Adding a splash of vibrant colour to The Boardwalk’s winter entertainment lineup is South African pop idol, Elvis Blue. He performs live in a one night only show on Youth Day (16 June 2017) at the Boardwalk Amphitheatre at 20h00. A capacity crowd is expected for the show in which Elvis Blue will perform some of the hits that have made him a household name over the years. Tickets cost R130 per person and are available at TicketPro. Pre-booking is advised.

“We are excited to welcome Elvis Blue to our stage in June. It promises to be an outstanding show, a real treat for his countless fans,” says Siphokazi, the PR and Promotions Manager at The Boardwalk.

For most South Africans, this star needs little introduction, having become a household name when he participated, and went on to win, the 2010 MNet SA Idols competition, sharing half the profit with runner-up Lloyd Cele. Since then, he has blazed a trail across the South African music industry, producing chart-topping songs like Things My Father Said, Lighthouse and Save Me, and performing to capacity crowds at music festivals and venues countrywide.

With an average of 133 live performances a year, three platinum albums, one gold selling album and a long list of top 10 hits to his credit, Elvis Blue is reckoned to be one of the most successful artists in South Africa. He remains a rare breed in his ability to straddle both English and Afrikaans music genres with ease and relevance. With his unique blend of charisma and authenticity his shows are known for not only the perfect blend of familiar favourites and new music, but also for his comical and often whimsical story telling that sweeps audiences along in a journey that is both personal and entertaining.

He is the first Afrikaans artist to scale the Top Ten of the iTunes Store chart -- and he cracked it on the very first day of the release of Afrikaans. Elvis’ multiple SAMA (South African Music Award) nominations over the years also highlight his talent as one of the most talented songwriters and performers in South Africa.
