Andrew Tosh To Tour NZ With David Grace & Injustice As Backing Band
At short notice, a very special live collaboration between reggae musician Andrew Tosh (son of the late, great Peter Tosh of Jamaica) and local kiwis David Grace & Injustice has been scheduled.
Today, the stars are setting off on a tour of New Zealand's North Island, starting tonight in Gisborne, before travelling on to Whakatane, Auckland, Ngongotaha, New Plymouth and Ohakune.
The tour follows the first face-to-face meeting of Tiki Taane and Andrew Tosh this week, who performed the classic hit of Peter Tosh and Rolling Stones 'Walk And Don't Look Back' on TVNZ's Good Morning show (watch it at http://tvnz.co.nz/good-morning/extra-200612-tosh-video-4938778).
Andrew Tosh's visit to the country is in celebration of a Jamaica's 50th anniversary as an independent nation, as well as the formation of The Wailers, brought together by Peter Tosh, Bob Marley and Buddy Livingstone. 2012 also marks 25 years since Peter Tosh was tragically killed in a home invasion for extortion.
New Zealand's own David Grace & Injustice are musical warriors for Maori independence and sovereignty. Their record Weapons of Peace is a powerful album combining the use of Maori and English language in a variety of musical settings - haka, reggae, soul and pop - covering mainly themes of indigenous rights and capturing the spirit of the Pacific.
This musical collaboration is a unique event. You should get along to any of the shows if you can!
