Nope..no show. It was a disappointment for the 1500 people thaf showed up! The 13, 500 that made other plans were the smart ones.another huge leap backwards for soca! Smh
Ras,


Come on Man….today Sunday, stop lying to the ppl( well minus SuperBlue not showing up)….lol, what, minimum 30 shows, another like 50 party/fetes, Boatrides, panorama, limes, etc…..




Come on, you really expect Barclay’s Center at them prices to be sold out on a night like this ?





We fully enjoyed ourselves , you do mean 1,500 on the floor alone ! Anyway, By far one of the Best performance I saw by Bunji, and I am not a big fan of his!



He was on his “ A “ Game ! Came out Blazing and kept it at that pace ! he did exactly what I wanted him to do….” Sing the damn Song” ….none of this nonsense about , sing it for me or …sing 5 sec of the song…pull up ! Next tune!



So I guess they were paid a good amount of money, or he read fans review……no, you are the artist/entertainer…do your thing ! ….very impress with him.




As usual, Fayann dress the part, sexy, all that she needed imo was 5 inch pumps to Rock Barclays’, clearly she can perform in them.




All the Artists were good, Alison got her award, and she was excellent!




Beenie Man…Nuff respect to see you walk past…sat down to see a soca show ! and on stage to Buss a wine !





Now re : the crowd….a little lack luster for that type of show……but what was more important were that the artists did their part in a professional manner, that is all I can ask for! ….The rest is up to the promoters to figure out how to get ppl into to the venue!




After that went straight to Vale fete…..was excellent, by the time our friends got there….they waited one hour 30 mins at best to get in, said that it was like two city blocks wait to get in.
no issues…good night !




Beenie trying to Buss a wine !

I noticed Beenie Man opening supporting soca artists and soca shows long time now. That's a good look.

I just came back from a long trip mehself so its hard for me to get into the labor day mode. I even missed my beloved pan last night.

Glad things went well.

Bennie is a class act...period, so no surprise there, the surprise was to see him sat and watch a complete soca show like a fan...that I was impress with.

Will see what he does tonight...back there again.

why is it that anytime somebody expresses feedback that isnt brownnosing, there's this rush to post a whole long tralalala of praise? i dont get it.. ras expressed that a billed performer didnt perform, what's the big deal??? y'all kill me with this... everybody has a right to their opininion , good and bad, so flooding the thread with useless praise isntgoing to excuse the fact that superblue didnt show up though.. for whatever reason...


uggh. and anybody who knows Beenie man knows that he's been a part of the soca scene in TnT for carnival for years... from that collab with machel Outa Space to playing mas etc.. not new at all..

Another dahved levy scam!
lol, how so, allyuh good yes, i feel more sorry for Levy how much you think he had to put out to rent the place ?



The show was good, where were you sitting ?

I was in section 124, asking because i was DWL at that Jamaican youth who jumped up on the chair an fell, two rows from me while Alison was performing.

Even if Super Blue was there, but so much they can get out of him, the energy level is not there anymore, i heard some nonsense that he wanted Roy Cape to back him up.

how Fayann end it so, i was expecting powder, Big flags in there and ting, worth the money i spent.

Bro, the only reason I went yo yhe show was to see super blue. I wasny paying $75 to see bunji and fayann....but super blue...hell yea. If the show was good or not doesnt matter cause I paid to see super blue and he wasnt there.

Thats like saying I am buying ticket to go see a beres hammond show but he isnt there, they send alicia keys instead...it may be a good show none the less but I paid to see beres, nota licia keys! Advertise a show with artists that will be there and give me the choice to go see them or not. Dont tell me one things then after I pay and reach di story chand up.
Its like going to a restaurant and ordering a boneless chicken roti but the man bring you a nathans hot dog instead and tell you enjoy it cause its just as good.
As far as feeling bad for the promoter...they must have got some great sponsorship for that....cause I KNOW dahved levely isnt investing his own money to keep them shows....sh1t bunji couldnt sell out barclayd even if tickets was giving away free.

Huh, i am confuse, who said Super Blue was going to be on the show ?





Boi, SuperBlue waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past his prime, so i dont know what you expected from him, i dont even think he has the energy to do three full songs.

Boi, wait, you would pick to see SB over Bunji and Fayann, HuH ?


But i do understand your outrage.

Yeah i agree with Ras. Every artist on the bill should be present else you will robbing someone in the audience who came to see the artist that didn't show.

IDK, i didnt even know SB was booked for that show until last night at the show when Fayann said he is not here and i will sing his song and someone was saying he wanted Roy Cape to back him up, etc.


anyway, shit happen so in a case like this, what would you suggest , like dont attend ?


or maybe, prior the show if the artistes that are missing, if you want to see them, then you get a refund prior to the show ?

here is one of many ads claiming super blue gonna be there:

https://twitter.com/barclayscenter/status/370951727979429888

if something happens and he cant be there at least have the decency to address the crowd and give them an alternative artist..

something like "unfortunately super blue couldnt make it but here is Shadow"...or something to that effect.

dont just cut the show suddenly and put fayann on the spot. smh

ok, well, i bought my tickets a month ago, so, i didnt even know he was booked, and to tell you the truth, i hear your outrage, but to think SB can do min three songs, given his past issues, that is asking alot, did you not see the reviews in Soca chat for Soca Monarch or you dont go in there ?

either way, what i paid for, i was happy, it was a good show and happy to see we people , as few as they may be, came out and support We Ting !

Yea, if you werent expecting SB then the show was ok.
I over heard some barclays execs. Talking and they were saying hoe they were surprised that soca night had the worst ticket sales out of all nights. They figured reggae night would be best but were supprised that friday (french night) out sold di soca ting. Personally I think all nights should be combined into one big thing.
