And what better way to escape from the everyday office anxiety than to go for a live show or concert?
We’ve picked five live shows you can plan for right away. It’s a new decade, so trust us and don’t wait for the holidays to have fun.
After thousands of sell-out performances in more than 23 countries, the critically acclaimed ABBA Show is at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom. They’ve termed it ‘ABBAsolutely’ fantastic, and with classics like ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Take A Chance on Me’ and ‘Money Money Money’, it’s with good reason.
The show, produced by Showtime Management and straight out of Australia, will run at the iZulu Theatre until 12 January and for one night only on 18 January at Cape Town’s Grand West (see Computicket for details).
The Rocky Horror Show
The Rocky Horror Show tells the story of Brad and his fiancée Janet, two squeaky clean college kids who meet Dr Frank ‘n ‘Furter by chance when their car breaks down outside his house whilst on their way to visit their favourite college professor. It’s an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, frocks and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits. It’s a classic, and a great pick for couples to enjoy. It’s at the Artscape Opera House until 12 January, and will be at Monetcasino’s Teatro from 17 January – 1 March.
The Bee Gees Night Fever
If you’re based in the City of Gold, you’re in for a treat. This globally-revered tribute show, which runs from 24 January until 9 February at Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace, recreates the Bee Gee’s 1997 ‘One Night Only’ Las Vegas concert experience in a theatre-style production with over 2 hours of LIVE engaging entertainment. It’s said to immerse audiences into the disco era with exquisite trio harmonies and the iconic high-pitched falsetto. Don’t forget your Strepsils.
