(Jonothan Didlick)

Durban’s home-grown, Jonothan Didlick, returns to Durban after a year-long contract with The Barnyard Theatre and Sun City to present a selection of songs by one of his favourite and most influential performers, Michael Bublé.

Michael Steven Bublé; born September 9, 1975, is a Canadian singer. He has won several awards, including three Grammy Awards and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Just as Bublé has been influenced by his grandfather’s musical preference, Jonothan quotes as his influence, his father, John Didlick, of The Gee-Jays, as his musical inspiration.

Jonothan has performed in numerous shows at The Heritage Theatre including Johnny Be Good, In the Summertime, Come Fly with Me, Let’s Party, the award winning King and Queen, (set for a return to the Heritage stage in February and March of 2012), Who’s your Daddy, Rock Legends 2, as well as appearances in Let’s hear it for the Boys, Let’s Twist Again and Blondes on Deck at uShaka’s Upper Deck.

“While my peers were listening to the popular groups and singers of the 90’s and 2000’s, I was dabbling into the genius and harmonies of the likes of The Beatles and Queen and the big band swing sound of the then, up-and-coming, Michael Bublé.” he says.

Jonothan is joined on stage by three young and leggy ladies, to add the glitz and glamour to the laid-back atmosphere that is evident at Bublé’s Vegas-styled stage appearances.

Audiences can expect to hear classic hit songs like Feelin’ Good, Sway, Come Fly with Me, Mack the Knife, Save the Last Dance for Me, For Once in my Life, Crazy little Thing called Love and Everything, plus many more favourites.

Don’t Burst My Bublé runs at The Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest for a short one-week season from January 24 to 29. Ticket R190 pp Wednesday to Saturdays (R165 pp Tuesday evenings and Sunday lunch time) include a good quality two-course meal. A non-dining, “show only” option is also offered at R100 pp
