Bigger and better in 2019

A musical concert by Namibia's greatest, aimed at sending away the Janu-worry blues.

01 February 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Big Ben, hailed as one of the top live performing artists in Namibia, is once again throwing a concert to welcome music lovers to 2019. The aim of the concert is to help keDezemba lovers forget their Janu-worry blues. The talented and versatile musician, who hosted his concert last year at the Warehouse Theatre, says this year's event will be different in many forms, making it bigger and better.

“It's a different year and people will be coming for different reasons too. Some will come because they have issues they want to forget just for the night whilst others will come just because they want to dance for the night,” he said.

Last year, due to limited space in the Warehouse Theatre, some fans who had bought tickets missed out. This year, he opted for a bigger venue, Zoo Park, which can accommodate more people. Another difference from last year's concert is him having comedian Slick the Dick to perform and MC the event, something rarely done at musical events.

“At some point we have to be able to collaborate across industries and be able to have designers, poets and actors at a concert instead of the many more artists.

“I have not yet tried this and I am very excited to cross-collaborate with Slick the Dick,” said Big Ben.

Other acts to be featured on the night are duo Ethnix who will share the stage with Big Ben, his legendary band and the latest addition his dancers, Selina Ashipala and Marshia Weendama.

Big Ben, who released his latest album titled 102, will also use this platform to officially launch it as well.

“The dream is to make the concerts a tradition at the beginning of every year. Namibians are hungry for entertainment every season of the year whether it is the beginning of the year or the end of it,” he said.

Tickets are selling for N$100 on Webtickets and for N$150 at the gate. The concert is on 2 March at Zoo Park.
