In a press release, Mark Myrie aka Buju Banton said: “The concept is to reunite with the fans and thank them personally for the tremendous level of support they have shown to me during these turbulent times.”

“I look forward to touching the stageonce more and coming together with the masses in a spirit of togetherness, harmony, unification and solidarity,” Myrie lamented showing that he hadn’t lost his spirit during his incarceration and trial on drugs.

The Buju Banton & Friends Before The Dawn Concert will be produced by Rocker’s Island Entertainment.

The acclaimed artiste received his fifth Grammy nomination in the Best Reggae Album category for his prophetic new project, Before The Dawn, released in September.

Buju was previously acknowledged by the Recording Academy for his albums Rasta Got Soul in 2009, Too Bad in 2007, Friends for Life in 2004 and Inna Heights in 1999.
