Jimmy Cliff tickets - Jimmy Cliff Tour

Jimmy Cliff 2014 Tour Schedule

Get excited to hear the mellow and upbeat roots-reggae songs of Jimmy Cliff, arguably one of the most famous Jamaican musicians in the world. Often compared to the iconic Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff has remained a great musical force in the reggae world. He is the only living musician to hold the Order of Merit, a prestigious honor granted by the Jamaican government for achievement in arts and sciences, reflecting Cliff's prolific career as a Jamaican artist.

So let the good vibes flow through your body as you jam to Cliff's greatest roots and reggae hits when he comes to the Hollywood Bowl on July 20th. Embrace the balmy air in the world famous outdoor theater and dance and sing along with Jimmy Cliff's classic reggae beats. Jimmy Cliff doesn't make it to the States very often, so make sure you don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime performance and you're your tickets on StubHub today!


Jimmy Cliff Background

While growing up in St. James, Jamaica, Jimmy Cliff began writing songs when he was just a young boy in primary school. At the encouragement of his parents, he continued his education, but deep down he knew that all he wanted to do was create great music. So in the 1960s, he began to seek out music producers and tried to record some of his songs, all without any success because of his young age. But all of a sudden, his single "Hurricane Hattie" became a huge hit when he was just 14 years old.

After that, Cliff knew that pursuing music would be his main goal in life. He cranked out many more singles that became hits in Jamaica, such as "Kings of Kings", "Dearest Beverly", "Miss Jamaica", and "Pride and Passion". In 1964, when Cliff was just 16, he was chosen to be a representative of Jamaica at the World Fair. The exposure he received at this event led to his record deal with Island Records and his move to the UK. Despite this big move, his career never took off in the '60s, although he did earn the admiration of major rock artists like Bob Dylan, who called Cliff's "Vietnam" the best protest song he had ever heard.

While he continued to create music in the 1970s, Cliff also became an actor, starring in one of the best reggae films of all time, The Harder They Come. After releasing a string of albums, one of his songs, "Trapped", earned significant recognition when Bruce Springsteen added it to his live set during his 1981 tour. In 1985, Cliff won a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album, a major award that helped him establish an American audience. This moment, however, was the last major success he had in the States. Despite never achieving star status in the U.S., Cliff's songs still topped the mainstream pop charts in other countries, such as France, Brazil, and the UK. His music has also been featured in countless films, such as Cocktail, Cool Runnings, and the Lion King.

This famous reggae artist is one of Jamaica's prized jewels, and seeing him perform his hit songs is nothing short of a spectacular experience. Make sure you get to see this Jamaican legend perform live at the Hollywood Bowl and grab your tickets from StubHub today!


Biggest Hits

Throughout his prolific career, Cliff has had several hit singles that have topped music charts around the world. His song "I Can See Clearly Now" peaked at number 18 in the US and his song "Wild World" peaked at number eight in the UK. His other popular songs include "Wonderful World, Beautiful People", "Vietnam", "We All Are One", "Hakuna Matata", and "Reggae Night". So unleash your laid-back vibe and get tickets to see this reggae legend perform live!


Trivia

Jimmy Cliff's first producer, Leslie Kong, was the owner of an ice cream shop in Kingston, Jamaica. The store also happened to sell records, so Cliff got the idea of asking Kong to produce records with him. Kong agreed and they worked together until Kong's in 1971.


The Experience

As you sit in the audience of a Jimmy Cliff concert, you might just feel a warm Jamaican breeze sift through your hair and hear the calm rhythm of crashing waves on the shore. If you want a taste of the laid-back Jamaica life, this is your chance. Going to a Jimmy Cliff concert is as close as you will get to Jamaica without hopping on a plane and heading to the Caribbean.
