One of the most iconic reggae artists of all time will be hitting the sunny California coastline one more time this summer. The great Don Carlos will hit Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, CA as the three destinations beginning August 30th.
So Cal roots-rock-reggae will be alive and well with Don Carlos performing, but the performer himself couldn’t be more pleased with playing in Southern California once again, as he stated, “Nuff greetings and blessings to all the fans out there. I am coming to revive my presence in Southern California with love and blessings. Thank you for your continual support over the years. We love you all, but Jah loves you more.”
One aspect about Don Carlos’ live shows, both past and future, he displays that unending passion bouncing from the stage through to the crowd. The presence that Don Carlos wishes to revive will be plentiful with his latest recording on SoCal jam band Slightly Stoopid’s Top of the World album release on August 14th, 2012. That singular album appearance alone should boost attendance figures for the already adored Jamaican singer/songwriter.
In addition, Don Carlos will also be featured on Cisco Adler’s forthcoming new album ALOHA on the song “Boom Boom Boom”, that also features Kyle Mcdonald of Slightly Stoopid.
It is not often that a living legend such as Don Carlos performs in an intimate setting, yet the tireless touring veteran managed to squeeze in a few west coast dates following his recent European tour this past summer.
The first show of the three dates will be held in Los Angeles, CA at the Levitt Pavillion on Thursday, August 30th, followed by a night at The Observatory in Santa Ana on Friday and the grand finale on Saturday at the Belly Up in Solano Beach, California.
If you are anywhere in the neighborhood for these three shows, be sure to mark your calendar and head down to the venue to watch a true artist at work, live and in person.
