SA Tattoo at Montecasino
20 June 2012 | The Citizen
Now in its fourth consecutive year, the SA Tattoo has thrilled more than 70 000 people, selling out at every show since its launch in 2008. It’s the hottest ticket in town!
The increasing popularity among makes this year’s 90-minute, open-air spectacular event the biggest SA Tattoo ever staged.
With its largest cast to date, comprising over 800 multi-cultural and multi-national performers, the SA Tattoo is diverse mass entertainment on a scale rarely seen in SA.
“The South African Tattoo is so much more than mass entertainment. It is a showcase of strength, discipline, morale and unity.
When you combine strength in numbers, discipline through precision, morale from music and unity for a common cause, anything is possible,” says Simon Carter, executive producer of the SA Tattoo.
The soloists for this year’s finale will be talented singer, theatre and television actress, Siyasanga Papu and popular local recording artist, music writer and producer, theatre performer and local television and movie star, Vaughan Gardiner.
The duo will not only bring glamour and excitement to the Tattoo but also show their vocal prowess to the audience as they close the 2012 event.
The Tattoo brings a new, never-seen-before combination of South African and international acts. Top international performers such as the Talentholdet Gym Team from Denmark and the O’Shea Ryan Irish Dancers from Australia, perform alongside our finest local talent to present an array of wonderful singers, dancers and performers from across the globe.
The Amazing Skipping Routine, the SA Air Force and SA Medical HealthService bands, the Anavarata Dance Institute’s traditional Indian dancers, the Afrikaanse Hoër Meisies and Seunskool massed choir as well as acclaimed soloists Siyasanga Papu and Vaughan Gardiner will all take part in this year’s Tattoo.
Traditional favourites, the 180-piece massed pipes and drums and the contingent of over 80 Highland and Irish dancers, as well as the giant 27 metre x 18 metre South African flag, will be back again this year. The prestigious role of the lead Pipe Band for the 2012 SA Tattoo has been reserved for the Transvaal Scottish Regimental Pipes and Drums in honour of the Transvaal Scottish Regiment celebrating their 110th Anniversary this year.
