PUBLISHED: 20:00 17 September 2018
A Jamaican ska group will be performing in Bristol next month.
Toots And The Maytals will be at the O2 Academy in Frogmore Street at 7pm on October 17.
The Grammy-nominated band are one of the most successful, ska, reggae and rocksteady groups in the world.
Formed in the early 1960s, Toots And The Maytals have released more than 20 studio albums.
Their 1968 song Do The Reggay was the first to give the genre its modern title name – reggae.
Other hits include Funky Kingston, Monkey Man and 54-46 Was My Number.
However, their music stretches far beyond the reggae fraternity as they have previously toured with the likes of The Who, Sheryl Crow and The Rolling Stones.
They will be supported by reggae artist Captain Accident.
Tickets, priced £33.70, are available online.
