Not many bands can claim true legend status. The Wailers comfortably claim their place in essential musical history. Their music was and is culture-defining: rebellious hearts with courageous souls that embody the spirit of reggae of the 70s. Now The Wailers are returning to the UK in 2022 for a series of concerts that will begin on February 25th in Birmingham at the O2 Institute and end on March 6th in Bristol at the O2 Academy. This is a unique opportunity to experience real roots, rock and reggae with the legendary band The Wailers!
The band will play a special set with incredible cuts by Bob Marley and The Wailers, songs from Legend and One World and other greatest hits. The Wailers give you the chance to become part of the legacy. Aston Barrett Jr., himself reggae king as the son of the irrepressible “Familyman”, carries the flame for The Wailers in a show that is simply not to be missed.
In late 2020, The Wailers released their first single from the album, “One World, One Prayer”, a powerful piece that focuses on unity, love and inclusion across cultural differences. Produced and written by Emilio Estefan, “One World, One Prayer” mixes Jamaican reggae with the sounds of the urban Latin genre. The track features the international titan Farruko, the Jamaican superstar Shaggy and carries on the legacy of Bob Marley along with the great man’s daughter, Cedella Marley, and her son Skip Marley.
One World, the album that marked the Wailers’ return to the recording studio and the band’s first album in 25 years, was nominated for a Grammy® 2021 for Best Reggae Album.
The essence of the rebellion of the 70s, the true spirit of reggae, presented by the people who helped shape the time-defining sound and by those who grew up under their guidance. Living legends, reggae royalty that carry the flame – now you can be part of the legacy. When the wailers call, you listen.
