Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff to perform in Cairns in 2013
Tanks Arts Centre has confirmed reggae icon Jimmy Cliff for a one night only show in March 2013 in support of his new album Rebirth.
As a legend in the world of both reggae and pop, the sweet tenor is one of the most recognisable vocalists and songwriters to emerge from Jamaica and one of only two reggae musicians (along with Bob Marley) to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
With 29 albums under his belt, Cliff is returning to his roots with his new album Rebirth and is hitting Australia in support of its release next year.
While Rebirth is named after what Jimmy perceives as his own artistic revival, the reggae pioneer has never really been away, working with a who’s-who of other rock legends over the years, including the Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello and Annie Lennox, his songs covered by the likes of Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen, Cher, New Order and Fiona Apple.
Jimmy Cliff performs at Tanks Arts Centre on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Tickets are $60, on sale now from ticketlink.com.au or 1300 855 835. This is an MA15+ show.
