Sting & Shaggy Free Concert, Heroes' Square, 24 November
Iconic artists Sting and Shaggy are giving a free concert next Saturday on 24 November at 6 pm at Budapest’s Heroes Square to celebrate the 30th birthday of one of the Hungarian lotteries, Hatoslottó.

Legendary British singer Sting and Jamaican-American Shaggy will perform at the free celebration next Sunday following the warm-up concert of Hungarian group Punnany Massif.

The artists released an island-flavored collaborative album called 44/876 on April 20 this year and now they are on a joint European tour. On the road, the musicians are performing both separately and together.

They play songs from the new album and their bands explore each other’s most celebrated hits including “Every Breath You Take,” “Englishman in New York,” “Message in a Bottle,” “It Wasn’t Me,” “Mr. Boombastic” and “Angel.”

The pair initially joined creative forces to record their new song “Don’t Make Me Wait”—a tribute to the Caribbean sounds that influenced them both—and ended up recording an entire album full of joy, melody and uplifting music.

Date and time: 24 November, 6 pm

Online since 2014, this source states its aim as "to provide a complete, unbiased picture of Hungary”. It continues by acknowledging this “does not necessarily mean that our writers do not have their own opinions, sometimes reflected to a degree in the articles they publish”, and it's really worth readers keeping that in mind. Another stated aim is to become ‘the leading English-language news portal of Hungary’, a position held for 18 years by good old independent XpatLoop! Still our team has no issue with positively highlighting one or two useful articles published by Hungary Today here with permission for your interest.
