In the last few years, Grand West Casino has hosted a number of international acts. For many though, these seem to have been spaced too far apart, however late 2015 and early 2016 will be the period in which huge names bombard the casino, giving loads of South Africans a reason to purchase their ticket to entertainment. If you thought the last few years’ entertainers including Pharrell and Lady Gaga were amazing, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Children of the 80s will be thrilled to hear that famed Swedish super group, Roxette, will be visiting SA for the first time in four years and performing to audiences at Grandwest Casino on the 7th of February 2016. The group rose to fame during the 1980s when their songs were heard on the lips of just about every teenager and young adult. The group is expected to perform some of their newer songs, as well as older, more beloved tunes including ‘Listen to your Heart’, ‘Dressed for Success’ and ‘Joyride’. Tickets can be purchased now and are selling for the price of R510 per person.
For those with more modern tastes, pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen will be hitting our shores on the 21st of October for her SA tour. Jepsen was slated to become a one-hit wonder after her 2012 hit ‘Call Me Maybe’ rocked the charts, but it seems she has grown musically in leaps and bounds. Now, her latest hits are topping the charts and fans will be able to see her perform such new songs as ‘I Really Like You’ and ‘Run Away with You’ at the concert. Tickets are on sale from R450.
If music is not where your interests lie, be sure to catch the king of comedy, Kevin Hart, on his ‘What Now?’ tour. The tour is scheduled to be one of the most fantastic happenings in the country in 2016 and the unapologetic comedian is sure to have you doubled over with laughter. Hart appeared in many international films including ‘Get Hard’ with fellow comedian, Will Ferrell, and was one of the hits of last year’s ‘Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber’ in which he did not hold back in his comedic critiques of the young singer. More recently, Hart was invited to host popular comedic satire show, Saturday Night Live, and is now a household name. Forbes magazine has titled Hart’s new tour, “The highest grossing comedy tour of all time” and if you want to ensure you don’t miss out on a second of the action, book your ticket for the show on 26 March 2016, starting at R400.
Fans of any of these artists are urged to buy their tickets as soon as possible, since all of the shows will very likely be sold out quickly. Read our Grand West Casino Review
