Joe Cocker in SA

2007-12-21 00:00

Grammy award-winner Joe Cocker will be bringing his critically acclaimed World Tour to South Africa in February next year, performing in Durban at the International Convention Centre on February 29.

The rock and soul singer last performed sold-out shows in South Africa in 1994 and is “very excited” to be returning.

He heads to the country following a sold-out European tour, and a string of highly anticipated Australia and New Zealand dates.

Cocker is best known for his unique gravelly voice. The Sheffield-born singer’s long and illustrious career has seen him undergo a major career rebirth since his rise to stardom in the late sixties.

He has long been renowned for his exceptionally soulful growl and electrifying live performances. Fans can look forward to him belting out vintage hits from across his repertoire including A Little Help from My Friends, Unchain My Heart, You Are So Beautiful, You Can Leave Your Hat On and Up Where We Belong.

Tickets are available from Computicket at 083 915 8000, or log on to, and at outlets countrywide.

Tour itinerary:

February 26: Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Town (Tickets R385).

February 29: Indoor Arena, International Convention Centre, Durban (Tickets from R225).

March 1: The Big Top Arena, Carnival City Casino, East Rand (Tickets from R400 to R500).
