Bob Marley’s band The Wailers are coming to Sheffield to perform the best-selling reggae album of all-time and you could be going to this unmissable concert for free, writes Graham Walker.
We’ve got 10 tickets to be won to see them at Sheffield’s O2 Academy on Sunday, September 29.
Lucky winners will see them perform greatest hits album Legend, featuring hit singles such as I Shot the Sheriff, Is This Love, No Woman, No Cry, Could You Be Loved, Buffalo Soldier, Get Up, Stand Up and One Love, Redemption Song, Three Little Birds, Waiting In Vain and Satisfy My Soul.
It was the twelfth album by Bob Marley and The Wailers - their second posthumous album - and has sold over 25 million copies.
The nucleus of The Wailers was formed in 1969, when Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, and Peter Tosh recruited the Barrett brothers - drummer Carly and bassist Aston “Family Man”, who remains the band’s anchor man today.
The Wailers, who recently shared the bill with The Stone Roses and Beady Eye, are into their fifth decade and the line up now also includes Keith Sterling on keyboards, Zeb “Drummy” Williams on drums, Audley Chisholm on rhythm Guitar, Cegee Victory on backing vocals and Aston Barrett Jr. on percussion/keys.
Stepping into Bob Marley’s shoes as lead vocalist is Duane “Danglin’” Anglin.
