Confirmed: Maxi Priest and Shaggy are coming

Reggae stars Maxi Priest and Shaggy will headline the America's Cup Jam to take place during next month's Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series Bermuda, according to an official flyer which has appeared on social media.

According to the flyer, the duo will perform at an October 17 concert at the No 1 Car Park on Front Street between 8pm and 11pm.

Shaggy is a Grammy Award-winner while Maxi Priest is regarded as one of the top British reggae singers of all time.
