(Dan Patlansky)

While many may rush to book for his latest show because of its title Dan Patlansky … Stripped!, let it be known that this supremely talented musician will not be appearing in the nude. The title refers to the fact that he is currently on an entirely stripped-down acoustic tour of South Africa. 

The idea for an acoustic tour was informed by Patlansky’s fans. When he recently posted on Facebook that he might like to do an acoustic tour, the overwhelmingly positive response from his loyal fanbase made him decide to get the wheels rolling. 

Patlansky will be accompanied by his compatriots, Andy Maritz (drums/percussion) and Clint Falconer (bass). 

“I am really looking forward to this tour – it’s something that the fans have asked for directly and it’s always great to give the fans what they want. The opportunity to spend time with fans from all over the country makes it even better,” he said at the outset of the tour. His latest album, 20 Stones, has been hailed as a critical triumph and is currently available at music outlets.  

Dan Patlansky appears at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway on September 24 (Heritage Day). Doors open at 18h30 and the show starts at 20h00. Tickets R120 booked on 031 566 3045 or email: 

Patlansky then moves to La Montagne Resort in Ballito where he will appear at The Pumpkin Theatre. Doors open at 18h30 with the show starting at 20h00. Tickets R140 booked through 082 652 9508 or email:
