The much-anticipated Mavado and Chris Martins concert has been rescheduled to take place during Easter, according to a statement from the main sponsors Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) under their flagship brand Bell Lager.
The concert, which was scheduled for December 29, 2012 at Lugogo Cricket Oval, was called off a day early after all preparations had been finalized. Failure to catch the flight by the Jamaican duo was the reason given for the cancellation. The statement ends speculation about dates, and rumours that another Jamaican, Konshens, had been chosen to replace Mavado.
"Following the postponement of the end- of-last-year's concert, UBL acknowledges that it is not about quickly bringing the Jamaican duo to Uganda but, rather, about what dates should be most convenient for our consumers," said the statement quoting Richard Wejuli Wabwire, UBL's Corporate Relations Director.
Organisers say the tickets that were bought for the cancelled show will still be valid for the Easter weekend concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
"Tickets already purchased, as well as complimentary tickets previously given to our consumers, are still valid; therefore, do not hesitate to present them at the gates," said Marketing Director Grace Nshemeire-Gwaku.
