Never disappointing an audience, his powerful set ended with him being added to the Cafe’s Hall of Fame among the likes of Frank Sinatra, Charlie Chaplin, Cool and the Gang and Joe. Park Cafe is the oldest club in Germany at over 100 years old.
The Europe leg of the tour kicked off on July 30 in Holland at the Reggae Rotterdam Festival to an audience of over 20,000 fans.
“I’ve been doing this for twenty-five years and I can’t get over the power of dancehall music. It is a great gift I and I have enuh, and a greater joy to be on tour to share this music,” shared Beenie Man when asked how he felt about this tour.
When asked what city his is most looking forward to performing in he shared, “Johannesburg, because of the connection we have with South Arica and the fight against apartheid. I’ll be meeting with Winnie Mandela and it will be a great honour to see her a third time.Very few people know the role Mandela played in launching my career, so whenever I am in South Africa I have to visit the Mandela house.”
Beenie Man’s next show is slated for August 15 in Spain for the Rototom Sunsplash European Reggae Festival before he begins the Africa leg of the tour, with his first show set for Zimbabwe.
