The first island in the OECS to confirm a Long Walk to Freedom tour date


St. George’s, Grenada – January 18, 2019: Grammy award winning singer, songwriter and producer Mark Anthony Myrie prominently known as Buju Banton will return to Grenada for the first time in over a decade in a highly anticipated hallmark event staged by Sunshine Promotions on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at the National Cricket Stadium.  

Since January 2011, the last time he performed in front of a live audience, there has been great anticipation by fans worldwide for the return of Buju Banton to the stage. Off the heels of his recent return to his home country, the Jamaican born reggae and dancehall music icon will stage a series of live concerts branded as the “Long Walk to Freedom” tour. The tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique is the latest to announce a tour date and is the only OECS island thus far to confirm a staging of the world-renowned tour, through Sunshine Promotions, one of the region’s leading entertainment and sound companies. 

The tour will be staged in conjunction with Sunshine Promotions’ annual Mother’s Day event brand – Night of Love – which featured in 2018 another reggae legend, Beres Hammond. Ian St. Bernard, Founder, Sunshine Promotions has noted the significance of an event of this magnitude to Grenada and the region. “Grenada has always been a major player in regional and diasporic entertainment. We are pleased to host the Long Walk to Freedom tour not just for Grenadian residents but welcome our neighbours from the OECS and other Caribbean islands as well as our friends within the diaspora,” St. Bernard shared recently. 

Grenada is well known as one of the safest islands in the Caribbean as it is among the islands with the lowest crime rates in the hemisphere. This almost guarantees a secured spectator experience for all the visitors traveling to witness the concert on the island. “Sunshine Promotions will make this a regionally affordable event so that our friends from St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Dominica and all the neighbouring islands; including Grenadians living in the US and Canada can have the opportunity to witness Buju Banton live in concert,” St. Bernard continued.

Sunshine Promotions will collaborate with governmental, non-governmental and corporate organisations to ensure that Night of Love; Long Walk to Freedom is a nationally adopted and supported event.

The reception from the Grenadian public, since the tour’s announcement, continues to be encouraging as this promise to be one of the biggest live concerts to be held on the island in recent years. 

Thus far the Caribbean islands to confirm a staging of the Long Walk to Freedom tour have been Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados The Bahamas and St. Kitts and Nevis for its annual music festival. “Grenada is proud to be a part of the conversation when considering Caribbean islands that have regionally competitive entertainment products. As a musical destination people can visit Grenada not just to witness its beauty and warmth but to engage in one-of-a-kind signature events in an inclusive, interactive and safe environment,” St. Bernard shared.
