Not many bands can claim genuine legend status. The Wailers comfortably claim their place in essential music history. Their music was, and is, culture-defining: rebel hearts with brave souls embodying the spirit of '70s era-defining reggae. The band play a special set featuring incredible cuts from Bob Marley's formidable back catalogue along with a string of their greatest classic hits. The Wailers are giving you a chance to be part of the legacy. In late 2020, The Wailers released the first single off their latest album: "One World, One Prayer," a powerful piece focused on unity, love and inclusion beyond 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 international titan Farruko, Jamaican superstar Shaggy, and continues the legacy of Bob Marley alongside the great man's daughter, Cedella Marley, and her son, Skip Marley. "One World," the album that marks the Wailers' return to the recording studios and the band's first album in 25 years, was nominated for a 2021 Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category. The essence of '70s rebellion and the true spirit of reggae performed by the people who helped forge the era-defining sound and by those raised under their tutelage. Living legends and reggae royalty carry the flame - now you can be a part of the legacy. When The Wailers come calling, you listen.
