From Purple Rain to November Rain

Renowned South African guitarist and rock music aficionado, Nic Rush, will pay homage to some of the most memorable guitar anthems in a spectacular musical showcase, Six String Stories, at Carnival City’s Mardi Gras Theatre on August 26.

Six String Stories recounts the history of electric guitar-based music, kicking off with music from the early days of bluesman Robert Johnson, hurtling through the ’60s rock sounds of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Santana, stadium ’80s radio rock by Dire Straits, Prince and Van Halen and into the more modern anthems of Nirvana and Guns ‘n Roses.

From Purple Rain to November Rain, fans will be taken on an electrifying journey of timeless guitar hits by some of the world’s most legendary artists.

The show will also feature the voices of Josh Ansley and Jacqueline Tolken.

Michelle Smith, marketing manager at Carnival City says: “We are thrilled to provide the stage for the esteemed Nic Rush and up-and-coming talent Josh Ansley, as they pay tribute to evergreen guitar hits.

“This is world-class entertainment by two exceptionally talented South Africans.”

Commenting on the production, Rush says: “The history of the electric guitar in popular music is incredible.

“In Six String Stories we tell the story of the guitar by playing some of the biggest guitar songs of all time.

“Their riffs and melodies are instantly recognisable and helped bands like Van Halen and The White Stripes sell millions of albums.”
