GONE Too Soon is a fabulous tribute to the music legends we all loved, who died way before their time, but live on through their timeless music.
The show will delight audiences old and young as they celebrate the powerhouse singers that became legends through their music over the past few decades and will be on stage at The Lyric at Gold Reef City for two shows only on October 20 at 8am and October 21 at 2pm.
Be transported on an unforgettable journey of pure nostalgia and heart-warming moments as homage is paid to a diverse selection of some of the greats, including 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 more.
South African artists will also be featured in the show, including Brenda Fassie and Mandoza.
While the show pays homage to these music icons who have left us too soon, the focus will be strongly on the uplifting atmosphere of inspiration that they continue to live on through their music, the memories they still evoke in all of us, as well as the impact that so many of them have made on the industry and world as a whole.
Executive producer Collett Dawson of The CoLab Network states: “I wanted Gone Too Soon to pay loving tribute to some incredibly talented musicians, who while they are not with us physically today, continue to be with us in the music they left behind. These artists have helped contribute to the DNA of the music we hear today.
“They have left a powerful musical legacy, uniting people from all age groups and races through their music. We all have so many memories linked to specific songs or artists that have woven a tapestry throughout our lives, so my aim with this concert is for the audience to sit back and listen – or to get up and dance – and celebrate the magic of this music.”
An exciting collaboration is the inclusion of the superb Johannesburg Youth Orchestra conducted by Eddie Clayton, celebrating their 20th Anniversary, who join the vocalists on stage to evoke over two hours of unforgettable memories.
Gone Too Soon is the ideal concert experience for old and young to celebrate in the magic of the legacies these music icons left behind and the indelible mark they left on all of us.
