Toots & the Maytals Bowl Over Aussie Fans

It has been a long time coming, but the prayers of the fans down under was
finally answered in April when Reggae legend Toots & the Maytals traveled
around the world to perform in a series of sold out shows across the country.

The Australian tour included performances in Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns,
Freemantle, Byron¹s Bay and started in Singapore. This marked Toots¹ first
time in Singapore where he performed to a sold out audience alongside Bob
Dylan, John Legend and many more at the Timbre Rock and Roots Festival.

After Singapore it was onto Freemantle for The West Coast Blues & Roots
Festival sharing the bill again with Bob Dylan as well as Grace Jones, Elvis
Costello, Mavis Staples, Robert Randolph, Michael Franti, The Blind Boys of
Alabama and others.

The next stop was Cairns for an intimate club show at The Tanks Art Center
attended by many from the Aborigine community. The annual five day Bluesfest
music festival in Byrons Bay featured two performances by Toots & the
Maytals alongside Bob Dylan, BB King, Ben Harper, ZZ Top, Aaron Neville. The
tour finished in Melbourne and Sydney with theater shows featuring
performances by Luciano and Warrior King.

Toots continues to record profusely including a collaboration with TV star
William Shatner aka Captain Kirk on a remake of the Police¹s ŒWalking on the
Moon¹, will be released in this summer. Toots¹ latest I-Tunes single is
another remake of the classic ³Unchained Melody² which was recorded at the
request of the song¹s owner Sir Paul McCartney.

Next month Toots is touring on the road again with his daughter and backing
singer Leba, opening for performances in North America and Europe in support
of her debut album Intoxicated scheduled for release in the summer.
