Versus Backyard Concert at Crusaders in Durban North

December 6 will see Tree63 frontman John Ellis and a number of other great artists performing at the first Backyard Concert to be staged at the ideally situated Northwood Crusaders Sports Club in Durban North.

Presented by C-Weed Outdoor Events, with the backing of Versus as the headline sponsor, this acoustic showcase will provide a much-needed new platform for Durban acts. At the same time, it will give locals an opportunity to enjoy the musical talent that abounds literally in their own backyard, while also serving as a fundraiser for Crusaders, whose aim is to help develop sport in the community.

The line-up includes Shannon Connolly, Zoe & Somebody’s Child, Shomon, Barry Thomson, Shannon Hope, Habit To and John Ellis, who’ll take to the stage at 21h00, ending the first Versus Backstage Concert on what is sure to be a high note.

The concert kicks off at 16h00 on December 6 and will be held in a giant marquee where food and drinks will be on sale. No picnic baskets, refreshments or alcohol will be allowed in but patrons are welcome to bring blankets and fold-up chairs. Gates open at 14h00.

Tickets R80 (R20 children under 12) at Computicket outlets (including most Shoprite, Checkers and MTN stores) or online at Limited tickets will also be available at the venue on the day.

Voted the top sports club in KwaZulu-Natal for three consecutive years, the Northwood Crusaders Sports Club is situated at 10 Ranleigh Crescent in Durban North (opposite the Fairway Engen garage at the bottom of Swapo Road/Broadway) and has plenty of secure parking.
