X-Factor winner Melanie Amaro and Jamaican recording artistes Tifa, Jah Bouks and QQ are also booked to perform at the concert.
The show is being hosted as a collaboration between American entertainment consultant Jason Newman, Somerset Crest, 957 Music Records, Urban Angels, Zip FM and RJR, and will be produced by Junior Taylor productions, which has done work on Jazz and Blues.
According to Jason Newman, Mindless Behavior in concert will be a family-oriented event.
“I saw that there was a need for a family event and bringing a group like Mindless Behavior here will give families a chance to feel like summer is still here even though it’s over. It’s already interesting to see how much the Jamaicans are tweeting about and members of Mindless Behavior group, and they have also tweeted back to the Jamaican fans,” Newman said.
Tickets to attend the event will cost patrons $2,500 general, $3,500 VIP and $4,500 for super VIP. Tickets are available for purchase and reservation online at touchtix.net. However, next week, tangible ticket outlets will be released to the public.
“Patrons can expect a concert like any of the other big pop star names. Mindless Behavior is an exciting group and the kids will enjoy it. Here is an event that caters to patrons who are early teen to even 50-year-olds. And there will be no profanity,” he said.
Mindless Behavior has opened sold-out tours for Backstreet Boys and Justin Bieber. The group was recently ranked number two as UMG artist behind Lady Gaga in terms of online presence and they have the number one artist page on MTV.com. Mindless Behavior also has over 50 million views on YouTube.com.
Gates will open at 1 p.m. However, the group is expected to perform between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. The event will conclude at 11 p.m.
