The Last Ever Tour From Toots and the Maytals, has been announced for Dun Laoghaire Harbour. One of the true architects of reggae, Toots and the Maytals, brought the reggae sound to the masses with some of the biggest and pioneering hits in reggae history such as ‘Do The Reggay’ (the 1968 single is credited as the first song ever to feature the word ‘reggae’ and giving the genre its name), ‘Pressure Drop’, ‘54-46 (That’s My Number)’, ‘Sweet and Dandy’, ‘Monkey Man’, ‘Funky Kingston’ and ‘Reggae Got Soul’. A five time Grammy nominee, Toots and The Maytals won the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Reggae album with "True Love" with all-star guests on the 2004 album ranging from legends like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to No Doubt, the Roots, and Phish’s Trey Anastasio. Toots introduces Droop Lion and Captain Accident plus special guests with The Selector, Lee Scratch Perry. Legendary ska-punk band, The Selecter, with Pauline Black and Arthur 'Gaps' Hendrickson, have been celebrating their 40th anniversary and four decades of 2-Tone on tour across the US and Europe ahead of their Dublin date. Their new album 'Daylight' is out now. Regarded with awe throughout the music world Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original reggae producers and artists of all time. From his early days in Kingston Jamaica through to his production of some Wailers classics and lots more, Perry’s innovative style marks him out as one of Reggaes true originals!
