Droop Lion will be embarking on a US tour in June 2018 where he will open for Toots Hibbert and the Maytals.

“Toots Hibbert is a real international icon so, I am looking forward to this tour on a monumental scale because of what it will mean for reggae music,” he said.

Droop Lion, who has a fan base in Europe, will return to his familiar stomping grounds when he tours the continent and the UK in February and March 2018 alongside Junior Kelly to promote his Idealogies album.

“The response to the album has been incredible; the radio is supporting the Leaders Sell Out track. We will be shooting two new videos within the next six weeks for Leaders Sell Out and another single from the album,” said Droop Lion.

He is known for the singles including Screaming and Freeway. The latter was inspired by the Tivoli Gardens incursion in 2010 where more than 70 people were killed.

Freeway is not just about the atrocity and the deaths in Tivoli Gardens, though… It's about all the senseless killings in this world, the whole thing is complex. I want to stop bloodshed all over the world,” he added.
