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. 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!
