After the fantastic success of a show at Sun Arena in Pretoria last year, Capetonians finally have the chance to see Francois van Coke & Vriende perform at the Grand Arena, GrandWest on 3 May 2019.
Francois van Coke, raised in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs, rose to fame as the legendary frontman of celebrated South African rock bands Fokofpolisiekar (2003 - to date) and Van Coke Kartel (2007 - 2017). He launched his solo career in 2015 with the release of the most poignant ballad of that year, `Toe vind ek jou` featuring Karen Zoid. Last year Francois decided to celebrate his long legacy by hosting a rock spectacular, showcasing his collaborations with various prominent local artists with whom he has produced some of South Africa’s most memorable songs. Francois says, “The Francois van Coke & Vriende 2018 Pretoria show was without a doubt the highlight of my career. It was inevitable that I bring this show to my city, Cape Town.”
“Whatever you do, don`t miss out on this special night,” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest. “This rock spectacular featuring so many of our favourite local performers is bound to be one of the best local music shows we’re hosting this year.” The backbone of this show will be Francois van Coke with his band, Die Gevaar, who will perform various songs from his solo career. During the show, his friends will join him on stage to perform the anthems they’ve created together, as well as their own hits. The friends for Cape Town include Jack Parow, Majozi, Fokofpolisiekar, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Laudo Liebenberg, Coenie de Villers, Early B, Arno Carstens, Van Coke Kartel and Riana Nel.
Tickets to this show are available from Computicket, starting at R225. Show starts at 20h00 and doors open 19h00.
