Durban based icons, The Black Lapels, are heading off to The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway to perform their sell-out show, The Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute, for two nights only on Wednesday and Thursday, 15 and 16 June. A matinee show has been added on Thursday due to the evenings being sold out.
These performances will instantly transport patrons back to the hedonistic days of the sixties, San Francisco and the southern rock style that made Creedence an unforgettable force amongst a host of other “royalty” of that generation. The career of Creedence Clearwater Revival has, to date, seen 26 million records sold and an induction into the Rock ’n Roll Hall Of Fame.
Barnyard patrons are in for rocking shows, with the benefit of a public holiday (Youth Day) on 16 June. Audiences can expect to hear all the CCR hits including Down On The Corner, Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Have You Ever Seen The Rain, Suzie Q, Fortunate Son and Who’ll Stop The Rain.
Make sure you book to re-live the period, the iconography and experience the socially conscious impact John and Tom Fogerty, together with Stu Cook and Doug Clifford left embedded in the chemical haze of the late 60’s and early 70’s.
The Black Lapels feature seasoned and southern honed journeymen, Rob and Garth Warren; stick man, Gareth Gale; David Keytar and the young-gun himself, “Cool Hand” Luke Wyngaard.
Tickets are R130 per person, and seating will be as for normal shows, with no standing room. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 – 566 3045 or visit www.barnyard.durban. For further information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
