Ticketpro Dome memories live on

The owner of the Ticketpro Dome - Sasol Pension Fund - has sold the arena to a company that does not operate in the event space.

The selling of the Ticketpro Dome is extremely disappointing and heartbreaking for our industry. The Ticketpro Dome has been home to many international concerts and events in South Africa, and this will undoubtedly leave a huge void. Unfortunately, as we are only the managing company, we were unable to change the outcome of Sasol Pension Fund selling the venue due to force majeure

It's become THE concert. The major event - live event, exhibitions, tradeshows. You know. It's been the major venue. It's a landmark.

Anele and the Club chat fondest memories

The first time I went to the Dome, this man pulled on stage and said, 'You're MC'ing with me'. And I think I was about 21. Ja, and my nerves had to leave because there was a 16 000 crowd strong.

Think about all the kiddies shows you've watched there.

So then I thought you know Anele, I'm throw you in the deep end... And look at you today.. You're a mega star. You've done so well. I'm so proud of you.

The Ticketpro Dome opened on 8 April 1998 with a concert by Diana Ross, which was attended by over 15,000 people with a special guest appearance by the late former President Nelson Mandela.
