AWARD-WINNING international carrier Ethiopian Airlines has thrown its weight behind The Greatest Hits Concert Tour featuring Zimbabwean music stars Oliver Mtukudzi and Suluman Chimbetu in the United Kingdom this weekend.

The hugely anticipated tour kicks off this Friday night in London at The Royal Regency with the duo being backed by their full bands, the Black Spirits and Orchestra Dendera Kings respectively.

Saturday evening will see the superstars staging the tour’s second and final show at Leicester’s Athena.

To add some magic to The Greatest Hits Concert Tour, proudly organised by Y2K Entertainment Promotions, fans will be able to request the Zimbabwean stars to perform their favourite songs – and they will gladly oblige!

Mtukudzi and his ensemble arrived in London on Wednesday from their North America and Caribbean tour while Chimbetu and his band arrived in London Thursday morning from Harare.

“Everything is on course for an awesome music weekend with visas and travel arrangements for all the touring artists in place. For the Leicester show, due to technicalities, we have moved from Maher Centre to Athena and valued customers will benefit and enjoy more show time,” Y2K said.

The promoters said they were grateful for the support they received from Ethiopian Airlines although they would not divulge details.

Ethiopian Airlines, which has several regular flights to and from Harare, is also expected to be involved with Y2K’s flagship SAMA Festival UK, with this year’s edition set for July 4-5.

Y2K said they expected sell-out crowds at both the London and Leicester shows this weekend. “This concert is very much by popular demand and we are appealing to all attending to arrive on time and to maintain calmness, peace, love and more importantly to celebrate our music and culture.”

Aance tickets for both shows are selling at pound28 via the tour organiser’s website (www.y2kpromotions.com).

“Aance tickets holders will have their own entrance to the venue for swift access,” Y2K directors, said.

“The London venue, The Royal Regency, offers a luxurious VIP area located on a top tier and directly opposite the stage with an excellent view, while it also has its own bar and bathrooms.

“VIP is priced generously at pound40. In fact, both venues in London and Leicester are in tune with our motto ‘excellence comes as standard.'”
