'Above Us Only Sky' reveals the depth of the creative collaboration between John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Partnering on John’s ‘Imagine’ album, they changed the history of music.
'Above Us Only Sky' outlines the relevance of John and Yoko's music. It also delves into their message to a contemporary audience. The film examines how the art, activism, politics and music of the pair are intrinsically entwined. This documentary-style biopic got full cooperation from and exclusive access to Yoko Ono and the John Lennon Estate, making it a must-see for fans and historians.
Featuring never-seen-before footage of John and Yoko, new interviews and archive material, 'Above Us Only Sky' illustrates how the underlying message of the album was one of radical engagement, and that it is as relevant today as ever. See it at the Bioscope Independent Cinema in Maboneng this October.

Music lovers, this is a show you don't want to miss! Paying tribute to the music legends we all loved, who passed away before their time, Gone Too Soon will be on stage for two shows ONLY at Gold Reef City this October, bringing these beloved artists back to life through their timeless music. The show will delight audiences of all ages as they celebrate the powerhouse singers that became legends through their songs over the past few decades.
Be transported back in time and take an unforgettable journey of pure nostalgia and heart-warming moments, as homage is paid to a diverse selection of some of the greats. This includes Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Freddie Mercury, Luther Vandross, George Michael, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Prince, Amy Winehouse, Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole, John Lennon and many more. The lineup will also feature late South African artists such as Brenda Fassie and Mandoza.
While the show pays tribute to these music icons who have left us too soon, the atmosphere will be uplifting and focus on the memories their music still evokes in all of us, as well as the impact that so many of them have made on the industry and world as a whole.
Three of South Africa’s most talented vocalists Timothy Moloi, Joseph Clark and Mariechan (of Jamali and Popstars fame) will set the stage alight as they perform these instantly recognisable hits. An exciting collaboration is the inclusion of the superb Johannesburg Youth Orchestra, who'll join the vocalists for an unforgettable musical experience.
From Saturday, 20 October 2018 to Sunday, 21 October 2018.
The show will take to the stage at the following times:
