Bonnie Tyler fans can expect a Total Eclipse of the Heart when the electrifying Welsh songbird performs at The Cape Town International Convention Centre this weekend, 6 and 7 September 2013, the organisers, Afro Asia Management, said.
South Wales-born Tyler is the husky-voiced pop-rock diva behind hits such as Lost in France, It’s a Heartache and Holding out for a Hero, Total Eclipse of the Heart.
Her concerts mark the long-awaited return to South African stages, where she last performed 20 years ago. Having released a succession of irresistible classic songs in the 1970s and 1980s, the diva continues to occupy a special place in the hearts of many South Africans.
Born Gaynor Hopkins, she grew up surrounded by a large family, and exposed to Motown music at an early age. Tyler said she was particularly struck by the raw vocal power of two singers, Janis Joplin and Tina Turner, who would later have a huge influence on her singing style.
Reports said Tyler has been working on a new album titled Rocks and Honey, which is said to have a country-rock flavour.
The album is due to be released this year.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience one of the most powerful voices in pop-rock of modern times.
