Barry Thomson takes centre stage at the Heritage Theatre, for two performances only on August 5 and 6 in a salute to artists who have had a direct influence on his life – musically and personally.

A Taste of Thomson has enjoyed four successful seasons over the years at The Heritage Theatre, and fills in for the current show, Johnny Be Good on this Friday and Saturday night. Barry performs with his long-time ace team of Dawn Selby (keyboards and vocals), Mali Sewell (drums) and Jason Andrew (bass) to showcase the music of a wide range of unforgettable artists.

"I have chosen songs that are instantly recognisable hits and some that are not … but they all have musical or lyrical worth. The audience, hopefully, gets a chance to know a little more about me, and even my own compositions,” says Barry.

Barry’s musical menu includes songs from Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Gary Moore, Dire Straits, Grand Funk Railroad and Deep Purple. The show also features some of Barry’s original songs including Take It in My Stride and Walk a Mile.

As there are limited tickets available, early booking is advised. Bookings can be made on 031 765 4197 or online at
