Today is a first for Rite Studios... we are fortunate enough to have been invited by DKExperssions to capture the John Legend All Of Me Tour, at The Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg. Brought to you by Big Concerts & Publicity Work. We are excited to be here and can't wait to get shooting.
First up the beautiful and extremely talented Lulu Dikana. What an amazing and truly moving performance. Lulu has such a stage presence, what a personality and a set of vocal chords to match. Thoroughly enjoying ourselves tonight from next to the sound booth, right smack in the middle of the dome. Wish we could get closer to the action, but this is still fantastic from here we can really capture the essence of whats going on here tonight.
We got a chance to catch up with Dave Hammond from The Publicity Workshop, who gave us the low-down on what we can expect for the rest of the show. As we bring the interview to a close, the lights dim and we hear the crowd begin to roar. Sending shivers down our arms, the shrieks of excited fans drowns out everything else… It’s time!
On walks the John Legend and the crowd goes bonkers. Hysterical screaming and whistles fill the air. He’s totally calm, collected and cool as a cucumber. What an awesome night this is turning out to be.
The excitement in the air is nothing less then electric. The crowd knows that they’re in for the show of a life-time. And John does not disappoint, wow! What an incredible musician! His fingers roll across the keys of that piano like they’ve never left. What a brilliant spectacle, what a sight to see. What a privilege to be part of such an awesome show. Truly a remarkable experience!
As John Legend returns to the stage to perform his encore act, the song All of me, the crowd goes ballistic... and to make the evening even more special, our friend and colleague Dale Kopping of DKExpressions proposed to his lovely, now fiancé Robyn Bress. What a magical night, as we leave the Dome and head back to the car, the mood in the air is one of joy and elation. Girls signing and everybody laughing, a good time had by all I think. Thanks John, what a Legend!
