Shaggy — a Ragamuffin Down Under

Diamond-selling artiste, Shaggy, who has reportedly sold over 20 million records, has been thoroughly enjoying his seven-city, two-country tour of Australia and New Zealand, two of the places he has been touring since January 24, spreading the message of reggae/dancehall music to hardcore fans and new converts.
Easily shaking off the effects of a grueling 19-hour flight to Down Under (Australia), Shaggy was ready to take on his duties as entertainer. And with a official kick-off date of January 24, Shaggy’s Ragamuffin Tour started on an energetic, musical high. The fans definitely knew who was in town and the reason for them being at the show. They also knew about Shaggy’s efforts on behalf of the Bustamante Hospital for Children, and they praised him for it. What they all perhaps didn’t know of was the children’s book, Shaggy Parrot and the Reggae Band, but that won’t be a secret much longer.
Pulling from his extensive repertoire, Mr Boombastic gave his fans a show of a lifetime, performing to sold-out audiences. He showed love to fans in Perth, Belina, Brisbane, New Castle, Melbourne and Sydney — all in Australia — and they showed him back, while singing their favourite Shaggy songs … which seemed to be all of them.
While in New Zealand, the original Mr Lover Lover performed in Rotorua, again to mass acceptance from the reggae-loving people.
The Ragamuffin Tour ends on February 7, after which Shaggy and his entourage leave for Dubai.
Other bands on the tour are Inner Circle, Eddy Grant, Arrested Development, and Ziggy Marley.
Meanwhile, in Jamaica, Shaggy’s hit single, Bad Man Don’t Cry, which was released in December last year is making its stride up the local charts. After two weeks, it sits at #15 on Hype TV Top 20 singles chart and debuted at number 17 on Richie B Top 20 reggae singles chart.

  4. I think that everything said made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn't solid., but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab people's
    attention? I mean "Shaggy - a Ragamuffin Down Under"
    is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they write article titles to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything've written.

    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit
    more interesting.
