The Original Wailers and Ozomatli with Chali 2na will perform at Mandalay Bay Beach as part of Mandalay Bay’s Concerts on the Beach 2018 summer lineup sponsored by Coors Light and Pepsi Saturday, Sept. 8 at 9 p.m.
In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the American-born Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as “No Woman, No Cry” and “Three O’Clock Road Block” that first alerted rock fans to The Wailers music.
Anderson’s musical achievements with Bob Marley & The Wailers include the Platinum award-winning albums Life at the Lyceum, Babylon by Bus and the ten-time Platinum album Legend. The Original Wailers received their own GRAMMY nomination in 2013 for their album “Miracle,” making it Anderson’s second GRAMMY nomination.
The Original Wailers also include Chet Samuel (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Omar Lopez (Bass Guitar), Howard Smith (Drums) and Noel Aiken (Keyboards/Organ), who continue the legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers music.
Al Anderson is the sole member of the Bob Marley & The Wailers mid-1970s lineup in The Original Wailers.
Ozomatli has reunited with Chali 2na for their 2018 Worldwide Tour. The three-time GRAMMY Award-winning band serves as international cultural ambassadors, having performed in 54 countries spreading a message of inclusion and unity. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of their self-titled LP, this summer Ozomatli will release a remastered version of their 1998 debut album featuring original bonus tracks.
The Mandalay Bay Beach stage, which rises over the Four Diamond resort’s sand and surf wave pool, has hosted entertainment’s biggest names as part of the fan-favorite series. Concert-goers are invited to enjoy musical performances which perfectly complement the warm season as they sip on cocktails, sink their toes in the sand and wade in the water at Mandalay Bay’s 1.6-million-gallon wave pool.
