Katy Perry coming to South Africa for the first time ever!

By News24 24 January 2018

Johannesburg - In the wake of her North American tour’s stellar reviews and added concerts, Katy Perry has announced that she will be performing in South Africa for the very first time as part of WITNESS: The Tour .

Produced by Big Concerts, Katy Perry will visit Johannesburg on 18 and 20 July 2018 at the Ticketpro Dome.

Tickets go on sale at 09:00 on 26 January 2018 via www.bigconcerts.co.za.

Discovery Card holders get an exclusive 48-hour presale from 24 January 2018 at 09:00. Go to www.discovery.co.za for more information.

With Witness , Katy finds liberation, in the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that inspire both thought and movement.

The singles released thus far – the Platinum-certified Chained to the Rhythm featuring Skip Marley, and the singles, Bon Appétit featuring Migos and Swish Swish featuring Nicki Minaj – hint at the breadth of the musical and thematic elements found on Witness.

WITNESS: The Tour is an imaginative trip from outer-space to inner-space, from the planets to the bottom of our oceans, and a musical journey through Katy Perry’s biggest milestones and mega-hits right up to her latest album.

The dramatically original staging means that there isn’t a bad seat in the house, when Katy brings out her band and dancers, along with all the bells and whistles.

TICKET DETAILS:

WHERE: Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg

WHEN: Wednesday 18 July and Friday 20 July 2018.

No, not really. But now that we have your attention, we wanted to tell you a little bit about what happened at SARS.

Tom Moyane and his cronies bequeathed South Africa with a R48-billion tax shortfall, as of February 2018. It's the only thing that grew under Moyane's tenure... the year before, the hole had been R30.7-billion. And to fund those shortfalls, you know who has to cough up? You - the South African taxpayer.

It was the sterling work of a team of investigative journalists, Scorpio’s Pauli van Wyk and Marianne Thamm along with our great friends at amaBhungane, that caused the SARS capturers to be finally flushed out of the system. Moyane, Makwakwa… the lot of them... gone.

But our job is not yet done. We need more readers to become Maverick Insiders, the friends who will help ensure that many more investigations will come.

So, if you feel so inclined, and would like a way to support the cause, please join our community of Maverick Insiders.... you could view it as the opposite of a sin tax.

The battle for the future of South Africa is on, and you can be part of it.
