(Kingston, Jamaica) — Dancehall artiste Mr. Vegas has embarked on his European tour and thus far he says the response has been phenomenal.
On Saturday he performed at one of the biggest reggae festivals in Europe, the 25th staging of the SummerJam Festival. The festival which is known for its stellar lineup of premium Reggae stars from across the world, this year included: Gentleman, Nas and Junior Gong, Tony Rebel, Queen Ifrica, Julian Marley, Capleton and others.
Mr. Vegas says, “The show went great. I loved the energy of the crowd and as a performer I love to feel that kind of excitement and love because I really do get out there and give my all in each performance. It definitely went well.”
On Sunday, the artiste then moved on to create pandemonium at the Caleo Reggae Festival in Italy, while today, he will be appearing in Roma, Italy for yet another show. For the remainder of this week he will continue on to shows in Switzerland, Spain and Netherlands.
In the meantime he has released a new single, Sweet Jamaica, which pays homage to all the positive things about Jamaica. “I did that song because sometimes we lose sight of the fact that Jamaica is a great place irrespective of all our problems and as someone who travels so much because of work, I know that. It has a great slow reggae vibe to it that’s kind of reminscent to what I used to hear growing up.”
