The Wailers tickets

The Wailers tickets - The Wailers Tour

The Wailers Tour Schedule

The Wailers are practically synonymous with reggae after having spent years performing as the backing band for the legendary reggae icon Bob Marley and since his death branched out on their own to become one of the best and most popular reggae acts in the world. If you even remotely enjoy reggae music you owe it to yourself to check out one of the most popular, influential, and important acts in the genre while they are out on tour. It is not often that legitimate living legends come to town to perform live so do whatever it takes to make sure that you are in the crowd for the next Wailers performance. These shows tend to sell out quickly but, as always, StubHub provides you with access to tickets for all of the top selling concerts including tickets to every stop on the Wailers' current tour.

The Wailers begin their tour on May 4th at Sunfest in West Palm Beach, Florida and continue with a few more solo headlining shows in early May including a May 13th show at the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, New York and another on May 18th at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, Connecticut. The rest of May the Wailers will spend touring with Rusted Root beginning on the 22nd with a show at Stage AE in Pittsburgh followed by shows in Huntington, Atlantic City, Hampton, and Newport. The Wailers will also be taking part in the three day long Dark Star Jubilee Music Festival held at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio from May 23rd through the 25th. A final exciting show that the Wailers have set up for 2014 has them sharing the bill with 311 and the Urge at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Maryland Heights, Missouri on July 5th.


About the Band

The original Wailers was formed in Kingston, Jamaica in 1963 when Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer joined together to create influential reggae songs like Get Up, Stand Up and Stir It Up. Though Tosh and Wailer eventually left the band, The Wailers lived on as Bob Marley's backing band, touring all over the globe to adoring fans. They played groundbreaking concerts in East Africa and the far east and have ultimately played to over 24 million adoring fans worldwide. The current lineup is still anchored by Aston "Family Man" Barrett, the legendary reggae bassist, who leads The Wailers with a quiet control that lives up to his nickname. In the world of reggae music, there is no bigger name than Bob Marley and the Wailers. Though the world lost the genius of Bob Marley far too soon, the sound and spirit of his music lives on through the legendary Wailers Band. The lineup has changed through the years, but the sound remains the sames one of the most influential groups not only in reggae history, but maybe in rock history continues to tour and record music for their millions of fans worldwide.


Breakthrough

The Wailers first started performing together in 1963 but disbanded for a time due to the unwillingness of original members Neville Livingston and Peter Tosh to tour. A few years later, guitarist Bob Marley decided to get the band back together with him taking over responsibilities as the primary singer, guitarist, and songwriter. The band then came to be known as Bob Marley and the Wailers and became one of the most popular and influential musical acts of all time. Although Marley passed away years ago, the band continues to tour and record, now fronted by Aston "Family Man' Barrett who crafted many of the well known bass lines while performing alongside Bob Marley.


The Experience

You have heard all of the buzz and bought your tickets months ago and now, finally as the lights lower you begin to see the legendary band the Wailers making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the group pick up their instruments and approach the mics. A hush falls over the crowd as the Wailers thanks them and launches into a fan favorite like Could You Be Loved, Three Little Birds, Get Up Stand Up, I Shot the Sheriff, No Woman No Cry, or Redemption Song. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Always known to put on an unforgettable show, the Wailers know how to connect with their fans no matter how big or small the venue in which they are performing. The high energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along.


Trivia

Before being known as the Wailers the group went under several different names including the Teenagers, the Wailing Wailers, and the Wailing Rudeboys. Currently Bunny Wailer and Beverley Kelso are the only original surviving members of the Wailers.
