Reggae Singer Shaggy Arrives In Bermuda

October 16, 2015

[Updated] Grammy Award-winning reggae artist Shaggy arrived in Bermuda this afternoon [Oct 16], set to perform at tomorrow night’s America’s Cup Jam presented by Fidelity International.

The artist commented on the island’s beauty, saying how happy he is to be back in Bermuda.

Shaggy first garnered global success in 1995 with the release of his third album, Boombastic, which went on to sell more than 1 million copies and earned him a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.

Since then, Shaggy has released more than 11 albums, and some of his hit singles include “Boombastic,” “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel.”


“Shaggy will be performing as part of the line-up in the America’s Cup Jam presented by Fidelity International, which is being held at the #1 Dock on Front Street on Saturday, October 17th,” a spokesperson for Premier Tickets said.

“Gates open at 7pm and the line-up includes local MCs Nadanja & Uzimon, local band The Kings, Maxi Priest, Spice & Co Soca Band and Shaggy.

Concert promoters noted that the event is almost sold out, so extra capacity is being added with Calico Jack and UberVida which will be docked at the concert, providing what the organisers said a “great option” to watch the concert.

Tickets can be purchased online at or at Information Booths in the AC Event Village.”

Update 8.44pm: Premier Tickets said, “VIP Dock tickets are now sold out and we’ve added more VIP capacity by docking UberVida in the VIP section. We only have 200 general admission tickets left for the dock, and have also added extra capacity with the Calico Jack which is docked in the general admission section.

“The event is close to being sold out so customers are encouraged to buy their tickets asap at Ticket holders are also encouraged to arrive in the City early in order to get parking and allow time to get into the venue in time for the start of the show.”

          @Terry, couldn’t agree more!!! But I do find it hilarious how petty they are?? And they seriously think they can run this country??? Actions like this pettiness proves they have learned nothing from their mistakes and the only thing they have learned is the fact, they hate not being the government !!!!

    To Kangoocar

    Despite your constant NEGATIVITY – you, me and everyone else – we are all in the same boat
    (and no pun intended)

    You are not helping anyone with these types of remarks –

    If you don’t have anything nice (or constructive) to say – don’t say anything at all.

    • They cant help it, there has ALWAYS been anti-PLP and anti-Union activist in Bermuda(Elite Oligarchs), as a matter of fact in every country in the world there are groups (Tea Party Groups) that will ALWAYS oppose the Lower class and Labor Groups.

  6. Terry says:

    Notice no PLP MP’s banging Government recently.
    Notice how they are all so quiet.

    Notice all the dislikes by the trolls who have been told to dislike anything on local webs.

    All by design.

    You ain’t seen nothing yet.

  7. Never never says:

    Kangaroo is one of many SMH
