Sting offers royal treatment for patrons

Sting's 30th anniversary event will provide patrons amenities suitable for their entertainment cravings, but holding down Platinum tickets is a topping many would not want to pass up.

As with the US$30,000 stage clash, purchase of Platinum tickets is an ideal item for the night's entertainment.

Holders of such tickets will have all-access-granted pass to the Platinum Sky Box, which will give the best view of the show, a chance to mingle with artistes and international media and to consume glorious mouth-watering gourmet food.

Only 500 tickets were made available, at a cost of J$30,000 for two. There can be no purchase of a single ticket and only 1,000 patrons will be in the Sting Platinum Box.

For years, Sting has been the reference point for dancehall stage shows in Jamaica. The organisers, Isaiah Laing and recent full-time partner, Joseph Bagdonavich, are pulling all strings to make the event's 30th celebration a most memorable experience for their ever-growing audience.

The event, set to take place December 26 at Jamworld Entertainment Complex in Portmore, St Catherine, will feature international rap superstars Wyclef Jean and 2Chainz, along with local giants Beenie Man, Ninja Man, Sizzla, Mavado and Lady Saw.

The much-touted event will also feature Bagdonavich's Downsound Records' in Nature, Ishawna, Harry Toddler, Specialist, Don Husky and Nazir. The preparations leading up to Sting have been more than a workload, according to DSR's marketing director, Sean 'Contractor' Edwards, who has organised a media-blitz campaign at all major outlets leading up to the event.

"Sting poises to be a stellar event, this year than any other. For the past weeks, we have been attacking the media, non-stop, and the responses have been tremendous. The patrons are in for a special musical treat from the international artistes, the other local giants and Downsound Records' forces," he said.
