Showman supreme and piano virtuoso, Ian von Memerty, presents his charming one-man show Keyboard Killers at the Hilton Arts Festival this weekend (September 15 to 17).

Ian von Memerty - South Africa’s Prince of the Piano stars in a musical extravaganza. After its hugely successful national tour in 2016, Ian brings you Eight of the Great: Freddy Mercury, Fats Waller, Billy Joel, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Stevie Wonder, John Legend and Noel Coward.

With the dynamic Devon van Rooyen on percussion and cool cat Andrew Warneke on bass you will feast your ears on some of the world’s best music: from the swinging sass of Anything Goes to the showbiz sizzle of Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better; from a show-stopping Bohemian Rhapsody to a soul-searing Glory, you are in for a treat of complete entertainment by a complete entertainer. Mrs Worthington will never be the same again.

Tears of laughter, tears of love, and of joy will flow as you revel in the pianistic pyrotechnics and vocal power of a uniquely versatile artist paying tribute to some of the greatest musical creators ever.

Rave reviews and nightly standing ovations mean that you do not want to miss this magical musical event. Performances take place on Saturday at 15h45 and Sunday at 15h30.

This production has been specifically scheduled so that people who hate driving at night can still see it.
