Jorge Ferreira set to pack-out The Big Top Arena for live shows

A capacity crowd is expected at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena when Portugal’s biggest, most-popular recording artist, Jorge Ferreira performs there as part of the much-anticipated Portuguese food and culture festival, A Festa Portuguesa, in September.

With only two shows – one at 19h00 on Friday 26 September and the second at 13h00 on Saturday 27 September – fans of this internationally-acclaimed star are urged to book their tickets sooner rather than later. Tickets, available via Computicket, cost between R300 and R600 each. This includes entrance to A Festa Portuguesa on the same day as the concert.

Farreira fans look forward to hearing all of his biggest hits and memories, spanning his illustrious career. With more than four decades in music and in excess of 6-million albums sold, Ferreira draws massive audiences when he performs live.

“We are excited to host Portuguese mega-star, Jorge Ferreira on our stage for the first time in September. This is a spectacular treat for his local fans who may otherwise not get the opportunity to see him perform live. It is not every day that a star of his international acclaim comes to Carnival City. Buoyed by his immense popularity with the local Portuguese community, we are thrilled to have secured him for two shows in order to accommodate as many people as possible,” says Carnival City’s Entertainment Manager, Jaco Saaiman.

Ferreira’s concerts are just two of the many highlights of the five-day Portuguese cultural extravaganza. Carnival City will come alive with the sights, sounds and aromas of Portugal during A Festa Portuguesa, taking place on the grounds from Tuesday 23rd to Sunday 28th September 2014.

The family-styled festival will feature authentic Portuguese cuisine, live entertainment, activities for children, give-aways, and exhibitions. With gorgeous food, great music, fun, and numerous stalls to peruse, A Festa Portuguesa appeals not only to the members of the Portuguese community, but anyone who enjoys quality entertainment and taste experiences.
