Tour in support of the band’s I WENT HUNGRY Charity with over 150,000 people fed to date

Legendary reggae group THE WAILERS will be heading out for a second round on their sold-out nationwide “Exodus Tour,” with a date in Anaheim on July 30 at House of Blues. The show will feature a full performance of the classic 1977 album of the same name, Exodus, named “Album of the Century” by TIME Magazine, and featuring the anthem “One Love,” deemed “Song of the Millennium” by the BBC. The Wailers will be using the tour to bring more attention to their “I Went Hungry,” which donates unused funds from the band’s hospitality riders directly to the United Nation’s World Food Program. To date, the charity has already fed over 120,000 people.

Formed in the late 1960s in Jamaica, the Wailers have gone on to become the world’s most popular and well-known reggae group of all time, selling 250 million albums and playing to an estimated 24 million people worldwide. The group is now led by bassist and musical director Aston “Family Man” Barrett, the group’s sole surviving founder and driving musical force, who was well known as Bob Marley’s right hand-man during the singer’s lifetime. The group continues to tour around the world year after year, spreading their undeniable message of peace, understanding and defiance. Don’t miss Marley’s messengers as they provide the soundtrack to another great summer.
