Buju Banton, set to return to the Big Apple

Grammy-winning reggae-dancehall legend Buju Banton will bring his "Long Walk to Freedom" tour to UBS Arena in Queens, New York, on July 13th, just in time to celebrate his 51st birthday. This marks his first live concert in the Big Apple in 15 years.

After a six-year absence, Banton recently made headlines upon his return to the US, arriving in Miami where he was seen with his girlfriend and popular DJ Khaled, along with other music stars including Busta Rhymes. Now, Banton is set to grace the US stages again with his tour, which he launched in 2019 in Kingston, Jamaica, following his release from prison in the USA.

Joining Banton will be the famous New York duo Massive B Sound, selectors/producers Jabba and Bobby Konders. Tickets for the concert will go on sale on Friday, May 31.

Additionally, Banton is featured on Stefflon Don's upcoming album "Island 54," with a collaboration titled "Dweet," slated for release in June.
