The Wailers perform 'Legend'
On the 30th anniversary of its release in 1984, The Wailers will be touring the US in 2014, performing the iconic album Legend in its entirety. Named by Time Magazine as the "Best Album of the 20th Century" and #46 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Legend is also the best-selling reggae album of all-time, with over 30 million copies sold worldwide.

Together with Bob Marley, The Wailers have sold over 250 million albums and have played to an estimated 24 million people across the globe. The anchor of the band is Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who was co-producer on many of Bob Marley's records and was responsible for almost all of the bass lines on Marley's hits.
Perform "Survival"
Perform "Survival"
Survival is an album with an outwardly militant theme. Some speculate that this was due in part to criticism Marley received for the laid-back, ganja-soaked atmosphere of his previous release, "Kaya", which seemed to sidetrack the urgency of his message. In the song "Africa Unite", Marley proclaims Pan-African solidarity. The song "Zimbabwe" is a hymn dedicated to later-independent Rhodesia. The song was performed at Zimbabwe's Independence Celebration in 1980, just after the official declaration of Zimbabwe's independence. "Zimbabwe" is seen as an unofficial national song.
with special guest "Wailers Historian" Roger Steffens
Reggae historian Roger Steffens invites you to join him for an exhilarating journey into the musical history of the royal family of reggae, The Wailers. The evening will begin with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Survival Tour (1979-1980), which ended up being their second-to-last tour together. Steffens is the only historian to join Marley on the road, and he is now generously opening his vault to share exclusive tour photos, rehearsal footage and an interview with the band’s opening act, Betty Wright.

Throughout his 40-minute set, Steffens will share his experiences of being on the road in 1979 and give insights into Bob Marley's phenomenal hypnotic power which has endured for more than four decades. If you are a music lover, this is a unique opportunity to get a first hand glimpse into the inner workings of the life and personality of a legend.

Following this incredible multimedia presentation, the Wailers will perform the iconic Survival album in its entirety, with songs like, “So Much Trouble in the World,” “Africa Unite" and "Ride Natty Ride.”
