Jimmy Cliff British Shows

Two dates from reggae icon

Jimmy Cliff has confirmed two rare British shows as part of a wider European tour.

Jimmy Cliff remains an indisputable reggae icon. The singer wrote some of the genre’s most enduring songs, and through his work in ‘The Harder They Come’ became one of Jamaica’s first film stars.

Performing at Glastonbury last year, it was clear that the reggae icon still had plenty of power left in those pipes. Now Jimmy Cliff has surprised fans by announcing two rare British shows, set to take place later this year.

Hitting London’s indigO2 at The O2 London on May 18th, Jimmy Cliff will then play Birmingham’s Ballroom on May 20th.

The iconic singer is currently putting the finishing touches to his new album. ‘RE.BIRTH’ is almost complete, with Jimmy Cliff preparing to release his first full length in seven years this summer.

American punk icon Tim Armstrong – of Rancid fame – has been on hand to collaborate with the singer. Watch a trailer below and then check out the full list of dates after the jump.
