Concert for June disasters
Top musos unite to help those affected
LOOKING for a fun way to spend tonight, while supporting a charitable cause? Look no further than the United in Hope Benefit Concert, taking place at Cape Town’s Grand Arena tonight.
Independent Media is partnering with local radio station Goodhope FM for this event, which will feature some of the country’s biggest entertainers, all in the name of charity.
All proceeds from tonight’s event will go to those affected by the Cape storm and the Knysna fires that left a trail of devastation in their wake in June, as well as the Community Chest and the South African Red Cross Society for their huge relief efforts in those communities.
The Voice South Africa season two winner Craig Lucas headlines a stellar line- up which includes Locnville, Chad Saaiman, Nasty C, Tresor, CODA Africa, The Black Ties, Grassy Spark, Sweet Resistance and Chiano Sky, all of whom are donating their time and talents pro bono.
Funnymen Dalin Oliver and Carl Weber are guaranteed to keep the crowd in stitches, while SA’s top ventriloquist, Conrad Koch of Chester Missing fame, is also on board to keep guests entertained.
Good Hope FM DJs Kyeezi, Danilo Acquisto, Nigel Pierce, Dan Corder and Stan Mars will MC the event.
Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille has also thrown her weight behind the benefit concert, commending the support the event has received thus far.
“There has been a remarkable outpouring of concern and it is heart-warming to know that the acts of goodwill continue with the United in Hope benefit concert,” she said, adding that the event will help make a significant difference in the lives of those who lost so much in the disasters.
Tickets for the United in Hope concert cost R150 and are available to purchase online from Computicket.com. Doors on the night will open at 5pm, with the concert scheduled to begin at 6pm.
