Jamaica celebrated its 50th year of independence this August and Brooklyn—home to one of the largest Jamaican populations in the U.S.—is the perfect place to join in the ongoing festivities!
Barclays Center is proud to present The Sound of Reggae, an evening showcasing the rich and varied musical sounds from this beautiful Caribbean island. Included in the lineup are some of the world’s most popular reggae-influenced artists, including England’s UB40, headed by Ali Campbell (“Red, Red Wine,” “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “Kingston Town”), Maxi Priest (“Close to You,” “That Girl”), Shaggy and Jamaica’s very own Beres Hammond (“Angel Eyes,” “Double Trouble”), who is known as “the storyteller” to millions of reggae fans around the globe.
Come join us at Barclays Center as we pay tribute to Jamaica’s rich musical heritage. It’s going to be a nonstop night of great music and dancing!
