Symphonic Rocks into Johannesburg in 2011..

Last year saw the first production of the Symphonic Rocks in Cape Town with an A-List of South African artists on stage alongside, a 65 piece symphony orchestra.

This year, due to popular demand Symphonic Rocks will be hitting the Johannesburg skyline as well.

In association with 5FM, this year sees 9 different South African artists take stage at the Heineken® Symphonic Rocks. Johannesburg better get ready, with a sold out show in Cape Town last year, this is surely to be one of the music events to attend.

Just Jinjer, Watershed, Louise Carver, aKing and the Gang of Instrumentals took stage last year in Cape Town playing their well known songs with a 65-piece orchestra.

This year will be one different, with a mixture of genre’s, a variation of adult contempary, R&B, hip hop electro, pop to rock, this show is definitely one for the books!

Line up is made up the very talented Arno Carstens, Loyiso, Just Jinjer front man Ard Matthews, Zebra and Giraffe, CrashCar Burn, Tumi & the Volume, Flat Stanley. Johannesburg will also have Freshly Ground’s lead vocalist Zolani Mahola on the bill; as well as the Locnville twins performing. All this with the 65-piece band playing along. With a line up like you can understand why last year’s event was a massive success.

  • Tickets cost R225 in Cape Town and R225, R250 and R275 in Johannesburg at Computicket.  Bookings open on Friday 15 July 2011. Capacity at each of the venues is limited so fans are advised to book in advance.
  • Visit in the coming weeks for update on the event.

You can certainly only begin to imagine how amazing this show will be. I remember reading online the reviews regarding last year’ event and all I could think was “lucky Cape Town“. I will certainly be making my way to the Big Top Arena at Carnival City to witness this event live for myself!!

Watch this space as we will have more and more info available as the event gets closer.
