Jamaican Dancehall artiste Mr. Vegas and Trinidad Soca Queen Fay-Ann Lyons will be performing live in St. Kitts on April 23rd. As part of the ICC World Twenty20 West Indies 2010 promotional campaign for the upcoming series, Mr. Vegas and Lyons collaborated to produce the tournament song “Bring It”. According to Clement Ogarro, Communications Officer responsible for St. Kitts-Nevis Public Relations for the WICB, the duo will arrive in St. Kitts on April 22nd and spend two days. He clarified that it would not be a concert in the usual sense but a “Flash Concert” where the pair would only perform the Tournament song. “The artistes will arrive the day before they are scheduled to perform and leave the day after. I just want to emphasize that this is not a concert where Mr. Vegas and Fay-Ann will be performing their music. The artistes will be here to promote the Tournament By performing the campaign song “Bring It” only,” he told The Observer . He informed that on Friday, April 23rd the ‘flash concert’ would take place at 3:30 until 5 pm in the heart of downtown Basseterre. A 26-piece steel orchestra led By Melvin Hewlett and Nigel Williams will open the event By performing the national anthems of the 8 participating countries. Other entertainment would include a performance By a member of Mr. Vegas’ entourage as well as a Michael Jackson impersonator. St. Kitts will also see a Bus Tour that will span four dates, April 7 at the Ferry Terminal, April 13 at The Circus, April 21 at Old Road and Sandy Point, and April 28 at Bakers Corner and Maynard Park, Cayon. “We will have one of those Omni busses decorated and branded for the ICC tournament and staff and local celebrities will travel around the island creating a party mood for the event. There will music, many give-aways of ICC World Twenty20 tournament paraphernalia and several of the players from the West Indies Female team and the England team are slated to be onboard during the bus tours,” Ogarro said. St Kitts will stage the women’s group stages of the tournament from April 30- May 16. The Super 8 teams- West Indies, England, Australia, South America, New Zealand, India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan- will begin arriving in St. Kitts from as early as April 11 for the month-long tint. The first match is scheduled for May 5th when West Indies face South Africa and the exciting cricket action will culminate May 16 with the Women’s Final. Ogarro said the excitement and buzz about ICC cricket returning to the Federation is building as the tournament draws near. He said he has fielded numerous calls from persons overseas inquiring about tickets for the event. “We are now feeling the vibe about cricket coming back to our shores. Persons are inquiring about purchasing tickets however the tickets to the games in St. Kitts will be free to the general public. The ticket offices at East Park Range will open from next week and all you have to do is show up with your I.D. and collect as many as 4 tickets per person.”
