The Baxter Theatre is delighted to launch an exciting new series of outdoor concerts, called Sun-Set@Baxter.

To herald in the summer, we are delighted to launch an exciting new series of outdoor concerts, called Sun-Set@Baxter, in our beautiful garden! The series kicks off with SAMA-nominated artist, Majozi, this Sunday, 28 November, followed by Matthew Mole on 19 December and Zolani Mahola, The One Who Sings, on 30 January next year. As a Black Friday Special, tickets for Majozi are now available for R150 per ticket, limited to the first 50 tickets bought.

This spectacular line-up of top South African artists performing on The Baxter’s lawns is the perfect summer experience for the entire family to enjoy, so bring your outdoor blankets, cushions, and picnic baskets, while enjoying sensational music. Four different picnic basket options with or without wine can be purchased when you buy tickets online. Only alcohol purchased from The Baxter’s bar (or via Webtickets) will be allowed.

Having won the South African Music Award for pop album of the year with his third album Ghost (2019), Matthew Mole is well versed in using multiple instruments to create his hits, all of which he plays himself. His approach is to start with a melody or lyrical idea and then fill it out by recording various instruments into his works.

His latest hit, I’m with you, an indie-pop gem is a testament to why his fans have come to appreciate his eclectic approach to love songs and music in general. With a massive European tour on the cards in 2022, this will be a special treat for Cape Town audiences to catch this pop sensation before Mole jets off to expand his career among his European fanbase.

Zolani Mahola, who now goes as The One Who Sings, will perform songs from her recently released debut solo album, Thetha Mama, on 30 January 2022 at 6 pm. She is no stranger to The Baxter’s stage where, in 2019, she launched her solo career by writing and performing in her one-woman show The One Who Sings, which won her the prestigious Fleur du Cap award for Best Actress in a Musical. In 2020 she performed with Gregory Maqoma in Baxter Back on Stage.

Storyteller, the soulful singer, award-winning actress, and inspirational icon, The One Who Sings, is well-loved and respected by South Africans for unifying the country through music and bridging social, racial, and cultural divides.
