AFTER enjoying his performance on Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest, recording artiste Assassin will be heading to Europe this week for a number of gigs.
“I am looking forward to the idea of connecting with my fans in Europe, and I plan to go all out to give them a powerful set because I don’t get the chance to go that continent so often so I am going all out to please them,” Assassin said in a release.
Assassin delivered a strong set in front of a 20,000-strong Sumfest audience recently showing that he can do it with a well-rehearsed, and wonderfully delivered onstage stint at Reggae Sumfest.
He got a big forward for the We Are Not Afraid songs and Madda Badman. Screams greeted Hand Inna Di Air on the Sort Out Di Ting riddim and the crowd sang along to every line. However, the high point of his performance came when he delivered a Buju Banton-like delivery of Almighty Protect Me and even paused to deliver some social commentary regarding the recent spate of four beheadings in the Corporate Area.
Assassin is set to perform at the Rusea’s Old Students’ Association’s Lucea Yam and Seafood Festival at Watson Taylor Park today. He heads to Europe this week for performances at the Reggae Geel Festival in Geel Belgium on Friday, August 5, 2011.
He will also be a headliner on the Reggae Jam Festival in Bersenbrück Germany on Saturday, August 6.
