SHIRLEY BASSEY PULLS OUT OF MANDELA GIG AS MY SUN CITY CURSE LAY HER LOW!How do ‘SUN CITY SCUMBAGS’ QUEEN and SHIRLEY BASSEY GET TO PLAY MANDELA’S BIRTHDAY GIG?

I’ll ask this again since its a fucking disgrace – when you think of all those bands who actively opposed apartheid and the scumbags who broke sanctions to play SUN CITY get to play for Mandela! BOTTLE  THE FUCKERS OFFSTAGE! Both SHIRLEY BASSEY and QUEEN played SUN CITY during apartheid but they get chosen to play for Mandela!!

‘Queen embarked that year on a set of dates during their The Works Tour in Bophuthatswana, South Africa at the arena at Sun City.[30] Upon returning to England, they were the subject of outrage, having played there during the height of apartheid and in violation of worldwide divestment efforts. The band stated that they were playing music for fans in that country, and stressed that the concerts were played before integrated audiences. However, they have since been colloquially known as the “Sun City Rockers”, a term used in a disparaging sense to reflect how their actions were condemned as ‘hard to defend’ by many people’…………..WIKIPEDIA

Yes well what a top fucking choice…….perhaps EUGENE TERREBLANCHE could do a turn! Bassey has now pulled out through curse….er sorry…….illness!

    Could it be that the native South Africans don’t hold irrelevant grudges quite as long as white lefties on the other side of the world? No, surely that couldn’t be the answer…

    Surely if Nelson Mandela, who the gig is for after all, has forgiven and forgotten, then you can. The phrase ”get over it” springs to mind. For any younger readers out there, apartheid ended a long long time ago, about the same time that Freddie Mercury met his end too actually, spooky or what!

    Yeah Ian,…just get over the fact that these people broke a world wide ban on one of the most disgustingly racist regimes ever…And when Mandela said ‘the gig is for all’,do you think he might have ment for blacks and whites-not just the tossers who went to Sun City to see these clapped out money bags last time?…and just to keep winnie and shaw cross happy, since they’re in such a forgiving mood,why not invite a reformed Skrewdiver along to Sun City too,I mean,afterall,Ian Stuart ain’t in it anymore….fucking wankers…!

    Well said East ham dave, as well as having music as tasteless and overblown as this inflicted on poor Nelson Mandela on his birthday !

    @ East Ham Dave… I’ll look out for you throwing a bottle at a 70 year old welsh warbler then. Hilarious. I repeat, as you seem to have struggled the first time; if Mandela don’t give a fuck why should you? After all he suffered directly, whereas you were probably out smashing windows of German cars cos they bombed your chippy. Enjoy the gig, i will.

    I’m sure old nelson has forgiven. Lots more “native” south africans ( i guess you ment black ) however, still live in dire poverty and hardship. I bet they are well happy that nelson is now embracing bands and people that helped perpetuate a vile and repulsive regime. Very easy to say forgive and forget when a lovely new righteous cause becomes all fashionable and trendy but the struggle in sa is still very real for the majority.

    apartheid ended a long long time ago – Winnie

    A long, long time ago? What are you on about? It finished when I was four years old, I’m eighteen now, that’s not exactly very long ago by anyone’s standards.
