10 years after his Buju’s SummerJam performance in 2009, Buju Banton is scheduled to headline the Red Stage on Saturday – July 6, 2019.Additional concerts have been confirmed, including Bahamas, Suriname and Grenada.
Banton released a number of dancehall singles as early as 1987 but came to prominence in 1992 with two albums, Stamina Daddy and Mr. Mention, the latter which became the best-selling album in Jamaican history upon its release. That year he also broke the record for #1 singles in Jamaica, previous held by Bob Marley. He signed with the major label Mercury Records and released Voice of Jamaica in 1993. By the mid-1990s, Banton’s music became more influenced by his Rastafari faith, as heard on the seminal albums ‘Til Shiloh and Inna Heights. The show in Cologne at SummerJam is the first show that has been announced for Europe on his Long Walk To Freedom Tour 2019 .
