~ Fans arrive from other islands ~
MIDDLE REGION:--- All $30 tickets for St. Maarten’s Carnival flagship show, TelCell’s Night of the Hit Makers are sold out and patrons are being urged to grab their $40 tickets before Saturday’s show in the Festival Village.
Xtratight producer, Bertaux ‘Mr. Rude’ Fleming said the $40 tickets will be on sale right up until 9:00am on April 28, the day of the much-anticipated show. Persons will pay more at the gate. Fleming has not, however, disclosed how much more patrons will pay at the gate.
There is much hype about ‘Night of the Hit Makers’, with persons travelling from neighbouring islands and as far south as Aruba, as Fleming has never failed to satisfy his fans in the six years the show has been running.
This year will feature Grammy-nominated Reggae artiste Jah Cure; Haitian Kompa band out of Miami, T-Vice; St. Maarten's own Control Band; and the original Burning Flames now known as Fantastic Four out of Antigua. It is the first year that a Reggae artiste is in the line-up.
Tickets can be bought at SOS Radio, Van Dorp, Domino's on Bush Road, Abu Ghazi in Madame Estate, Adolphus Office Supplies, and Fleming’s Café at Raoul Illidge Sports Complex.
