AS the country prepares for the musical onslaught of US-based rhythm and blues reggae group Common Kings, the reaction by the Fiji public on social media networks has manager Tatua Reed scratching his head in astonishment.
"We're just blown away by the response because we had no idea the Common Kings were so popular in Fiji," he told The Fiji Times yesterday.
Mr Reed says the Common Kings have been overwhelmed by the response received across the Pacific.
"The band is a real mix — lead singer Junyer King was born in Samoa, guitarist Mata is from American Samoa, drummer Rome was born in California and bassist Ivan was born in Suva, Fiji," he said.
"And because of this, our Pacific tour has been like a homecoming which has been reflected by the warm reception we've received right across from Hawaii to Samoa and Australia and New Zealand and no doubt in Fiji too."
Tickets for the Common Kings Suva show on October 31 go on sale from today at Broadway Fiji Ltd at 5 Holland St in Toorak, Vodafone Triangle store and Communications Fiji Ltd headquarters at 231 Waimanu Rd.
Tickets for the show are $15 and $20.
Tickets for the Nadi concert at Prince Charles Park are $17 and can be purchased at the Vodafone store on the main street.
