13 August 2009

South African fans of the world renowned music group Starlight will have the rare opportunity to see this popular Portuguese boy band from the Acores Islands perform live for the first time in South Africa at Emperors Palace for two shows only on the 17 and 18 October.

Now based in Canada, the group has had a number of hit songs, including the old favourite "Cancao De Familia" and their latest release, the trendy "Um Desejo De Natal", which have had fans from all around the world sing along for many years. Although the group has released over ten albums in South Africa since the beginning of their illustrious music career, they will be serenading their South African fans at their first ever live performance in the country, to be staged at Emperors Palace.


The five member band is well known throughout the world, and is especially renowned for their "Bailinho Da Madeira" which is available on their latest album Reino das Criancas. The Bailinho is a traditional dance that resonates with many Portuguese, especially those emigrants that are living outside their homeland of Portugal, Madeira and the Acores Islands.  


While the group's fan base is mainly within the Portuguese community and it's Diaspora, music lovers across South Africa are encouraged to head over to Emperors Palace this October and move their bodies to the rhythmic sounds of the sensational Starlight. 


The Starlight concerts take place from 17 October - 18 October. Tickets start from R120 - R250 per person and can be bought through the Emperors Palace Box Office during office hours on 011 928 1297 or through Computicket on 083 915 8000 or
