POLICE PULLED THE PLUG ON STING 2015 BEFORE TOP ACTS COULD PERFORM!

 Isaiah Laing, Sting’s founder and promoter—

ST CATHERINE, Jamaica – Sting has again lived up to its reputation for drama. The annual Boxing Day dancehall show ended at 6:15 am Sunday, when police halted proceedings at the Jamworld complex in Portmore, St Catherine.

It ended with a number of top acts, including Beenie Man, yet to perform.

Isaiah Laing, the show’s founder and promoter, could not be reached for comment.

This year’s event had an ‘old school’ flavour and was dubbed ‘From Now Till Then’. A number of artists who shone in the 1980’s and 1990’s, including Burro Banton, Major Mackerel, Jigsy King, and Tony Curtis, did brief performances.

But marquee acts were unable to take the stage as the police stepped in, four hours past the 2:00 cut-off time.Known for theatrics, including artist ‘clashes’ and outrageous fashions, Sting has been a top dancehall draw since it was first held in 1984 at Cinema 2 in Kingston.
