The Wailers + Tough Enough – O2 Academy, Leeds – 6/7/12

A night of sweet reggae music with the latest version of the Wailers. This show could have easily fallen into tribute band territory but the enthusiasm of the crowd and the musicianship of the band kept it from being a cabaret act. In some ways of course, it was a tribute – to Bob Marley’s songwritting genius.

I was only 15 when Bob Marley played his last gig in the UK so never had the chance to see him perform. You can’t help but think how big he would have been if the cancer that started in his big toe had been delt with properly.

The support band (?Tough Enough from Leeds) played some reggae faves and had great vocal harmonies between the 2 singers. Worth seeing again for sure.
