Catch éVoid, the original band from the 80’s, direct from London as they undertake a South African tour on The Barnyard Theatre circuit. On August 26 at 20h00, they will once again bring down the house with hits like Shadows, Taximan and I Am A Fadget at the Gateway venue.

Some will remember dressing up as “fadgets” and queuing for hours outside the Chelsea Hotel in Hillbrow, while others may recall the Varsity Tour in 1984 when the floor caved in from everyone jumping up and down to Shadows at the Stellenbosch Town Hall.

The éVoid band members are reuniting to return to South Africa and the long-awaited tour celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Gold-selling debut album that launched their ethnotronic journey. Brothers Lucien and Erik Windrich will be joined by veteran musicians Johan Buys on bass and Mike Horne on drums, and they will be playing all of their oldies and much more!

The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway has established itself as a hugely popular live-music venue with many of South Africa’s top bands and performers. Part of the appeal of The Barnyard Theatre for live music is that it is an intimate venue with great sound and lighting. It also offers a laid-back environment where patrons are able to enjoy food and drinks before and during the show seated at tables and counters, especially making use of the weekend performances. Audience members can also meet the band in the bar after the show to buy paraphernalia and get autographs (remember to bring along your éVoid vinyl!).

éVoid will appear at the Barnyard, Gateway, on August 26 at 20h00. Tickets R180 pp and seating will be as for normal shows, with no standing room. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045 or visit
