A tide of pure energy is about to flood through Australia, as Bob Marley’s Original Wailers announce their most anticipated Australian tour to date, the Movement Of The People tour, in Sydney on Thursday November 26.
The show will feature a retrospective celebration of the Exodus album, voted by Time Magazine as the most important album of the 20th century. Bob Marley & the Wailers have sold more than 250 million albums in the last four decades, and his band helped propel this international success. Now Marley’s legendary musicians, together with other renowned reggae session men, have reformed as a tighter band under the title of The Original Wailers.
It was these celebrated musicians who gave Marley the platform for his explosive brand of roots rock reggae. Australian audiences will be delighted to learn that the world’s greatest reggae rockers, led by Junior Marvin and Al Anderson are heading to Australia to perform one of the most loved albums in history, Exodus. This album continues to convey the clearest possible impression of Bob Marley, the singer, the lyrist, the musician, the philosopher, the lover, and the icon of the people.
Junior Marvin and Al Anderson toured and recorded with Marley until his death in 1981. This places them among the rare few – the true torchbearers of his legacy – which they memorably helped to create. Now The Original Wailers, with Junior handling lead vocals, promise to recreate musical history as they continue to spread the message of “One Love.”
The Original Wailers with support TBC
