He’s been called fabulous, flamboyant and funny. Also a madcap, a perfectionist and a workaholic. And he’s all our own.
Nataniël launched his solo career on 1 March 1987 with the release of his first single, Maybe Time. Over the next 30 years, he has built a career unlike anything seen before in South African entertainment.
He has given more than 6000 live performances, written and staged 79 stage productions, released 17 albums and six DVDs, published 17 books and filmed three highly popular TV series. He has also established himself as entrepreneur, public speaker, columnist and philanthropist.
To celebrate three decades on stage, Nataniël will present his latest creation, 30 years, 90 minutes nationwide over a period of eight months. The show will feature favourite highlights from the past 30 years as well as a collection of new songs and stories in both English and Afrikaans.
Nataniël will share the stage with Charl du Plessis (piano), Juan Oosthuizen (guitar), Werner Spies (bass) and Hugo Radyn (drums). His spectacular wardrobe is designed by Floris Louw.
30 years, 90 minutes kicks off on the Artscape stage where Nataniël has enjoyed some of his earliest successes, including Dancing with John, White Soul and My Brother Fonzo. A luxury souvenir programme will be sold at the shows.
