The Black Lapels to pay tribute to ‘The Boss’ at the Barnyard Theatre, Gateway


Durban-based band, The Black Lapels, are heading back to The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway in Umhlanga to perform their brand-new tribute to Bruce Springsteen, The Boss Sessions, on Monday, November 15 and Tuesday, November 14.

After sell-out tributes to Johnny Cash last year and Creedence Clearwater Revival at the venue earlier this year, Rob and Garth Warren, Gareth Gale, Luke Wyngaard, David Langley and Gary Nixon, will take audiences through a retrospective catalogue of poetic lyrics, Americana and a blistering selection of commercially accessible working-class rock.

Starting with Springsteen and the E Street Band’s break-through album Born To Run, The Black Lapels build an unforgettable performance over two 40-minute sets that traverses through a landscape of true Springsteen classics.

This is an interesting journey when one considers that it covers a catalogue that boasts 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Oscar.

So slide into your iconic white rolled-up short sleeve t-shirt, trusted blue denim jeans, stash that bandana in the back pocket and join the guys for an evening that was born to rock!

The theatre will open at 6.30 pm and the shows will start at 8pm. Tickets are R150 per person, and seating will be as for normal shows, with no standing room. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045 or visit
