ZIMBABWE-BORN musician Adrian Dzvuke, who is making waves in the musical world and going places, turned on a fine performance, before the biggest crowd to ever watch him in action, in his adopted hometown of Perth on Saturday night.
The 25-year-old, who left Zimbabwe to settle in Western Australia when he was 12, played before 67 000 fans.
It must be the biggest attendance, at a show featuring a Zimbabwe-born artist, in recent years.
An incredible nine tonnes of hot chips were reportedly shipped in to feed hungry fans at the concert.
A media outlet revealed on Saturday night that 500 kegs of beer, 35,000 cans of lager and 50,000 cans of ginger beer are available.
More than 8000 burgers are expected to be sold. Dzuke was chosen to be one of the opening acts for the opening show of super group Coldplay’s first show in Perth on Saturday night.
Coldplay are ranked as the biggest musical group in the world today and, for Dzvuke, to be part of the show, was a dream come true.
“Perth, the hometown love was unreal,” he posted on his social media platforms.
“Best way to wrap up the tour, thank you for being on this journey with me. Until we meet next time.”
The weather gods blessed Perth as Coldplay took to the stage on Saturday night.
The band served up a 22-song array of hits including Yellow, Paradise, The Scientist and Viva La Vida.
Support acts included Dzvuke, Thelma Plum and Amy Shark who helped warm up the crowd ahead of the quartet’s powerhouse concert.
If you couldn’t be at the concert on Saturday night, The West’s blog kept everyone up to date with all the action.
Lights were flashing, and fireworks and confetti was flying for ‘Sky Full of Stars’.
It looked like a starry night sky as the song went on. This will be the only time all 60,000 will be in the room at the same let’s share this moment together,” he said.
“Thank you for letting us come to Australia thank you for letting us come to WA,” Chris Martin said as he addressed the crowd.
“We did rehearsing for this show in Perth with 119 concerts so we should be almost up to your standard.”
