Music of legendary metal pioneers heard in U’hage

2015-04-30 06:00

Loved by young and old for their heavy but melodic style of music, Metallica are considered pioneers of modern metal music. Some of their best hits will be played tomorrow evening in Uitenhage by top musicians.

Rockface Productions and Eastern Cape Motors will proudly present the Rockface showband performing the music of Metallica.

Metallica produced hits such as Enter sandman, Nothing else matters, For whom the bell tolls, The unforgiven and Whiskey in the jar to name but a few.

Fronting the band is Francois Hugo, a professional singer of many years’ standing.

He has played in some top national rock bands and has done many tribute shows, including most of the songs in the Metallica catalogue.

On lead guitar is Jethro Butow, a legend in the music business. He is arguably the top rock guitarist this country has ever produced and was inducted into the SA Rock Hall of Fame two years ago.

Backing him on guitar is a young player with heaps of talent, Arno Erasmus. The rhythm section consists of two of the country’s top professionals, Deon Mattheus on bass and his brother Kevin on drums.

The show at Danskraal in Uitenhage starts tomorrow evening at 21:00 with Pink Lippz as the supporting act playing from 20:00.

Rockface will also perform at Poolcity Walmer on Saturday with Written in Scarlett starting at 20:00, Pink Lippz at 21:00 and the main band at 22:00.
