One of the first reggae shows of the year promises to be a blockbuster, as Wayne Marshall joins Jo Mersa - the grandson of Bob Marley and son of Stephen Marley - and established reggae artists Christopher Ellis and Black-Am-I for the first stop in their sweeping American tour.
In keeping with a theme, Ellis is the youngest son of the late reggae music great Alton Ellis. The "Ghetto Youth International Tour" will made its first stop on Thursday, April 9.
Marshall will be appearing in support of both his latest album, Tru Colors, and the incredible collaboration album, Ghetto Youths International presents Set Up Shop, Vol. 2.
That collaborative effort features all of the artists on this ticket, plus the artist Cham. Wayne, who will celebrate his birthday during the Philadelphia stop, said he was looking forward to providing his fans with known material and peeks of his evolving sound.
