The Black Lapels return to the Hexagon Theatre after their sell-out CCR performance in 2016. Armed with a gifted skill set in the form of Rob and Garth Warren, Chris Melling, Luke Wyngaard, and introducing guitarist and vocalist Gary Nixon, the Bruce Springsteen tribute show will work its magic transporting audiences through a retrospective catalogue of poetic lyrics, Americana and a blistering selection of commercially accessible working class rock.

Starting with Springsteen and the E street bands breakthrough album Born to Run, the Black Lapels build an unforgettable performance over two 40-minute sets that traverse a landscape of true Springsteen classics. An interesting journey when one considers a catalogue that boasts 20 Grammy awards, two Golden Globes and an Oscar.

A Tribute To Bruce Springsteen has two performances only – July 21 and 22 - at 19h30 at the Hexagon Theatre on the University of KwaZulu-Natal Pietermaritzburg campus. Tickets R125 at Webtickets
