The Wailers US Tour

The greatest living exponents of reggae music The Wailers, will be continuing their US tour and heading to Redondo Beach, Saturday, March 13 and to Santa Ana, Sunday, March 14 (the tour resumes in April where they'll hit other markets across the US- see dates below). The tour comes hot on the heels of last year's smash-hit "Exodus Tour" that saw the band playing the classic 1977 album in its entirety to sold-out venues in 20 countries across the world.

The Wailers will be using the tour to bring more attention to their "I Went Hungry" campaign (www.iwenthungry.org), which donates unused funds from the band's daily hospitality riders, directly to the United Nations' World Food Program. To date, the charity has already fed over 650,000 people since its inception last year.

Original member Aston "Familyman" Barrett, a revered innovator joined The Wailers in 1969, quickly becoming singer-songwriter Bob Marley's right-hand man and musical director. On record and on stage, his inimitable style became an essential part of the Wailers' sound. Following Marley's death in 1981, "Fams" took the reins as the band's leader, spearheading performances to adoring crowds the world over, as well as the band's involvement with the fight against global hunger. "For decades The Wailers have been about spreading a positive message to our audience," says Fams. "With the campaign, we want to spread that message beyond the audience so even if these people can't feel it musically, they will feel it spiritually. I can't think of a better way to give thanks than giving back to the people."
