Since their run-away success tribute shows, Johnny Cash, Memphis 55 and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pop Up Show are performing a production that will not only have audiences reminiscing but also singing along to the remarkable work of Paul Simon.

The show is their most challenging task to date and is a “stripped down” production based on Paul Simons’ road to Graceland. There will be performances at the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg on June 29 and 30, 2018.

Rob and Garth Warren (The Black Lapels) together with the sensational “stick man” Gareth Gale and the enigmatic Rusty Red on lead guitars step away from their traditional use of electric content and instead, strip their rock n roll spurs out for a more purist acoustic singer songwriter approach.

For the Paul Simon fans out there, a set list with those “favourites” awaits from “Graceland” to “You can call me Al” not excluding a string of other all timers like “Homeless”, “The Boxer”, “Gumboots”, “Diamonds on the Sole”… and then the brilliance of “Mother and Child Reunion”, each beautifully polished and delicately delivered.

Catch this show on June 29 or 30 at 19h30 at The Hexagon Theatre on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus. Tickets R135 from Webtickets -
