The Legends Meet the Stars - Sparrow, Rose, Machel and Bunji in concert

On February 22, Xtatik Ltd. Will present "The Alternative Concept" at the O2 Amphitheatre, Welcome Bay, Chaguaramus. On this night, patrons will experience double the entertainment as two soca legends (The Mighty Sparrow and Calypso Rose) meet two soca stars (Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin) and host two international stars (Shaggy and Walker), all backed by two Caribbean bands (Krosfyah and Pure Energy).

Twin pleasures will continue throughout this fete, which doubles as a concert and will feature the unveilling of the much-antipated Xtatik 5.0 team The word on the street is that Montano will take the lead as the ringmaster of the Xtatik Circus, while also appearing as the supreme magician, who will perform thrilling acts of mind-control and death-defying stunts. Artistes like KMC and Maximus Dan will be paired together for twice the impact, while divas like Denise Belfon and "Trini" Jacobs will deliver two times the allure of the Trini woman.

Two Renault motor-vehicles will be raffled as part of the onslaught of promotional give-aways by Tri Star Promotions, Y De Limas and other. Additional guest performances from artistes like Benjai, Gailann, Onion (from Burning Flames) and the Antiguan, Wanski, will complete the star-studded cast which includes the entire cast of The Collector's Riddim LP.
