Trevor Noah announced on social media today that his show – with Eugene Khoza and newcomers Dillan Oliphant, Dusty Rich, Loyiso Madinga and Robby Collins – will come to Gauteng a month later than scheduled.
He explained: “Because of the Numsa (National Union of Metalworkers South Africa) strike, we had a huge delay in building the stage and venue in Johannesburg for the NationWild comedy tour. The great news is that the strike is now over and so we have metal again”.
The four-week strike by 220000 workers had cost the sector about R300-million a day.
The new dates are 14, 15, and 16 November.
“Because they’ve all received a raise, I hope the Numsa members will buy tickets,” he quipped.
The previous dates, for the show in Roodepoort, were 10, 11 and 12 October. Noah said Computicket would change or refund any tickets that had been booked for these dates.
