Shaggy to headline 38th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta concerts

by St. Maarten Heineken Regatta 23 Jan 20:58 GMT 1-4 March 2018

The 38th edition of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta will take place from March 1-4, 2018 and promises a "Legendary Night" to close off the final evening.

Organizers are proud to announce the return of Mr. Boombastic – International recording superstar: Shaggy – who will be the headline act for the evening of March 4th at Port de Plaisance. Shaggy is a Multi Grammy Award winning artist from Jamaica, and is the only certified diamond-selling Dancehall Reggae Artist.

Since exploding on the music scene, Shaggy's several gold and multi-platinum selling albums have won him a Grammy Award in 1996 for Best Reggae Album, 5 Grammy nominations, and topped an impressive chart list that included the Top 40 Rhythmic charts, Hot 100, Billboard 200, among others. Shaggy's illustrious career has seen the international superstar perform alongside some of the biggest names in all genres of music, notably he recently collaborated with his longtime friend and producer Costi, as Shaggy joined Afro Pop artist Mohombi and Australian singer Faydee on the recently released vibrant and catchy single, "I Need Your Love."

John Leone of International Liquor and Tobacco Trading Ltd. states "We are extremely excited to bring Shaggy back to the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. Shaggy has been a great supporter of the island and has offered to perform for a highly reduced fee this year to support fundraising efforts for hurricane relief. We are extremely excited about having him back on stage again for this truly unique edition of the Regatta. It's time for some Serious Fun!"

Entrance to the performance on Sunday night will have a $25 admission fee for the general public, with at least $5 of each ticket going to the Charity fund. Tickets will soon be available for purchase at multiple locations on the island and online, with some great deals and discounts to be followed. Tickets can already be reserved at the Regatta Office, by sending an email to regatta@heinekenregatta.com. More information about performers for the remaining evenings will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Concert Venue will also have a VIP area and a Sailors Lounge. VIP tickets for the Sunday night concert will be sold at $ 100 a ticket. A Sailors Lounge will be opened for all nights of the event, with sailors being able to buy a $75 Entertainment Package that allows them access to the Concert Venue and the Sailors Lounge.
