Following the news of the rescheduled UK tour dates, The Wailers will return to the UK in March with a headline tour and a new legendary line-up. Steered by founder Aston ‘Familyman’ Barrett, and joined in solidarity with original Wailers’ band members Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, The Wailers will perform across some of the UK’s major cities.

Carrying its revolutionary sound and message to loyal fans around the world, the UK tour will see The Wailers play the iconic Legend album live on stage in its entirety, including their greatest hits Three Little Birds, I Shot The Sheriff, Jamming and many more.
