A celebration of classics with Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse

Lets take a moment to appreciate a musical ICON and his continuous timeless performances. 

In 2018, the legendary musical icon Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse took to stage after an absence of more than 30 years with a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance with his band, including Paul Simon, friend and respected muso Tony Cedras at The Baxter Theatre in Cape Town.

Fortunately for us all, this sell-out concert was captured on film, and commenced on Friday, 29 May 2020, for ONE WEEK ONLY, this two-hour celebration of classic music, new voices and extraordinary light and sound production, is enjoying a new lease on life for a fleeting seven days.

Thanks to the power of digital collaboration with TicketPro, Music Exchange (MEX) , the original producers of the show, have teamed up in 2020, during the height of the current COVID-19 lockdown, to present this very rare and special moment in time for the very first time online.

All proceeds from kind donations received over the seven days will go towards supporting the artists and crew who set the night alight.

The Baxter Theatre, equally compromised by COVID-19 reality, will also benefit with a percentage of the proceeds going towards their solidarity efforts in keeping their critical precinct alive now and well into the future.

Sipho’s long-overdue Mother City return was a night worth capturing in time, if only because the new (Siphokazi Jonas, Roshdien Jaz, Mmino and the South African Youth Choir) and the tried-and-tested powerhouse that is “Hotstix” delivered a one-of-a-kind performance that’s finally being repeated!
