SA Top Pop Idol, Elvis Blue, To Perform Live at The Bravo Lounge
Good news for Elvis Blue fans. He is performing live in concert at the Garden Route Casino’s Bravo Lounge on Saturday the 24th of May – putting zest into the winter entertainment line-up.
A capacity crowd is expected for the show in which Elvis Blue will perform some of the hits that have made him a household name over the years, as well as songs from his latest Afrikaans album which was released in 2013. Tickets cost R100 per person and are available at the casino’s Customer Service desk. Pre-booking is advised.
“We are excited to welcome Elvis Blue to our stage in May. It promises to be an outstanding show, a real treat for his countless fans,” says the casino’s Promotions Coordinator, Tryana Potgieter
For most South Africans, this star needs little introduction, having become a household name when he participated, and went on to win, the 2010 MNet SA Idols competition, sharing half the profit with runner-up Lloyd Cele.
Since then, he has blazed a trail across the South African music industry, producing chart-topping songs like Things My Father Said, Lighthouse and Save Me, and performing to capacity crowds at music festivals and venues countrywide.
The past four years have been some of the busiest, most rewarding, and award winning years in Elvis Blue’s 14-year career in music.
With album sales in excess of 100 000, eight Top Ten radio singles, and more than 500 live performances to his credit Elvis Blue is reckoned as one of the most successful artists in our country. Today he’s reaping the rewards that come from great storytelling, striking lyrics and enchanting melodies. His latest album and chapter, Afrikaans, along with his last album, Journey, and his 2010 self-titled Universal Music debut Elvis Blue have all set a very high standard and aroused a great deal of positive criticism of the fans of great original music.
He is the first Afrikaans artist to scale the Top Ten of the iTunes Store chart — and he cracked it on the very first day of the release of Afrikaans. Elvis’ multiple SAMA (South African Music Award) nominations, over the past two years also highlight his talent as one of the most talented songwriters and performers in South Africa.
