SAA Brings Dionne Warwick to South Africa

22 August, 2002, JOHANNESBURG: Dionne Warwick’s joy and purpose that she derives from both the music and the performance is set to dazzle South Africans once again, thanks to South African Airways and Variety Club.

Proceeds from Warwick’s concerts will benefit Variety Club of South Africa, an organisation whose mission is to assist children who are less fortunate.

She will use her visit to South Africa to highlight the plight of abused children and raise much needed funds towards the prevention of child abuse in our country.

Warwick is making a considerable contribution towards the needs of destitute children. SAA is touched by this gesture of sincerity and kindness.

SAA is proud to be apart of her mission and is just one way in which the airline continues to provide support to children who have no hope left.


Her tour will kick off at Carnival City with an exclusive show for corporates on 27 August and a second the following day in the Big Top Arena.

Her final performance will be held at N1 City, Goodwin, Cape Town on 30 August.

Over the last 40 years, Warwick, who became an international superstar in the 60’s has accumulated no less than 55 singles of pop, R & B and gospel.

She made popular hits such as ‘Do You Know The Way To San Jose’, “A House Is Not A Home’ and ‘Never Fall In Love Again’, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
