Steve Hofmeyr will  perform two shows at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway on May 23 and 24. After four sold out shows at the venue last year, this iconic Afrikaans signer will return to perform his greatest hits based on his latest 42-track album, 25 Jaar Se Beste.

Released in November 2012, Hofmeyr’s two-disc greatest hits album has made the country sit up with memories rekindled, thanks to great original songwriting and melodies that only he can deliver. Many of his songs have become part of the rich and varied landscape of Afrikaans and English pop culture ever since his music career began back in 1987.

A drama graduate, successfully published author, television personality, actor and social media commentator, Hofmeyr has always been fiercely focused on telling stories, through music, that talk to those culturally curious, or simply looking to tap their way through three-and-a-half-minutes worth of fun. “We fragment the moment,” he says. “My songs show something of the dynamic of Afrikaans, and the beauty of culture is that it cannot be regulated.”

Durban audiences can expect to hear his biggest hits, including Laaste Lag, Agter Elke Man, Ek Ken Jou Soms, Kyk Hoe Lyk Ons Nou, Die Bloubul, Pampoen, FM Stereo and Juliet.

Steve Hofmeyr performs on May 23 and 24 at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway. Tickets R160 pp and seating will be as for normal shows, with no standing room. Audience members can also meet the artist in the bar after the show to buy paraphernalia and get autographs. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045 or visit
