The revolutionary spirit of Bob Marley is alive in America, and the Wailers are about to make their live contribution to the struggle. As America's citizens take to the streets in protest and Occupy their cities, it is the right time for the Wailers to add their music to the people's voice.
The heart of the Wailers, bassist and musical director Aston "Family Man" Barrett, not only co-founded the best known line-up of the band (after the departure of singers Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailers), but was an intimate part of Marley's creative process. Aston was the man Bob trusted to develop songs with, including not simply a song's rhythmic bedrock but lyrical ideas as well.
On this special "Revolution” tour, the Wailers will perform a themed show, much as they did when they performed the whole of the "Exodus" album onstage for that Album of the Century's Anniversary.
Family Man Barrett has been playing with the Wailers for forty years and has helped pave for the way to establishing the band as the world's most prominent reggae band: having sold over 250 million albums worldwide.
The concert will be held at the House of Blues San Diego on January 11, 2012. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the show begins at 8:30 PM. House of Blues is located in downtown San Diego at 1055 5th Ave. Google Map.
