Durban audiences can brace themselves for 50 of the greatest songs of all time, all wrapped up in one slick production – 50 Carat Gold - which runs at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway from June 2.

The hits in 50 Carat Gold have accumulatively dominated the charts for the last 60 years, and the show aims to cover the important songs that have made an impact on our lives in this time.

They cover it all … from arguably the greatest rock ’n roll song of all time, Blue Suede Shoes; the greatest rock anthems of all time like We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions and Don’t Stop Believing; the greatest modern pop songs from Katy Perry, Daft Punk and Rihanna; the greatest South African song of all time, Asibonanga by Johnny Clegg; the greatest Afrikaans song of all time, Los Lappie; the greatest duets of all time, including I Will Do Anything For Love by Meatloaf, and Endless Love by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross; and even the greatest classical song of all time by Beethoven, and the greatest saxophone song of all time, Baker Street.

The list goes on and on as 50 Carat Gold celebrates the glittering song moments that have made audiences rock out, cry and sing along to anthems that reverberate through the universe.

50 Carat Gold runs at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway from June 2 to July 19. Tickets R145 from Wednesday to Saturday (R110 every Tuesday night and R100 for the Sunday matinees). For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045 or visit
