Join music icon Jimmy Cliff as he takes you through an evening of classic songs and the unforgettable stories behind them.
Says Jimmy Cliff, “With my recent GRAMMY® win and the 40th anniversary of The Harder They Come, I want to give fans something different, a rare and intimate look at Jimmy Cliff. Through the years, I’ve been blessed with memorable experiences that accompany the songs I’ve created and I am excited to share these stories on my ‘Many Rivers Crossed Tour’.
In addition to classics including “Wonderful World, Beautiful People,” “Many Rivers To Cross,” “I Can See Clearly Now,” “You Can Get It If You Really Want,” “The Harder They Come,” and “Breakout,” Cliff will perform songs from his acclaimed, GRAMMY®-winning (Best Reggae Album) 2012 album, REBIRTH.
REBIRTH paired Jimmy Cliff with the award-winning producer and punk legend Tim Armstrong, who produced the album, as well as Cliff’s 2011 “Sacred Fire” EP. Rolling Stone magazine hailed Cliff’s hotly anticipated return to form as his “best music in decades” and named REBIRTH one of 2012′s top albums. REBIRTH debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Reggae chart and held the top position for five weeks straight.
In conjunction with the “Many Rivers Crossed Tour,” film distributor Syndctd Entertainment (www.syndctd-entertainment.com) and International Films Management will re-release the classic film The Harder They Come, starring Jimmy Cliff, as a special, one-night-only theatrical event across North America on September 5, 2013. This year marks the film’s 40th anniversary, and to commemorate the milestone, Syndctd has invited fans from around the world to participate in a theatrical poster redesign contest. Movie theatre and contest information can be found on the film’s official website, www.thehardertheycome.com.
