As part of the “Bigger and Better” MTN Festival, which will take over the Teatro at Montecasino, MTN Joyous Celebration fans can expect a mouth-watering spectacle on the 29th and 30th of September 2012. It promises to be a nostalgic trip, re-visiting all the classics from Joyous One to the current scorching hot Joyous 16 with the energetic and super talented young cast!
Having just completed an exhilarating tour of the coastline, the multi-award winning gospel ensemble returns to Gauteng to indulge and honour their fans by paying homage with the most loved songs over the years with a concept called Rewind: A celebration of Joyous hits.
The memorable weekend will be filled with astounding music when some former members of the ensemble who have contributed tremendously to the groups’ success join in on the Praise and Worship.
Co-founding member Lindelani Mkhize says, “We always enjoy taking the trip down memory lane with our fans by performing all their favourites from the Joyous catalogue, we present it in a special way without losing the essence of Joyous”
This platform has been made possible by the groups’ title sponsor, MTN, during the MTN Festival which is currently running at Montecasino. The Festival’s non-stop entertainment offerings also include Mega Move discounts at the NuMetro Cinema at Montecasino every Tuesday until 9 October, weekday Mega Meal restaurant specials and promotions at participating tenants for the duration of the festival, glittering gaming opportunities, a free Classic Movies on the Piazza screening of E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial and Dirty Dancing, and a fun-filled Magical Kidsland at Montecasino weekend, plus several major lifestyle events that present an unsurpassed mix of entertainment, exhilaration and enjoyment, all in a safe and secure environment.
“As the proud sponsor of the MTN Festival and Joyous Celebration, it was befitting for the country’s most celebrated gospel ensemble be included in the MTN Festival as the musical line-up offers a celebration of world class performances” Serame Taukobong, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN SA. “The two events taking place during the MTN Festival promise to captivate audiences with their lyrical talent and connect the audience to some of South Africa’s most celebrated musicians”
Pulling out all the stops to make this a memorable weekend, MTN Joyous Celebration is poised to present an unforgettable 2-day concert for their fans.
“For this show, the iconic brand stays true to itself in terms of the presentation and production style. However we do add more theatre and drama with the costumes, lighting, choreography and general ambience, it will have the crowds on their feet completely blown away!” adds Mkhize.
