RIDGEFIELD, Conn. - On the 30th anniversary of its start, The Wailers will be in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Sunday, May 18, at 8 p.m.

They will perform the iconic album "Legend" in its entirety, which features the bands biggest hits of all time, including “I Shot The Sheriff,” “Redemption Song,” “Jamming” and many more. The special guest for the concert is Makua.

There is no more legendary band in Jamaican music history than Bob Marley and The Wailers. Formed in 1969, the group has created an extraordinary body of work whose echoes are heard in every corner of the world today.

Original members included Marley, who was hailed as “The Artist of the 20th Century”, along with his vocal partners Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh, alongside the ground-breaking rhythm section of the Barrett brothers with Carlton on drums and Aston “Family Man” on bass.

Today, Aston leads The Wailers as it continues its worldwide campaign of promoting peace, love and equality through the message of reggae and Rastafari.

The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield.
