Go behind the scenes with Lira

2011-10-07 00:00

LIRA fans in KwaZulu-Natal, get ready — your idol is headed to Durban to perform at the International Convention Centre (ICC) on October 22 at 8 pm.

The gig is one of several which make up the South African leg of her global The Captured Tour, in association with Nokia.

Lira, who performed on the South African Idols finale on Tuesday, has spent the last few months touring the planet in support of launching her international career and debut offering for the European and North American territories.

During the tour, South African fans can expect to hear songs from all Lira’s albums, new arrangements and additions to her classics, and a few performance collaborations with South African greats, that are sure to captivate both new and old fans alike.

The tour culminates with a DVD recording at the Sun City Superbowl on October 29, during which Idols winner, Dave van Vuuren, will perform.

“We are making this the biggest DVD production ever captured on African soil,” says Robin Kohl, DVD production head and manager. “We’re taking what we did in 2009 and doubling the scale — we are also capturing Lira’s performances through the eyes of fans at each and every destination, throughout the tour.

“Fans will be part of a truly­ ­interactive capturing process, with our ­roving camera team in each venue. We will find “super fans” in each city who will be given tasks to film Lira, ­backstage happenings and gain an all­-access experience as to what goes on behind the scenes in Lira’s world. This is the most powerful experience we have been able to offer fans, and it is the very concept behind this tour.”

Tickets for The Captured Tour are available country wide from Compu­ticket, priced from R130.
