The concert will take place on Saturday, October 17 on Front Street; and will feature reggae artists Shaggy and Maxi Priest; as well as high energy Caribbean soca band Spice and Company.

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. His hit singles include “Boombastic,” “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel.”

Maxi Priest secured a No. 1 hit single worldwide in 1990, including on U.S. Billboard charts, with the release of “Close To You,” and some of his other hit songs include “Wild World,” “Some Guys Have All The Luck,” “Close To You,” and “Housecall”.

Hailing from Barbados, Spice and Company experienced their first big hit, “You’re Always on my Mind,” in 1984, and some of their subsequent hits include “In De Congaline,” “Make Noise,” “Lift Ya Leg Up,” “Aware Africa,” “Shake it up,” and “Give them Freedom.”

The ticket giveaway will take place on the Bernews Facebook page, with questions about the America’s Cup to be posted at random times over 10 days, beginning on October 1 and with the last giveaway on October 10.

The contest is open to Bermuda residents only, and entrants are eligible to win only once each. The Bernews decision on each winner is final, and tickets must be picked up from America’s Cup offices located at Windward Place, 24 Crow Lane in Hamilton.

Remember, the contest will take place on the Bernews Facebook page beginning October 1, with the contest questions to be posted at random times throughout the day and night, so keep your eyes peeled in order to get your answers in as quickly as possible!

      You paid $4 Million for Beyoncé and didn’t seem to have a problem with that? It was actually promoted as an Tourism generator. Not sure who they thought would leave New York, NJ, Atlanta, Phili, Miami Washington, Toronto or Boston to Beyoncé here when they could see her in their own backyard. What did that get you? How many tourists came? I think I counted 4 maybe 5 and I’m sure they were already here.

      Stop the petty bickering! If you wish to praise the PLP encourage them to be a better opposition. That should not be confused with, they should be better at b!@#!’n and accusing without facts.

    My only question is why do mass give aways?

    Does the hard working bermudian have a computer by hand?

    Why not just lower ticket prices for everyone and do no give aways…

    • Selecta says:

      That is what just about every promoter does! If I win a ticket, I am much more likely to convince friends to go as well because nobody likes to go alone. It also gets people excited, gets them to go to the Facebook page so that you can see the adverts which makes sponsors happy etc. There are many reasons why promoters do give aways and freebies.

      Always complaining. They give away free tickets, you still complain. Whiner.
