Jimmy Cliff, the international icon best known for taking reggae to the world, has confirmed a headline show at Tauranga’s ASB Arena, Baypark on Friday 27 March 2015. Iconic NZ artists, Herbs (Acoustic) and Ardijah join Jimmy Cliff onstage in Tauranga.

With a career spanning over 50 years, Jimmy Cliff continues to be a major influence on modern music with a slew of awards and accolades to his name; the Jamaican Order of Merit, Grammy Award winner 1986 and 2013, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee 2010. His live shows never falter in their ability to energise and uplift an audience, his golden tenor voice has lost none of its power.

Cliff popularised the genre with the soundtrack to the 1972 Jamaican movie The Harder They Come, in which he also starred. He is best known among mainstream audiences for songs such as "Sitting in Limbo", "You Can Get It If You Really Want", and "Many Rivers to Cross” as well as covers of Cat Stevens “Wild World” and Jonny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now” from the movie Cool Runnings, which was a number 1 hit in New Zealand, as was the party classic “Reggae Night”.

Rebirth, Cliff's first studio album in eight years was released in July 2012 and went on to win the Grammy for Best Reggae Album and a place at number 12 in Rolling Stone’s ‘50 Best Albums of 2012’.

A regular on festivals around the world, Jimmy Cliff has headlined both the WOMAD and RAGGAMUFFIN festivals in New Zealand and will be appearing at the legendary BYRON BAY BLUESFEST in Australia over Easter Weekend 2015.

This New Zealand concert represents a truly unique opportunity to experience the legend in his own headline show. More great artists will be added to the line-up and will be announced in the coming weeks. Don’t miss what will be a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience.

A very limited allocation of earlybird tickets will be available for the concert for $59 + BF. The pre-sale starts at 9am Weds 15 October and public on sale is from 9am, Thursday 16 October.
