Sting promoter Isaiah Laing has announced that come December 2020 the greatest one-night reggae show on earth, ‘Sting', will make its return. Laing expressed during an interview that having anticipated that the pandemic would put the world under a lockdown, he and his team had already begun making plans since March to host the virtual edition of the festive season staple.
Even though the event will be virtual, Laing said that there will be a charge to access viewing of the reggae/dancehall stage show, but that it won’t be anything the people can't handle.
"Besides, Sting has been the only dancehall stage show people rush to buy tickets for. They are going to rush at this just the same," he said.
Laing stated that he has approached some of the biggest names in the music industry to participate in the event, both locally and internationally, of which most have been receptive.
Some people commented that it is a good move while others stated that Sting will not be Sting without the 'World Boss' Vybz Kartel, and the 'Don Gorgon' Ninja Man. Both dancehall recording artistes are currently serving prison sentences.
With what sting has been offering over the years, Laing does not see any reason why persons would not be interested in the virtual staging of the show.
