Johnny Clegg Live at The Baxter Theatre in Cape Town

94.7 Unplugged

Johnny Clegg, one of South Africa’s most prolific musicians, will make his return to The Baxter Theatre in Cape Town (after 10 years) in September 2013. Johnny will be delighting his fans with rare unplugged performances at the theatre from 18 to 22 September 2013.

This very intimate show will include storytelling by Johnny Clegg, where he talks about the events in his life and political history of South Africa and the world at that time that motivated him to write that song. It is a personal journey, which is uplifting, moving and also humorous at times.

Johnny Clegg has sold more than five million albums worldwide. He has wowed audiences with his live shows, including performances with Nelson Mandela, and won a number of national and international awards for his music and for his outspoken views on apartheid and migrant workers in South Africa. He has released two dozen albums, the most recent of which is Human, in 2010.

Johnny Clegg is a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, activist and French knight. Whilst all of these tags are fitting, none of them can accurately describe the energetic, passionate human being who has become one of South Africa's greatest musical exports. Clegg is an icon of South African music. Recently awarded three honorary doctorates from Dartmouth College, CUNY and University of the Witwatersrand, on Freedom day, the 27th of April 2012, Johnny Clegg received the presidential IKHAMANGA award as part of the National Orders ceremony. The National Orders are the highest honour a citizen can receive for his/her contribution to South Africa.

The Glen Boutique Hotel are proud to be hosting Johnny Clegg during his stay in the city.

Johnny Clegg and band will be driven by Citroen Cape Town for the Baxter Theatre shows.
