Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour

Koerner Hall
Tickets start at only $55

Nearly forty years after he began one of music’s most remarkable careers, Johnny Clegg is embarking on his final world tour. Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour represents the peak of a career that has combined near matchless music success with sustained — and significant — social, political and cultural impact.

Clegg was diagnosed with cancer in 2015. He is currently finishing a new album and his autobiography. As he is in remission, Johnny has decided to use this opportunity to perform a final set of concerts to thank his fans for their support over the 35 year long journey that spans his career.

Through his bands Juluka and Savuka, Clegg pioneered a uniquely South African hybrid music during a time of cultural and racial segregation. His music always offered a vision of how South Africans could find each other and the possibilities of a non-racial future. Clegg’s recorded output as part of Juluka, Savuka, and solo, has earned him millions of record sales, countless awards and nominations (including a Grammy nomination) and multiple international releases, all eagerly consumed by a truly global audience. The concert is built around Clegg’s unparalleled repertoire of songs, from the release of Juluka’s Universal Men in 1979 through the Savuka years and his more recent solo work.
“Johnny Clegg is more than just one of this country’s finest musicians and entertainers. He is a national treasure who has brought together all South Africans and reminded us of what makes us great as a country.” — Cyril Ramaphosa.
