The Wailers in Concert

Please Note: This event is from 2015.
Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents the legendary reggae group, The Wailers, in concert on Wednesday, February 11, 2015.
The Wailers have been touring for 45 years, performing live before an estimated 24 million people. Their 1977 album with Bob Marley, Exodus, has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making it the top-selling reggae album of all time. The album was named by Time Magazine as the “Best Album of the 20th Century” and Rolling Stone ranked it #46 on their "500 Greatest Albums of All Time."
The Wailers formed in 1969, and have been promoting peace, love and equality through the message of reggae and Rastafari ever since. The nucleus of the band formed when Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, and Peter Tosh recruited the Barrett brothers — bassist Aston and drummer Carlton — to play on such hits as “Trenchtown Rock” and “Lively Up Yourself.”
Besides their innovative work with Bob Marley, the Wailers have recorded or played with a host of international performers such as Sting, Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, Peter Tosh and Alpha Blondy, just to name a few.
Aston “Family Man” Barrett, the anchor of the band, co-produced and provided bass lines for the majority of Marley’s records. He was recognized by Bass Player Magazine with a Lifetime Achievement Award as one of the world’s great bassists.
Admission: General admission tickets, standing room only, are $28 per person.
