The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Mere days af­ter he was crowned the 2017 Road March King of Saint Lu­cia with his hit song “Sully”, Ricky T was back on the road to con­tinue the ‘Freaky Girls’ tour he be­gan one year ago in July 2016.

The tour con­tin­ued on the heels of a very suc­cess­ful Saint Lu­cia Car­ni­val sea­son. In ad­di­tion to win­ning his eighth Road March ti­tle, Ricky T was also crowned the Power Soca Monarch with the Stu­dio 758/Strato­sphere Muzic-pro­duced song “Drunk­ard”. That win brought the num­ber of Power Soca Monarch ti­tles he now has to six.

Ricky T also per­formed at a num­ber of shows for Saint Lu­cia Car­ni­val in­clud­ing at its launch event, Epic Wed­nes­day, as well as at Cooler Fete, U4Ria, Sexy In Black, Rem­edy and Aura.

Un­for­tu­nately, a planned per­for­mance at Wet Fete had to be missed when the show was moved, clash­ing with a pre­vi­ously booked ap­pear­ance at Soca On De Hill in Bar­ba­dos.

Ricky T closed out the July leg of the ‘Freaky Girls’ tour with per­for­mances in St Eus­tatius, Bar­ba­dos and An­tigua.

In Au­gust the tour con­tin­ues at five events in Canada for Carib­ana. Af­ter that the artiste is ex­pected to per­form at Crop Over in Bar­ba­dos where he will also be on the road with Krave Car­ni­val Band be­fore re­turn­ing to Saint Lu­cia on Au­gust 10 for a CPL show at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground.

Ricky T is also sched­uled to per­form in Con­necti­cut and at the Mon­treal In­ter­na­tional Reg­gae Fes­ti­val along­side reg­gae icons Sanchez and Tanya Stephens as well as Ul­ti­mate Re­jects and Linky First. On Au­gust 20 he makes a tour stop at the Karuk­era One Love Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Guade­loupe be­fore jet­ting off to Lon­don for the Kas­sav Car­ni­val Week­end and the Hot Car­ni­val Party – Beach Edi­tion be­fore be­ing on the road for Not­ting Hill Car­ni­val on Au­gust 28.

The ‘Freaky Girls’ tour has dates well into 2018 and in­cludes shows dur­ing Labour Day in New York and at Mi­ami Car­ni­val.

Saint Lu­cian soca artiste Ricky T has a packed sched­ule of per­for­mances well into 2018 as part of the ‘Freaky Girls’ tour.
