The Magnificent 7 are set to ride again as Centrestage presents a brand new take on their immensely popular hit tribute to 7 of the greatest bands of all time.

The best in music and comedy will combine with Gino Fabbri playing a series of hilarious linking characters in between proceedings, some new musicians in the lineup, some different song selections and a few different bands in the mix too.

With Wayne Kallis in the musical directors chair, this new rocking jamboree promises as much fun and excitement as the original smash hit production, which was seen by over 100 000 people!

Roxette, Fleetwood Mac and Smokie are the new-comers to the esteemed lineup, joining The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Abba and Queen to complete the 7 band lineup.

The Centrestage All-Star Band re-invents itself 7 times over the course of the evening to present an authentic, high-energy, harmony filled interpretation of each of the individual performance styles of the bands, complete with changing costumes and audio-visual backdrops for each segment.

The exact sounds and arrangements of the original songs will recreate the experience as if you were to see these sixties, seventies and eighties bands live on stage today.

Throw the hilarious comedy of Gino Fabbri into the mix and you have a winning recipe for a show which just cannot be missed - Fabbri will play an alien space anthropologist and body snatcher from the future, who takes over the bodies of a variety of victims to try to understand how this pivotal music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, affected the development of our culture.

New songs in the show which join the old favourites include The Beatles’s I Saw Her Standing There, I Want to Hold Your Hand and Twist and Shout, Fleetwood Mac’s Go Your Own Way, Second Hand News, Don’t Stop and Tusk, Abba’s Ring Ring, Waterloo and Gimme Gimme, Queen’s Under Pressure, Roxette’s The Look, How Do You Do and Dressed for Success, Smokie’s Oh Carol, You Think You Know How to Love Me, Alice, Needles and Pins and Stumbling in.

Donna Africa and Eloise Potgieter are the fronting females and backing vocalists for the show, Pieter Kruger is on bass, Alan Kozak on lead guitar, Russel Snead on drums, with Khanya Matomela on keyboards. Neil Thompson also plays various instruments in the show.

So if 7 is your lucky number, then whatever you do – be there to see the 7 wonders of the musical world with a celebration which is without question The Best of the Best, by the best!
