Chris Brown will be taking his popular Under The Influence show to Jamaica, with the R&B singer scheduled to perform at the National Stadium in Kingston on August 27.
Brown’s last performance in the country was in 2010 at Reggae Sumfest. And though fans may recall the artiste’s energetic performance of his biggest hits, they most certainly would not remember it coming with a hefty $1.5 million price tag.
Brown’s show is slated as one of multiple events for the Bizarre Weekend (BZR WKND), such as the invitation-only Haute Monde Jamaica, Memba Dis! Ultimate Ol’ Skool Party, and Paradise Brunch Party, which will take place from August 25–27.
Brown’s show is set to be the BZR WKND’s grand finale, with Jamaican dancehall artistes Dexta Daps, Teejay, and Ding Dong also included on the event’s roster.
The concert tickets range from $6,975 for Bleachers and $11,625 for Grandstand tickets to the more extravagant Blu VEW (VIP) access at $27,125, Green VEW (VVIP) access at $42,625, Indigo (Ultra VIP) tickets at $73,625, and elevated cabana suites for $775,000.
Finally, there are the ultra-exclusive Sky VEW Suites, which come with an accompanying $1.5 million ticket cost that has since gone viral on social media, with even local loan establishments offering to cover the price tag with a four-year repayment term for fans.
Fans willing to shell out $1.5 million for the Sky VEW Suites can expect 12 all-inclusive ultra VIP tickets for the concert, four on-site VIP parking passes, expedited entry via a dedicated express lane, five premium bottles, chasers, ice, and dedicated hostess. Private security, an ultra-VIP all-inclusive culinary experience, and access to the executive VIP bathrooms will also be provided.
Additionally, Sky View patrons will walk away with 12 VIP BZR Weekend passes to Memba Dis!, Rise and Toast brunch, and Indigo, as well as BZR souvenirs.
According to Judith Bodley, a member of the organising team for BZR Wknd, patrons attending the event, whether they are in the Bleachers or Sky VEW, will be pleased with what they paid for.
