BULAWAYO — There was chaos at Amphitheatre gates on Friday night as revellers struggled to get into a show featuring South African musicians Patricia Majalisa, Dan Tshanda, Dalom Kids and Splash.

There were a few officials at the gates who seemed to be outnumbered by a heavily determined crowd. The show was organised by Whatever Music Promotions.

Whatever music promotions manager, Mandla Sibanda, attributed the chaos at the gates to the shortage of cashiers and poor security.
“The slowness of the cashier at the gate is what caused the problems that were experienced there,” he said.

“It was our fault we had hired one cashier to sell the tickets and in the end that wasn’t enough.Next time we will have a lot of people who will sell tickets at the gate.”

Sibanda urged local authorities to increase the amount of lighting around Amphitheatre in order to minimise crime adding that the venue was still the best place to host regional artists in Bulawayo.
During Majalisa’s performance a number of people who had failed to get into the auditorium started throwing stones and bottles into the venue.

The revellers retaliated and a few minutes of bottle and stone throwing followed.

In a classic act of an experienced performer Patricia Majalisa was able to woe back the attention of the audience and the show continued.

The much anticipated Dan Tshanda took to the stage at four in the morning graced in a red and black outfit he was much welcomed by the crowd.

He performed his hit song Lufuno and a song dedicated to his Zimbabwean fans which he performed twice due to overwhelming response.

Some revellers however expressed disappointment at the quality of sound system saying it was poor and that Peacock failed to perform due to too many breaks that wasted time.
