Lira fans are in for such a special and intimate affair when Bassline Live & Radio 2000 Present The Intimate Concert with LIRA live at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City on 06 July 2019.
The concert will include a selection of songs from all six albums, some classic fan favourites presented in a stripped down manner to create a sense of intimacy while sensitively including a fuller band presentation for certain other songs. There will also be a few surprises to delight the audience.
I’m really looking forward to giving Joburg audiences a special treat. Think acoustic or unplugged concert while building up to a full band experience, add a bit of talking to give the audience an intimate sense of what inspired some of my songs. And YES, a sneak preview of new material from my American album. We’re going to have some fun,” says Lira.
She also became one of the international experts invited to become judge on CBS’ new variety show called “The World’s Best” hosted by British comedian James Corden alongside American judges Drew Berrymore, Faith Hill and Ru Paul.
The year 2019 has been a busy year for LIRA who is the only coach and mentor to have lasted three seasons on South Africa’s version of the international hit music reality TV show, “The Voice.”
Songstress LIRA, whose music career spans 15 years and includes six studio albums, 3 live DVDs, an autobiography, a 7-part documentary TV series and a full feature movie; has established herself as one of the foremost female artists in South Africa and a formidable presence on the global music scene.
The Intimate Concert with LIRA is part of the Bassline Live Series, which has grown in popularity over the past few years. It has hosted the cream of the crop artists such as the late Zimbabwean legend Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi, The Soil, living legend Tsepo Tshola and most recently Simphiwe Dana’s Annual Congregation on 2 March 2019, which was a sterling affair filled with ardent fans who dressed to the nines and sang in unison to all of Simphiwe’s songs. Tickets to this intimate evening of music start from R250 and are available via Computicket. The show is brought to you by Radio 2000 in partnership with The Bassline Live Series.
