Get ready for a thigh-slapping, toe-tapping party

Fans of country music can get their dancing shoes ready for the toe-tapping, thigh-slapping Country Legends and Friends show at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena. The date is set for Saturday, 4 October 2014.

The concert brings together some of the biggest names in South African country music, including Lance James, Barbara Ray, Clive Bruce, Sally Vaughn, Tommy Dell, Jody Wayne, Juanita du Plessis, Jason Bradley, Chantell Williams, and The Rodeo Girls.

The runaway success of the previous Country Legends and Friends concerts proves that country music is alive in kicking in South Africa. A huge crowd is expected for this country music extravaganza.

“Buoyed by the super success of previous Country Legends shows, we anticipate a capacity crowd at the Big Top Arena for this show. We urge fans to book their tickets sooner rather than later,” says Jaco Saaiman, Entertainment Manager at Carnival City.

This show, once again produced by Frans Swart and Lefra Productions, builds on the success of previous Country Legends shows, combing well-known country singers with new voices in the industry.
