The Wailers 2014
Doors 7:30 pm; Show 8:00 pm
Avalon Theatre $45
Join the legendary Wailers as they return to the Avalon to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their iconic album Legend!
In addition to being the best-selling reggae album of all time (with over 30 million copies sold), Time Magazine has hailed Legend as the “Best Album of the 20th Century” while it reached #46 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 500 greatest albums of all time.
That’s really no surprise, is it? As staple of everyone's collection, Legend contains all The Wailers' best heartbeat rhythms that went on to inspire so much of what’s followed since, as evidenced by the enduring popularity of the “one-drop” reggae sound.
Together with the late, great 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 today’s band is Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who was co-producer on many of Marley's records and was responsible for almost all of the bass lines on Marley's hits.
Don't miss this opportunity to share the pure irie vibe with the band that helped to start it all!
