Tarrus Riley is On TourFriday, September 12, 2014
KINGSTON, Jamaica: This weekend, Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum will be presenting On Tour with Tarrus Riley, which will see the reggae singer perform on four concert dates islandwide from September 12-15.
On Tour, produced by One Nation Event Entertainment Limited, in its first instalment will see Tarrus Riley bringing his global Love Situation Tour to Jamaica for the first time. Love Situation is the title of Riley's fifth studio album, and features production by Dean Fraser, Juke Boxx Productions, Chimney Records and Michum Khan Chin. The legendary U-Roy and Big Youth are amongst the guest appearances on the album, which also includes Konshens and American rapper Mr Cheeks.
Speaking on the On Tour concept, Cecil Smith, group brand manager for Rums at J Wray & Nephew Limited expressed: "Jamaicans and tourists alike are always craving for more live music. Our nation is one of the greatest producers of music worldwide, yet there is a void of live performances in a safe and secure environment for music lovers to enjoy regularly.
"On Tour will allow for Jamaican musicians to actually tour the island with their latest music over a four-day period monthly, and perform for their fans. It's a great opportunity for Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum and One Nation Event Entertainment Limited to showcase that Jamaica's entertainment industry can facilitate multiple-date artiste performances consecutively, as done with tours outside of the island in mostly North America, Europe, and Asia," he said.
The Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum presents On Tour with Tarrus Riley kicks off at Club Ville in Ocho Rios on September 12, then makes its way to Pier 1 in Montego Bay on September 13, before making final stops in Portmore and Kingston on September 14 and 15 at Club Famous and the Little Theatre, respectively.
