­sic’s most re­mark­able ca­reers, Johnny Clegg is em­bark­ing on a fi­nal world tour, ti­tled The Fi­nal Jour­ney World Tour. The iconic South African artist will start this live jour­ney at Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino this week­end, be­fore head­ing to Jo­han­nes­burg and Dur­ban later this year. The tour will be 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 works. 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. Tick­ets from R375, 8pm, GrandWest Casino THE Play­house The­atre presents Pri­vate Peace­ful, a play based on the book by Michael Mor­purgo. It de­tails the gritty ru­ral lives and loves of Tommo and Char­lie, two young broth­ers and their poor Devon­shire fam­ily from 1909 un­til 1916, when the out­break of war destroys their coun­try idyll. Both join up, one un­der age, leav­ing be­hind the beau­ti­ful Molly who is the love of both their lives. The young men sur­vive gas at­tacks, shelling, Ger­man troops and the ap­palling deaths of their close friends. But one thing they can­not es­cape is sum­mary mil­i­tary jus­tice. Tick­ets R80, 8pm, Som­er­set West MEET Peter Pan, Wendy Dar­ling and her broth­ers, as well as Tinker­bell and the Lost Boys in a mag­i­cal mu­si­cal telling of the clas­sic JM Bar­rie story Peter Pan this July. Fun for the whole fam­ily, don’t miss out on your op­por­tu­nity to sus­pend re­al­ity and es­cape to Never Land.
