Buju concert almost sold out
This may be your last chance to get tickets for one of the most anticipated events in Jamaica's musical history, Buju Banton's Long Walk to Freedom Concert.
The organisers of Gargamel Music and Boom Energy Drink present Long Walk to Freedom - Jamaica say tickets for the historic concert, slated for March 16 at the National Stadium in St Andrew, are almost completely sold out.
With one month to go, the tickets for the VIP and grandstand areas are completely finished, and only a small number of tickets are still available for the general field and bleachers sections of the stadium.
In January, thousands of tickets were quickly purchased after they went on sale onCaribtix.com and Buju's official website,bujubanton.com. The process then switched to physical sales at select Digicel stores earlier this month.
According to Marlon Burke, a representative from Solid Agency, one of the producers of the event, the physical tickets have been steadily selling since they were placed in the stores, and they expect a completely sold-out event.
"We placed the tickets at different stores across the island to ensure that they were available to everybody. Now, there are only a few left, so this might be your last chance to get to see The Gargamel in his historic homecoming performance," Burke said.
With regard to the general ticket, which is priced at $12,500 and places the patron on the stadium football field, there are approximately 70 still available.
Burke said these remaining tickets are available at the Digicel headquarters in downtown Kingston and at the Digicel store (Matate Holdings) in Tropical Plaza, Half-Way Tree, St Andrew.
"There are a few more bleachers [tickets] available, but I am sure that won't be for much longer," Burke said, while pointing out that they are being sold for $4,000 each.
The Long Walk to Freedom Concert will feature a star-studded line-up of artistes sharing the stage with Grammy Award winner Buju. The concert, which will kick off the official Long Walk to Freedom tour, will feature Chronixx, Cocoa Tea, Etana, Ghost, Romain Virgo, LUST, Agent Sasco, Delly Ranks, and Buju's son, Jahzeil.
