Live in Concert by Lucky Dube
     We are devastated by the news of the tragic passing of reggae legend Lucky Dube. Lucky was slain in an attempted hijacking in Rosettenville in Johannesburg October 19th, 2007, at approximately 8pm, whilst dropping off his children at a family members house.
     Although Lucky attempted to escape the scene, he had been fatally wounded from the hijacker’s attempt to steal his motor vehicle, and he died almost instantly.
Senseless and random, the death of Lucky Dube leaves a great void in the music industry, as 25 years of music suddenly ends in tragedy.
     South African born but globally revered, Lucky Dube was one of the country’s most toured and beloved artists ever. His music touched millions around the world, primarily through his 22 recorded albums - in Zulu, English and even Afrikaans - many of which have been record breakers with phenomenal sales from around the globe.
      As a frontline artist in the reggae genre, Lucky's creativity and inventiveness kept growing.
Compelling in his musicianship and intriguing in his lyrical content, Lucky's sonic daring to take his genre to new heights never failed to amaze even the most ardent fans, whilst reigning in new devotees to his magic every day.
     There are very few words that capture the magnitude of this devastating loss. As a musician, father and colleague, Lucky was one of the most charming, respected, selfless and dedicated people to have lived. He will be sorely missed.
     Lucky Dube was survived by his new wife Zanele and his 7 children Bongi, Nonkululeko, Thokozani, Laura, Siyanda, Philani and his brand new three-month old baby Melokuhle.
He was actually christened Lucky. His real name is Lucky Philip Dube.
His musical interest began whilst singing in the choir at school.
Lucky Dube does not drink or smoke cigarettes or marijuana despite the reputation most Rastafarians bear.
He loathes dogs due to being attacked by one as a child.
Lucky Dube once featured in a movie which was aptly titled ‘Getting Lucky’ and starred in the feature film 'Voice In The Dark' alongside actor John Savage.
His touring band was called The Slaves.
Lucky Dube holds the record for having the longest product endorsement for a musician ever in South Africa - The product was Ace Maize Meal.
He is the only South African artist to have a record signed to Motown Records.
Lucky recorded a duet with Sinead O'Connor over the internet.
His favourite bands are Toto, Bruce Hornsby and Aerosmith.
Lucky Dube has won over 20 awards for his musical contribution - both in South Africa and internationally.
He has been using the same sound engineer since he started recording music, Dave Segal, the same man who also accompanies him on every tour.
Lucky Dube is a big fan of horses, owning several of his own on his farm in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
He has a room in his house which holds nothing but his piano - it is here he writes his music.
His favourite movies are horror and mafia movies.
Lucky Dube was the first South African to have an enhanced CD released.
