Fresh off his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Grammy-winner and reggae singer Jimmy Cliff has added dates to his most extensive North American tour in twenty years. Although, there appears to be no NYC (or just New York state) dates in sight, unless they are added later? I really hope to see Jimmy Cliff perform again, last time that happened was a few years ago at a free festival in Poughkeepsie, NY. If I knew he was going to play DC at the end of the April, I would have re-scheduled my vacation around that!
In addition to previously announced performances at Bonnaroo, Wolf Trap and the Hollywood Bowl, Cliff will appear at Lollapalooza in August (date to be announced), Denver’s Mile High Fest, and San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival. Cliff will also perform at the 40th Anniversary Earth Day Climate Rally on the National Mall in Washington D.C. on April 25, with Sting, John Legend, and others.
