Legends Tour 2014
The Wailers are a reggae band formed by the remaining members of Bob Marley & The Wailers, following the death of Bob Marley in 1981.
The Wailers started as Bob Marley, Bunny Livingston and Peter Tosh. Following the demise of The Wailers, Bob Marley proceeded with his group Bob Marley & The Wailers, with the Wailers Band as the backing band, and the I Threes as backup vocalists. The Wailers Band consisted of among others bassist Aston "Family Man" Barrett and his brother, drummer Carlton (Carlie) Barrett, who had been members of Lee "Scratch" Perry's studio band, The Upsetters, with whom The Wailers had recorded some of their most notable songs.
The band continues to play live in concert, and in 2006 they played on 311's Summer Unity tour along with Pepper. In 2010, they toured again with 311, mostly focusing on the Pacific Northwest of the USA. As of 2006 the lineup included: Koolant Brown on lead vocals, Aston "Family Man" Barrett on bass, Keith Sterling on keys, Drummie Zeb on drums, Audley Chisholm on rhythm guitar and Cegee Victory on background vocals.
On the 30th anniversary of its release in 1984, The Wailers will be touring the US in 2014, performing the iconic album Legend in its entirety. Named by Time Magazine as the "Best Album of the 20th Century" and #46 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Legend is also the best-selling reggae album of all-time, with over 30 million copies sold worldwide.
Together with Bob Marley, The Wailers have sold over 250 million albums and have played to an estimated 24 million people across the globe. The anchor of the band is Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who was co-producer on many of Bob Marley's records and was responsible for almost all of the bass lines on Marley's hits.
