(Barry Thomson)

Barry Thomson’s new solo acoustic show titled Times Like These reflects on past and present personal experiences. Back by public demand, it will run at Rhumbelow Tina’s in Kloof from November 15 to 17, 2019.

The show content is largely based on finding the light in the darkness, finding a peaceful happy place in the midst of today’s mad world. Songs have been carefully chosen to tell stories which everyone can relate to … ‘sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug’.

Also featured will be stripped-down acoustic versions of popular hit songs from The Reals’ tribute shows including Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, James Taylor, Rodriguez, The Eagles, Jethro Tull, John Mayer, Jackson Browne and Neil Diamond.

The songs will touch your heart and get your foot tapping!

Shows take place on November 15 and 16 at 20h00 and on November 17 at 14h00. (The theatre venue opens 60 minutes before show for drinks)

Tickets R150 (R130 pensioners) and tables seat 8. (No alcohol or food may be brought on to the premises). Tickets are cash or EFT only. Secure parking is available. Booking is through Computicket or contact Roland (also for large group booking discounts of 20 or more) on 082 499 8636 or email: or visit
