Best known for tracks such as ‘Shine Eye Girl’, ‘Wicked Intentions’, ‘When You’re Young and in Love’ and ‘Under Mi Sensi’, he has had major crossover tracks such as ‘Here I Come’ and ‘Tribal Base’ (his collaboration with Rebel MC and Tenor Fly’) hit the Official UK Charts, collaborated with acts such as Snoop Dogg, Bounty Killer and Mr Vegas – and his album ‘Acousticalevy’ was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2016.
With both acts being trailblazers not just on the Reggae scene but the music scene at large and having a long back-catalogue of classic, fan-favourite tracks that have truly stood the test of the time, this is a tour not to be missed!
