Following on the mega-success of his benefit concert in Kingston in aid of the Bustamante Hospital for Children, diamond-selling artiste, Orville ‘Shaggy’ Burrell, will officially kick off his touring season for 2009.
Called the Ragamuffin tour, it will see Shaggy in concert in Australia and New Zealand, territories which he has visited several times before, each time performing to sold-out audiences.
Shaggy leaves this weekend for Cayman, where he has a show on January 17, after which he flies to Miama to pick up the 19-hour flight to Australia. His first show there takes place on January 24 at the Supreme Court Gardens/Fremantle Oval in Perth. Two days later, Shaggy and his party move on to the Seagulls Ballina Rugby Leagues Club in Ballina and January 30 is the concert in Brisbane.
The following days will see the reggae artiste in performances in Hunter Valley, Melbourne, and Sydney in Australia, after which he is scheduled for one concert only in New Zealand. This takes place at the Rotura International Stadium in that country.
