Randy Crawford has had a longstanding love affair with South African audiences and now she is coming back to Cape Town and Pretoria one last time as part of her Farewell Tour. 

Randy first made her name in mid 1970s in New York where she sang with jazzmen George Benson and Cannonball Adderley. 

She signed with Columbia Records and released her first single, Knock On Wood and If You Say The Word in 1972. She went on to lead R&B veterans the Crusaders on the transatlantic hit Street Life (1979) and was named the ‘Most Outstanding Performer’ at the Tokyo Music Festival.

Her follow –up solo efforts included One Day I’ll Fly Away (1980) and You Might Need Somebody (1981), which became soul standards. The album, Secret Combination (1981) stayed on the UK Albums Chart for sixty weeks. She has sung with Bootsy Collins, Johnny Bristol, Quincy Jones, Al Jarreau, Rick Springfield, Steve Hackett and Joe Sample among others.

Chairman of Big Concerts Attie Van Wyk commented; "Randy is still one of the greatest female voices and we feel proud and privileged to be presenting her final concert tour in South Africa prior to her retirement".

Don’t miss this last opportunity to see Randy Crawford, performing all her hits on her farewell tour.
