On June 16, in celebration of Father’s Day, Jamaicans across the island will enjoy a night of soulful melodies at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre as Romain Virgo presents ‘The Gentle Man In Concert’, powered by Johnnie Walker.

The reggae star is set to perform tracks from his latest album, The Gentle Man such as Been There Before, Switch On You, Red Dress ,and Driver, which have garnered significant attention on the reggae scene. The album features collaborations with esteemed artistes including Masicka, Patoranking, Jesse Royal, and Capleton.

Fresh from a successful US tour and electrifying performances in St Ann, Montego Bay, and St Elizabeth, Virgo is ready to make a lasting impression in Kingston.

“The Gentle Man Tour has been a huge success so far, and I’m thrilled to bring it to Kingston on Father’s Day,” he shared with The Gleaner. “Fathers need something to smile about; we must show them love and appreciation. I want them to see that they’re important to society... we need more fathers and father figures around to help strengthen the growth of society,” Virgo said.

“It’s a special opportunity to connect with the people who have supported me from the start, and I’m grateful and excited to share this experience with them. They make this event truly special,” he added .

The concert’s venue will be transformed into a sophisticated setting, offering an evening of refinement and entertainment. And, as Virgo prepares to create magic on stage, the title sponsor Johnnie Walker will also be making magic with the setup and experience of the show.

Junior Brand Manager Lasana Wilson highlighted, “Johnnie Walker is a premium brand for those who appreciate life’s finer things and strive for success; this aligns perfectly with Romain Virgo’s journey and the brand’s ethos. Johnnie Walker will engage patrons with an ultra-premium lounge experience in the VIP area. While Romain Virgo’s performance will be the main entertainment for the night, those in the exclusive Johnnie Walker VIP lounge can enjoy a premium ambience alongside his music.”


Patrons who purchase a VIP ticket will have access to premium Johnnie Walker cocktails throughout the night, but the event caters to an all-rounder experience for everyone. Attendees, in general, will also have Johnnie Walker specials offered to them all night from the general bar.

Virgo expressed his gratitude for the partnership with Johnnie Walker, noting that being an ambassador is an honour. “We align well, especially with pushing The Gentle Man and everything Johnnie Walker stands for. And so to have them on board in executing such a show in this fashion, that we have already seen in all the other parishes that we performed so far, it’s a blessing, and it’s an experience that I know my fans and the people who look up to me and the people who look up to Jamaica will appreciate.”

The ‘Romain Virgo as The Gentle Man in Concert’ promises an unforgettable experience with special surprises in store.

“There will be surprises at the show, but I can’t give away too much – that would spoil the fun! But I can promise that the entire experience will blow away everyone attending the show. From the talented artistes who will perform, to the excitement on stage, it will be a total package. And for the people of Kingston, especially my loyal supporters, they’re in for something extraordinary on Father’s Day,” Virgo added.

Gates open at 6 p.m. with showtime at 9 p.m.
