Spend an Early Christmas With The Flying Pickets.

Spend an Early Christmas With The Flying Pickets.

The British pop-rock a capella vocal group, The Flying Pickets, will tour South Africa to perform their Christmas with The Flying Pickets show at Carnival City Big Top Arena on Friday, 22 November 2013. The group first enjoyed worldwide success with their debut single, a cover of a Yazoo song Only You in 1983. The single went straight to number one in the UK, and soon found popularity in other countries. This early success led the band to produce no less than 14 albums over the years. The Flying Pickets was founded by Brian Hibbard in 1982, together with a group of actors all with strong socialist political convictions.  They put together a musical theatre production that told the story of the 1982 miners strike in the UK, and their unusual name refers to mobile strikers of the time who would travel to join pickets in sympathy with the strikers. The group so enjoyed singing that they began to appear in pubs and clubs in London where they found success not only for their vocal ability, but also for their flamboyant appearance. Since those early days they have continued performing, recording and touring around the world. The show starts at 8pm and tickets are available from Computicket from R285 to R485. The damage is: EVENT Christmas with the Flying Pickets DATE Friday 22 November 2013 VENUE Carnival City – Big Top Arena TIME 20h00 TICKETS R285 to R485 BOOKING...
