It’s been a staple Friday night viewing for households across the country but LIVE Amp’s upcoming 25th season will be its last. As a result of poor ratings over the years, SABC has confirmed that it will be pulling the plug on the music series and that the upcoming season will be its last.
During its final farewell, the channel has revealed that theme for this season will be ‘The Last Dance” and is set to include guest appearances and other “reminiscent elements” as the series finishes on a high.
“The show has grown to become synonymous with youth Friday night rituals from more than a decade,” says Sane Zondi, SABC programme manager.
“With season 25 being earmarked as the final season of this flagship title, the series content plan has been devised to be reflective and to be celebratory of iconic moments and success achieved by the show from a talent development, socio-cultural contribution, creative innovation, and all-round leading music TV show brand in Mzansi. The best, most memorable and unique content moments will be reinterpreted for the audiences combined with newly curated music performances.”
The show’s 25th and final season, presented by DJ Speedsta and DJ Lamiez, premieres tomorrow night at 19h30 on SABC 1.
