Bruce Springsteen Tribute - Centrestage

Wayne Kallis pays tribute to Bruce Springsteen with The Centrestage E Street Band

Wayne Kallis fronts the 7 piece Centrestage E-Street band to pay tribute to ‘The Boss’ Bruce Springsteen in a review entitled ‘USA on Fire!’.

The performance will take in some of Springsteen’s most popular hits such as ‘Dancing in the Dark’, ‘Born in the USA’, ‘I’m on Fire’, ‘Glory Days’, ‘Tougher than the Rest’, ‘Streets of Philadelphia’, ‘My Hometown;, ‘Cover Me’ and ‘Tougher than the Rest’, amongst others.

Included in the salute will be live concert favorites such as ‘Born to Run’, ‘The Rising’, ‘Badlands’, ‘The River’, ‘10th Avenue Freeze Out’, ‘Thunder Road’ and ‘No Surrender’.

The E-Street backing band consists of Arno Erasmus on lead guitar, Devon Van Rooyen on drums, Andrew Warneke on bass, Debbie Everaard on keyboards, Shawn Lyons on trumpet and Curtis Kettledas on sax.

Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, his working class and sometimes political sentiments centered on his native New Jersey, and his distinctive voice.

Springsteen's recordings have included both commercially accessible rock albums and more somber folk-oriented works.

His most successful studio albums, Born to Run (1975) and Born in the U.S.A. (1984), showcase a talent for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily American life.

He has sold more 120 million records worldwide and more than 64 million records in the United States, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time.

‘Wayne Kallis is a vocal dead ringer for Springsteen’, says long-time Springsteen fan and Centrestage’s Gary Hemmings.

‘This show has all the potential elements to become one of Centrestage’s most rocking live shows, as the Springsteen songbook is so packed with big production songs, as well as chart toppers …and the band, including a terrific horn section, plays this music so well!’

Shows start at 19h30 and tickets costing between R130 and R160 can be purchased through - Computicket Click Here, or by calling Wendy on 082-6616921
