Sting and Shaggy are giving a free concert this Saturday, 24th November!

Sting and the Jamaican-American singer Shaggy are going to give a free concert on Saturday, November 24th in Budapest, on Heroes’ Square due to the 30th birthday of the Hungarian Lottery. If you are in Budapest,  join the crowd from 6pm, the Hungarian band Punnany Massif starts the show, Sting and Shaggy are expected to be on stage at 7:45pm. 

Sting has recently performed in Budapest in the autumn of 2017 on the 57th & 9th European tour. The multiple Grammy Award-winning  artist (originally named Gordon Sumner) has an extremely successful career with an incredible amount of hit songs, countless accolades and about 100 million discs sold . From 1977 to 1983 he was a singer and bass guitarist for one of the most important orchestras of the new wave. Sting and the Police have hits such as All That Time, Every Little Thing She Is Magic, Demolition Man, Driven to Tears, Message in a Bottle, Shape of My Heart, King of Pain, Every Breath You Take or Next to You. Since 1984 he has been working solo, since 1985 he has released twelve albums, won ten Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy Award and three Oscar Awards.  Englishman in New York, Fields of Gold or Desert Rose are his most catchy hits. This will be the 10th time he is performing in Budapest: his first concert in Hungary was in 1988 at the Amnesty International’s tour when he played with Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen and Tracy Chapman in the National Stadium. In 2004, he joined 250 thousand people at the Kapcsolat (= Connection) Concert at the Felvonulási Square in Budapest and then in 2012 at the Sportarena. Shaggy, or fka Orville Richard Burrell, is a Jamaican singer whose name comes with hits such as Oh Carolina, Boombastic, It Was Not Me or Angel – and the British star announced in April 2018 a joint album of 44/876 inspired by the island of the United Kingdom and Jamaica: the title of the album is composed of the area code of the two countries.

FYI: expect some traffic delays in the downtown and the local transport will be also diverted in the central areas.
