Capleton stole the show at Trench Town Rock

The 'fireman' kept the torch burning throughout his entire performance, with the hundreds in attendance acceding to his requests to "guh suh" and following whatever movement he did on stage.

Lighters were once Capleton's trademark stage show gimmick, but the rastaman has now moved along with technology. One of his request on Saturday night was for members of the crowd to turn on the flashlight of their phones and shine it; and this they did, with the venue transforming into reflecting prism.

Capleton's flames could not be cooled as his energetic performance was varied for the many different fans, as he entertained the crowd gathered for the celebration of the life of reggae legend Bob Marley, who spent most of his life in the Trench Town area.

In between songs, Capleton fired deadly discourse at some of the problems and issues that Jamaica is facing currently, especially crime and child molestation.

Capleton opened his act with Don't Change and then it was Fire Time, after which he verbally chastised the child molesters, before deliver Burning You.

Call Me On The Telephone was next, after which he delivered Slew Dem, Mi Nuh Lotion Man, Dem No Like Me and Bad Mind A Go Kill Dem before closing with Small World.
