Currently in Australia on a six city tour of that continent, international Dancehall superstar Demarco was nothing short of superb last weekend when he pulled out thousands of Spanish speaking fans in Costa Rica for a pair of concerts dubbed the ‘Black Carpet’.

Hosted in the Afro-Caribbean community of Limon the first staging saw a large influx of over 7,000 patrons filing in to show their support for the Jamaican. Less than thirty minutes into the show the venue was filled to capacity forcing the promoters to close the gates. The city’s emergency services we also placed on high alert, thankfully there were no incidents. After rocking the sweat drenched audience, Demarco took time out to greet many whom never got the opportunity to see the performance.
On Sunday the focus shifted to San Jose for the second staging at Club Vertigo the line-up this time featured local stars: Banton, Toledo, Ghetto and Slam Jam. Arriving at minutes to midnight amidst screaming fans inside a venue bursting at the seams. Demarco kicked off his performance with classics such as: ‘Duppy’, ‘Fallen Soldier’, ‘True Friends’ and ‘I Love My Life’ , the singer’s security detailing was kept busy all night as they worked tirelessly to repel the intermittent hordes of female invading the stage.
Demarco intimated it was very gratifying to see how his fan base had grown exponentially in the Central American country since his inaugural visit in 2008.
“I expected a good crowd but what I witnessed was amazing. When you see thousands of persons who don’t even speak the same language as you coming out to support your concert it confirms that you are doing something right… Right now Costa Rica is one of my favourite places to perform. But of course there is nowhere in the world like Jamaica..” Currently soaring the charts globally with hits such as ‘Money’, ‘Lazy Body’ and ‘Apartment’, Demarco last Friday scored his 15th No.1 on the Hype TV Top 20 Video Chart with ‘Continue Whine’ [VIEW CHART]. The blonde-haired singer is expected to return of the island mid-September in preparation for his upcoming Birthday celebrations before jetting off to the Southwest Pacific French Colony of New Caledonia.
