It came as a shock to many when the closure of the Ticketpro Dome was announced in mid-July. Situated in the north-west of Johannesburg, the Dome saw hundreds of thousands of patrons walk through its doors over the years and welcomed international acts from around the world, including stars like Katy Perry, Celine Dion and Lionel Richie.

And, of course, we cannot forget Cassper Nyovest's incredible Fill Up the Dome concert.
