Discovery 947 Rhythm Run 2019

Dates: Saturday, 25 May 2019

The third Discovery 947 Rhythm Run is the coolest night run in Jozi, where you get to hit the track while listening to great tunes. Besides testing your endurance and pushing your limits while having a blast with friends and meeting new people, you’ll get to choose your timed route: 4.7km or 9km. And once you’ve crossed the finish line and felt the burn, the track will turn into a massive dance floor and host a rocking after-party, where you’ll get to celebrate, dance, party and mingle with 947 DJs and other local personalities.

Andrea Bocelli Is Coming To Town!

One of the biggest classical legends will be taking centre stage for TWO shows in South Africa this April! Andrea Bocelli has recorded 15 solo studio albums of both pop and classical music, three greatest hits albums and nine complete opera. For his latest release, Si, Andrea Bocelli has teamed up with some of the hottest musical stars on the planet. It is his first album of new material in 14 years – 16 brand new songs which celebrate love, family, faith and hope.

At the centre of the new record is a spine-tingling duet between father-and-son, as Matteo Bocelli steps into the limelight to duet with Andrea on Fall On Me – a beautifully poignant song which reflects the bond between parent and child.

Bocelli’s humble manner belies his international status as one of the world’s biggest classical stars – he’s sung for Popes, Presidents and royalty, performed in all the greatest concert halls and opera houses around the world, and sold 85 million records. He has performed at major international events including the Olympic Games and the World Cup, as well as his own sell-out arena shows. He has a Golden Globe, 7 Classical BRITs and 7 World Music Awards under his belt, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The concert will be split into two parts. For the first part, fans will get to experience Andrea Bocelli perform some of the most famous opera arias.
