The Original Wailers continue to do Bob Marley proud, nearly 25 years after his untimely death. During his time with Marley in the '70s, the Original Wailers' Al Anderson practically wrote the book on roots rock reggae, which is why it's no surprise that he's still jamming in 2014. Performing classics like "Get Up, Stand Up" and "No Woman, No Cry" on tour in 2013, the Wailers had fans feeling irie and lighters held high, setting big expectations for another round of good vibes on the road in 2014.
Following Bob Marley's death in 1981, Al Anderson, Marley's lead guitarist from his solo work in '70s, formed the Original Wailers to pay tribute to reggae's most beloved icon. As the vocalist on iconic tracks like "No Woman, No Cry," Anderson helped propel the Wailers to international fame, continuing to work extensively with Marley throughout the decade. In 2012, the Original Wailers released their first-ever EP of new material, earning a Grammy nomination and kicking off a headlining tour. The band continues to keep Bob Marley's music and legacy alive, treating fans to another US tour in 2014.
FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:
"Top Grade Reggae, T.O.W. are incredible, talk is cheap, just get to a show, then you will understand why they are the best."
"Great to see Al hitting those sweet notes on some classic Bob Marley songs. Tight band, good rhythm, fun time, long encore."
"It was a wonderful show with lots of old school reggae tunes, but what I liked more was the original music from the current band. They came alive when they played their own tunes...it was really fun!"
