ONE week after announcing the cancellation of his Staying Alive Tour, deejay Anthony B's management says the artiste will hit the road in May.

Trudi Williams, a spokesperson for Master One Productions, told Splash that Anthony B will kick off an extensive tour at the Jammin Festival in Colombia next month.

She says he will then play the European summer festivals. These include the Dour Festival in Belgium on July 21, Outlook Festival in Croatia on August 29; and the Rototom Festival in Spain, which also takes place in August.

Anthony B was initially scheduled to start touring on March 13, but Williams says those shows were rescheduled to "settle some legal matters".

The gangly deejay, whose hit songs include Fire Pon Rome and Raid The Barn, is among the top touring acts in contemporary reggae.

Late last year, he cancelled European shows citing exhaustion. In February, he and several members of his road crew were arrested in Georgia and slapped with ganja possession charges.

Williams would not comment on the latest developments in that case.
