On Sunday Grammy Award-winning jazz superstars George Benson and Al Jarreau will rock South Africa.

The duo's leg starts with a much- awaited performance at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate, north of Johannesburg.

The show, which kicks off at 6pm, will see the international stars belting out their music to an all-seated audience.

Givin' It Up, their new album, marks the first time the two have recorded together in their 30-year friendship. Now, thanks to companies like Kaya FM, their fans will get to see the two - singer-guitarist-songwriter George Benson, with vocalist extraordinaire-songwriter Al Jarreau - live in concert.

South Africa is one of the very few countries that the superstars will be touring.

Both artists are stars in their own right. Benson has enjoyed commercial success in different genres. He is one of the most respected performers for past 30 years.

Jarreau's unique vocal style and innovative musical expressions have made him one of the most exciting and critically-acclaimed performers of our time. He has been dubbed the man with an orchestra in his mouth.

Between the two of them they have sold more than 50million records and had 20 number one hits.

The cherry on top is that they have won 13 Grammy Awards in pop, jazz and R&B categories.

If you can't make Sunday you can catch the two at Durban's International Convention Centre on Human Rights Day.

The show starts at 7pm.

They will then move to Cape Town's Bellville Veladrome on Thursday to serenade fans.
