Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert Schedule 2011/2012

The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert Schedule has been released which does mean that summer is just around the corner, but sadly, looking at the line up it’s much of the same-old, same-old but this time with an R80 or R100 price tag.
This is, of course, ignoring the Parlotones, who demand a R125 entry fee because they didn’t make enough out of supporting Coldplay (where they were crap) or their myriad of other sponsorship and endorsement deals. Greed.

Of course, the repetitive line-ups and the higher prices won’t mean that each and every concert won’t be packed full and that Woolies won’t have to order in extra picnic food each Sunday – of course they will.

Anyway – here’s what’s on offer:

    I’d better diarise Jan 15th…the Missus has been after me to take her to a Johnny Clegg concert pretty much since she was Girlfriend, and we’re always at the other end of the country when he performs (somehow, the end we’re at has Kurt Darren, who is a very poor substitute).

    Thanks for the headsup, maybe I can finally put this item on the wishlist into the “done” pile…

    Since when can you enjoy a great band anywhere in the world for the equivelent of £10 . The Parlotones are not overpriced , get a grip !
