43 Years on and Smokie is still rocking. This prolific English rock band returns to South Africa for the first time since 2015 to enthral their fans with a concert at Time Square’s state of the art Sun Arena. After old out shows during their tours of South Africa in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2015, Smokie is set to sellout the Sun Arena on 28 March 2020.
Fans can look forward to seeing the band perform their anthology of timeless hits on stage with all of the enthusiasm and edge for which they have been known for over four decades. The internationally successful British pop group Smokie is famous for chart-topping hits like “Living Next Door to Alice”, “Lay Back in the Arms of Someone” and “If You Think You Know How to Love Me”. The band’s constant tours of the UK, Europe and Asia has kept them at the forefront as one of the United Kingdom’s most successful and longest-running live bands.
Look at the Guinness Book of Hit Singles and you could be forgiven for thinking Smokie`s success story was a 1970`s phenomenon. After all, 11 of their 14 British hits came from that eventful musical decade. However, their massive success story has continued to flourish around the globe including Scandinavia, South Africa, Germany and China. In 2010, Smokie gained new chart success with a CD of brand new material, Take a Minute. Released in Denmark in August of that year, it peaked at number three on the Danish Albums Chart.
Smokie is a band which has sold out tours and gained platinum records across four decades from the 70s, 80s and 90s, to now. Smokie currently comprises Mike Craft, Terry Uttley, Mick McConnel, Steve Pinnell and Martin Bullard.
Tickets to the concert at Time Square on 28 March are priced from R315 at Computicket. The show will start at 20h00.
