Guyanese turned up in their numbers for every single event during the Guyana Carnival celebrations thus far, and it is expected that the Guyana National Stadium will be packed to capacity on Saturday evening for one of the most anticipated concerts of the season.
The “I am Legend” concert, will feature Jamaican reggae artist Buju Banton who was recently released from prison after serving time for drug possession.
After his release and the growing interest of Guyanese to see the Jamaican artiste perform live, High Frequency Entertainment, in collaboration with King Leo Promotion and the Guyana Carnival Committee, decided it was a great opportunity to make Guyana a part of the “Long Walk to Freedom” tour.
Banton, whose “Long Walk to Freedom” tour was announced late last year, listed many countries in the Caribbean such as Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, St Kitts, Suriname, Grenada and his home country, Jamaica, as concert destinations; and finally, Guyana was added to that list.
Banton, who has always referred to Guyana as one of his favourite countries to perform in, has not performed here for over 12 years; however, he will return with his full band to give his Guyanese fans a long overdue and highly-anticipated concert.
The reggae superstar is known for hits such as “Untold Stories”, “Wanna Be Loved”, “Champion”, “Deportees”, “Not An Easy Road” and much more.
In addition to Buju, Alabama, First Born Alabama and Natural Black. General Admission tickets cost US$25, while the VIP tickets cost US$150 and the VVIP tickets will be available at a cost of US$200 each.
