When Upper East based musical group; Rockcity, revealed that the second edition of their annual Sagl3 Concert was going to be held at the Bolgatanga Sports Stadium, I like many others had these doubts;
Is the place in proper shape for a musical concert?
Will people patronise it since that’s the first time a show is held there?
Won’t moving the venue from Bongo affect patronage?
What I saw on the 26th December 2018 is what I call a pleasant surprise. My doubts were all cleared. The show will go down in the history of Upper East showbiz as the most well organised and well attended Concert.
It was obvious that the team behind the artistes had decided to set a standard. The stage was beautifully set with a backdrop featuring photos of Rockcity. The venue was considerably well lit both for the stage, the front part of the crowd and where the traders sold their stuff.
The Ghana Police provided security at the event.
Th crowd was record crowd in Upper East showbiz. The inner perimeter was 3/4s full and large numbers of people hang around the outer part of the field. It was surprising that even as at 2 am when the show ended, most of the fans had disregarded the cold and stayed till the end. Sagl3 Concert II was a marvelous work done and Rockcity should be patted on the back.
Meanwhile ,the 2018 Sagl3 Concert was sponsored by Boss Energy Drink and The Rockcity Empire and powered by MTN with support from Tap Hotel, Legacy Kitchen,Mcclean View Restaurant,Premier Lodge,Talent Art,Timberland Bautique.
