Reggae star I Octane has re-energised the reggae community in the United States with a series of stellar performances on his “My Life” tour that have captured the imagination and interest of concert goers and promoters alike.

On February 11th, I-Octane demolished a club in Houston Texas with the crowd favorite "No Love Inna Dem". Hitting the stage at about 2:30 a.m., cameras and lighters lit up the venue with pinpoints of light, as each song earned thunderous forwards.

Flava Entertainment, the promoters of this event stated that "I-Octane's performance was one of the most memorable performances in their history of hosting stage shows.”

After Houston, Texas it was off to Arcata, California, where Octane modified his set to please the herb loving, laid-back, old school reggae music type of crowd. He opened his set with with 'I A Cry" followed by 'Different Page', however the standout song of the night was 'Puff It', and he was forced to pull up the song no fewer than five times.

After that smashing performance, he headed to Oakland, California where I -Octane met up with fellow dancehall deejay Spragga Benz for an epic show. I Octane was in marquis form, hitting the stage with Mine Who You a Dis and immediately had the packed nightclub jumping. This song was followed by a steady stream of hits as the crowd loved every minute of his performance, requesting an encore of every song.
Then, the excitement went up yet another notch when I-Octane introduced Spragga Benz on stage and deafening cheers greeted their collaboration single 'Hurt Mi".

The next day, I-Octane was off to Fairfax California where he performed with a live band, delivering 50 minutes of non-stop hits after hits, capping his stint with an encore performance of 'One Love".

Then I-Octane jetted several hundred miles across the country to Miami. He performed in front of a sold out crowd who sang his songs word for word every song. Jr. Flexx was quoted as saying, "I- Octane is a true performer, I can’t remember the last time I saw an artist hold the attention of a packed house for 45 minutes".

He left his Miami performance and headed straight to the airport, and took off for Long Beach, California where he performed in front of an audience of 30,000 plus reggae music loving fans during the Raggamuffin Festival. I-Octane shared the stage with reggae icons such as Freddie McGregor, and Richie Spice on the last day of the 30th anniversary of this historic festival. Octane hit the stage after a stellar performance by the Queen of Reggae Marcia Griffths and before Gentleman and Reggae icons Israel Vibrations. I-Octane went on stage performing 'No Love Inna Dem', 'Mine Who you a Dis and a crowd favourite, “Badder than dem" which had the reggae loving crowd jumping.

I-Octane then eased the pace to serenade all the ladies in the venue with the sweet “Missing You”. He then provided one of the most memorable moments of the festival when he delivered a touching rendition of Lose a Friend while the 30,000 strong crowd waved lighters and hand-held devices, illuminating the entire stadium.

One impressed fan commented: “This was the first time in my 15 years of attending this Festival that I have jumped so much, I loved I-Octane’s performance, hope to see him next year"

The following day, he performed at the 30th anniversary to San Diego Tribute to the Legends Festival alongside Richie Spice, Marcia Griffiths, Horace Andy, Freddie McGreggor, and Bunny Wailer. I-Octane closed his set with a tribute to Robert Nesta Marley and performed 'One Love'.

He ended that leg of his tour with performances in Chicago, Illinois, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, before returning to Jamaica to deliver a standout performance at the Magnum Follow Di Arrow show at James Bond Beach in St. Mary. Octane showed incredible stamina and maturity to deliver a brilliant, high-energy set that ignited the
crowd, a truly remarkable feat given his a grueling tour schedule that saw him crisscross the United States over the previous three weeks.
