The South African State Theatre is proud to finally announce the one night only performance of the phenomenal Ringo Mandlingozi scheduled for 30th September.
As we will be marking the end of the heritage month in South Africa, the multi award winning Afro-pop singing sensation remarkably praised as “The Phenomenon” promises a night that will reconnect us all in diversity. “A Ringo concert is not just a performance. It is an intensely spiritual, rhythmic and healing journey that takes you with him to the heights of oneness with all that is in the Universe,” said Ringo. He adds that part of his mission is to leave as a legacy of a rich cultural and musical heritage for generations that will live on this planet, long after his era.
Ringo is no stranger to the State Theatre. His last performance at the Theatre was back in 2015 Mzansi Fela Festival where he performed to a sold out house he’s yet geared to returning. He had also recorded a LIVE ‘Best Hits Concert’ back in 2003- Which he released in both DVD and CD format in August of the same year. The Ringo Live CD reached multi-platinum status in sales, with the DVD reaching multi-platinum status. The DVD was recently in the top five SA national charts and top ten international charts due to its excellent production quality
Having established himself as a popular brand after 10 studio albums, 2 live CD/DVDs and one compilation album, Ringo is destined for greater things, as he works his way up the music ladder on his latest studio album. He remade the album recorded in his first solo venture as Gecko Moon and released it to a huge and warm reception. It reconnected him with his Gecko Moon and Peto fans and as a crossover album it won him new fans in Reggae, Rhythm & Blues and Pop music genres. As a producer, he has produced the world renowned Miriam ‘Mama Africa’ Makeba and Durban Gospel greats Avante. Mama Africa’s CD was nominated and received a number of local and international awards. He continues to compose and produce the music in all his albums.
Tickets for the show can be purchased at various Computicket outlets for R150- R350. The State Theatre is easily accessible to disabled patrons. The show will start at 20:00. Patrons are advised to arrive an hour earlier for collection of their tickets at the box office.
