Disney’s The Lion King Live in Concert will run for 3 shows at The Sun Arena in Pretoria in December

FNB and Disney Africa have announced a collaboration to bring a series of family-oriented Disney LIVE events over the course of the next year to South African audiences.

As part of this, FNB customers will have access to a special pre-sale ticket purchasing window, as well as access to specials and surprise perks. The first of these events will be Disney’s The Lion King LIVE In Concert that will play to Gauteng audiences this festive season.

In The Lion King Live In Concert, the all-new Disney film that was released last month in cinemas, will come to life on an epic scale as it’s screened and accompanied live by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

The action, adventure and wild excitement of the 2019 film will be coming to The Sun Arena at Time Square in Pretoria on the 10th, 11th and 12th of December this year, in a perfectly synchronised live orchestral performance.

Tickets are on sale exclusively through Computicket from 09:00am on Tuesday 27th August 2019, with prices starting from R200 per person at www.computicket.com.

FNB customers will have the opportunity to purchase tickets during a preferential pre-sale ticket purchasing period from 22 August to 26 August via Computicket or eBucks.com.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with FNB in bringing these world class and unforgettable Disney live events to South African audiences over the next year,” says Christine Service, Senior Vice President and Country Manager, The Walt Disney Company Africa. “We are equally excited for these audiences to experience our films and characters in new and unexpected ways.”

The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, which has always provided the best of local and international soloists and conductors will add harmony to the new film. The Orchestra epitomises the highest standards and world class skills in performing arts.

It also endeavors to challenge the prevailing perception of classical music performances being elitist and Euro-centric by appealing to a truly egalitarian local audience, performing music that incorporates the greatest examples of both classical and South African music genres.
