IAN von Memerty is currently touring South Africa and will be bringing his piano, singing and entertainment skills to Port Elizabeth with his latest show, “Keyboard Killers”.

Inspired by some piano greats, Ian von Memerty’s “Keyboard Killers” brings the magic of Freddy Mercury, John Legend, Cole Porter, Billy Joel, and many more to stages across the country.

“I wanted to write a show that is great entertainment and would really test my versatility as a pianist, singer and entertainer,” said Von Memerty.

The first production taking place in PE will be a fundraiser for The Igazi Foundation – a blood bank and cancer and bone marrow charity which operates out of local hospitals.

Von Memerty and his wife, Vivienne, have had three children, two of whom were diagnosed with Maroteaux–Lamy syndrome (or MPS 6), a genetic metabolic disease. Their oldest child, Valeska, lost her life to the disease at the tender age of five.

“The work of the charity obviously resonated with me, with my two children having had three bone marrow transplants between them,” he said about the fundraiser for The Igazi Foudation.

Von Memerty will be bringing his tour to PE from tonight, September 28 to October 1 at the Opera House.Tickets to the shows are available at Computicket from R120 to R150.– ANIKA DE BEER
