After the monumental success of last year’s Distant Relatives tour, the chances of seeing these two heavyweights embark on another international excursion appeared slim, yet low and behold in December 2010 the unimaginable became actuality…
So for those who dont know, Reggae’s (second) prodigal son Damian Marley announced he would be teaming up with Nasir Jones aka Nas to take the distant Relatives tour around the world for one last hurrah, and this time it seemed an opportunity too glaringly fortunate to pass up.
On Saturday 2nd April, 15 dates into a marathon 22 legged international test of endurance the tour touched down in Manchester at the legendary Apollo. Supported by the ever-sprightly Spragga Benz , special mention must go to Marley’s flag waver, who ensured Jamaica’s colours did not touch the ground like his life depended on it.
For anyone who caught the tour you’ll know how memorable it was.
