Get up, stand up for reggae in Garhoud…

Bob Marley’s partners in crime, The Wailers have announced a special one-off performance at The Irish Village.

The show on Friday, November 19 will see the reggae act, featuring Al Anderson, play a back catalogue of iconic hits on the outdoor stage at the popular venue in Garhoud at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium.

Formed over 50 years ago by Marley alongside Bunny Walker, Peter Tosh and the Barrett Brothers (Carlton and Aston), the Jamaican outfit are responsible for some of the best-loved reggae music to ever come out of the country.

Hits like No Woman No Cry, Buffalo Soldier, I Shot The Sheriff and Jamming will no doubt feature across their set.

Other instant hits include Three Little Birds, Get Up, Stand Up, Redemption Song and Could You Be Loved.
