He’s legendary. He’s an international superstar. He’s given South African music a voice. And his musical journey is coming to an end
Nearly forty years after he began one of music’s most remarkable careers, Johnny Clegg announced on the 947 Breakfast Club that he is embarking on his final world tour aptly titled, The Final Journey.
This will be my final set of public performances for my fans in SA and around the world. I am immensely excited to be able to bring to them an autobiographical, audio-visual and intimate account of my life through my music and dance.— Johnny Clegg
