DAN Patlansky will this month perform with his band for the first time in Namibia at the Warehouse Theatre in Windhoek. The blues rock show is a once in a lifetime event and not to be missed, organisers said.
The show is slated for Tuesday, September 27 commencing at 20h00.
Speaking to Confidente Warehouse Theatre co-owner Conny Pimenta confirmed that the blues rock star will be in Namibia.
“Dan will be coming to celebrate the official opening of The Loft, which is the Warehouse Theatre new bar. The Loft has been created to provide a sundowner spot for our business people and comfortable bar for our guests,”Conny said.
Ever since his debut album ‘Standing at the station’, followed by his 2004 major label ‘Masterstroke True Blues’, Patlansky has been immersing himself in the rich and rocking world of blues music.
In 2006 Fender a musical instruments corporation acknowledged his talent with a guitar and endorsed him, making him only one of six musicians on the continent to enjoy such a privilege. In December 2014, his offering ‘Dear silence thieves’ was voted the number one blues rock album in the world by Blues Rock review of the United States of America.
That same year Patlansky was chosen to open for Bruce Springsteen in front of 64 000 audience at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg. In March 2015, legendary guitarist Joe Satriani announced Patlansky as a special guest on his UK November 2015 tour.
The musician kicked off 2016 with his ‘Sweet Home Africa’ solo acoustic tour, followed by his ‘Introvertigo’ album launch tour in April in South Africa. In May 2016, Patlansky performed as a special guest on the award-winning blues rock band, KING KING’s nationwide UK tour.
Tickets for his upcoming Windhoek show are available at Events Today at a cost of N$150; and N$180 will be paid at the entrance.
