Over 12,000 turned up at the Playa Serena, Gorgona Beach venue in Panama to get a glimpse of International Reggae superstar Jah Cure perform his reggae hits last Easter weekend.
Thunderclouds and intermittent rain could not stop reggae fans from flocking to the beach to see his performance and they were not left disappointed.
Loud screams could be heard as Jah Cure's band struck up the first chords of Respect, after which he performed Jah Jah Bless Me as his followers chanted the words. The most popular songs during his set were the hits, Never Find, Longing For, Only You, Reflection, Respect, Unconditional Love, Nothing and Love is. The fans sang the words of each song and chanted 'Jah Cure Jah Cure' all around the venue in between the songs.
It was Cure's first time performing in Panama. The artiste has performed in sold-out venues during his last eight performances, playing to packed venues during onstage stints in St. Lucia, French Guiana, Trinidad, Antigua, Turks and Caicos, Guyana, and St. Vincent.
"Before we left the hotel, the promoter kept getting calls that the police were at the venue threatening to lock the show down.
This is because it is said that there were too many people at the venue.
Last month, thousands of Jah Cure fans in St. Vincent left Victoria Park disappointed and angry when he failed to appear onstage at a concert there because the promoter allegedly failed to meet his contractual obligations. At that time, there were reports that bottles were thrown and shots fired by security personnel to quell the angry crowd. The singer has since apologized to fans for the incident and promised to return to St. Vincent for a "responsible promoter".
