ROCKFACE showband will be performing the music of Metallica at Die Danskraal in Uitenhage on Friday, May 1, and at Poolcity, Walmer, on Saturday, May 2.
The showband, which has some of the countryâ€™s top musicians, is presented by Rockface productions and Eastern Cape Motors.
Organisers say the audience will enjoy all the Metallica hits such as Enter sandman, Nothing else matters, For whom the bell tolls, The unforgiven and Whiskey in the jar.
Metallica, considered pioneers of modern metal music, are loved by young and old for their heavy but melodic style of music.
Fronting the band is Francois Hugo, a professional singer of many years standing. He has played in some top South African rock bands and has done many tribute shows, including most of the songs in the Metallica catalogue.
On lead guitar is Jethro Butow, a legend in the music business. He is arguably the top rock guitarist this country has ever produced.
He was inducted into the SA Rock hall of fame two years ago. Backing him up on guitar is a young player with heaps of talent, Arno Erasmus.
Hugo said, â€œArno is young and hungry and wants to learn from the experienced guys in the band. He has come to the right place.
The rhythm section consists of two of the countryâ€™s top professionals, Deon Mattheus on bass and his brother Kevin on drums. They are not called the A-team for nothing.â€?

The Poolcity show Written in Scarlett will start playing at 8pm, Pink Lippz will be on at 9pm and the main band at 10pm. For more information call Lynette on 083 650 8895
