After sell-out shows at Tanks Arts Centre in 2013, this legend of reggae is returning again in 2015.
With a legacy stretching back nearly 50 years, this true reggae legend is still standing as one of the prime movers & continuing shapers of modern music.

With timeless hits including “Wonderful World, Beautiful People” - “I Can See Clearly Now” - “The Harder They Come” - “You Can Get It If You Really Want” & “Many Rivers to Cross”, his songs opened the door for reggae’s journey to being a universal sound, embraced and adapted in cultures around the world.

Jimmy Cliff is considered one of the most influential artists in global culture and is still a forceful voice of power and conscience. He is revered by fellow artists and critics alike. In fact, Paul Simon covered Jimmy’s 1970 song ‘Vietnam’ in his electrifying 2011 concerts. It was the song that Dylan called ‘the greatest protest song ever written’. Having recently celebrated a milestone anniversary for The Harder They Come, this incredible songsmith continues to work non-stop, touring rigorously.
When The Harder They Come was released in 1972 in Jamaica, it was an instant national sensation.

It also gained great acclaim in Europe and the USA, exposing reggae music to listeners outside of its homeland. Jimmy was already a huge star in Jamaica at the time, in fact, his first hit Hurricane Hattie was released when he was only 14. Since then he has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, from the Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello to Annie Lennox. His music has also been performed by artists such as Willie Nelson, New Order, Cher and Fiona Apple, to name a few.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Cliff released Rebrth, in 2012 – winning the Grammy Award for Best Reggae album. “I have not become the artist I believe I am,” he told Rolling Stone last year, “I want to become a stadium act!”. Rebirth is the next step in that direction, so be warned – tickets to this show are sure to sell out. Tickets for Jimmy Cliff’s last shows at Tanks sold out months in advance, so get in quick!
