Jazz legend Hugh Masekela to make magic at The Lyric


Iconic Hugh Masekela is set to bring his live music magic to The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino for two nights only at 3 and 4 June this year.

This International legend of local jazz has enjoyed six decades of acclaim as a trumpeter, bandleader, composer and lyricist. Hugh Masekela is known for his professionalism and charisma to fans of his mix of jazz, bebop, funk and Afrobeat.

Since 1954, Masekela has played music that closely reflects his life experiences. The agony, conflict, and exploitation South Africa faced during 1950s and 1960s inspired him to make music.

Now 72, the great Hugh Masekela constantly reinvents himself in subtle yet powerful ways that imbue his performances with magic. Over the years, he has won numerous awards, made countless records and established himself as a towering presence in South African music. He recently joined U2 on stage on the South African leg of their 360 Degree Tour to thunderous applause from the crowd – testimony to his wide and enduring appeal as a musical artist.

The performances take place at The Lyric Theatre on 3 and 4 June at 20:30. Tickets are priced at a fantastic R212.00 – R365.00 per ticket.
