Namibia: Dan Patlansky's New Solo Acoustic Tour Hits Nam

Never far from like-minded genius, guitarist, singer-songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the blues, Dan Patlansky sidles into his second successive decade as one of the world's finest blues-based storytellers of his generation.

With each new release, Patlansky's albums brought with him a tighter and more engaging lyrical twist and even more interesting turns, all of which led beautifully to his much anticipated 2014 full electric album released in May.

Patlantsky virtually travelled the world and headlined major festivals including the Horsens Blues Festival in Denmark in 2013, Fjord Blues Festival in Norway in 2014.

His album 'Dear Silence Thieves' was voted the number one blues/rock album in the world by Blues Rock Review USA in 2014 and received raving reviews in European and international press for the album.

Patlantsky kicked off 2016 with his 'Sweet Home Africa Solo Acoustic Tour', followed by his 'Introvertigo' album launch tour in April in South Africa. In May 2016, Patlantsky performed as special guest on award-winning blues tock band, King King's nationwide UK tour, performing 26 shows over the course of May and June 2016 in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. Back in South Africa, he completed a nationwide solo acoustic tour.

Patlansky will be live at the Warehouse Theatre on Thursday, 21 September at 20h00. Opening the show will be Namibian-born singer-songwriter Riaan Smit, who is also known as the lead singer and guitarist of popular Cape Town blues rockers Crimson House. Advance tickets are available at EventsToday and Airtime City Kiosks countrywide. Tickets will also be available at the door.
