The Detroit oldest band The Temptations has arrived in the country for a concert which is expected to take place on Saturday at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC).
Speaking to reporters, the group’s band leader, Bernard Gibson, said they were pleased with the venue for the show.
“This place is different, the energy is different from other countries and it’s gonna be a high power show,” said Gibson.
On the issue of turnout, the band leader emphasised that those who will show up for the show they will surely enjoy the performance and for those who will not make it they will lose out.
On their part, the organisers of the concert African Global Travel and Tours made assurance that everything is in place and people should expect the best show ever.
“The Temptations are here, the concert is happening and its going to be the first of its kind,” said Francis Muleso, the African Global Travel and Tours CEO.
Muleso expressed satisfaction with the ticket sales as he indicated that most of the selling outlets have sold out all the tickets they were allocated.
He therefore indicated that the Jazz festival taking place the same day of the concert will never affect the turn out to the Temptations show.
Muleso further indicated that there is no competition between them and those organising the Jazz festival.
“We don’t see each other as competitors, in fact we have been working together and tomorrow Temptations will be at the Jazz festival but I should stress that they will not perform there,” said Muleso.
The band has brought along a South African Jazz band to perform with while in the country Patience Namadingo will be the supporting artist.
Namadingo said it is an honour to be considered as someone whose music appeals to a cross-section of audiences; both the young and the old.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
