From Alpha's web site:

"Alpha Blondy et le Solar System ont dû annuler, pour raisons de santé, la tournée américaine débutée le 8 février à Hawaï."

Translation: Alpha Blondy and Solar System had to cancel their US tour that had begun the 8th of February for health reasons.

Hopefully, we'll get some more information later today...

I cant belive they are asking 50 bucks for that sub-par lineup for the Raggamuffin show. That is no 50 dollar show! Why cant the show but some bigger star for that much money! if there is no Alpha Blondy

On his first American tour, I did a butt-load of work to present a show
here---actually roped in the local NPR station to co-promote this to their
audience---and had a cancellation for the same reason. This was over 20 years ago, and needless to say there was never any desire on the part of that station
to be involved w/ another reggae promotion...

Alpha Blondy was in the hospital here in Kona for a few days. Not sure if he is still here or not.

He played the show on Oahu, and then got sick traveling here to the Big Island. He didn't play the show here, but Morgan Heritage brought out his band, and they all performed a song together.

I hope that Alpha Blondy is feeling better, and wish him, his friends and family the best!

25 years listening to "the roots music" and it hasn't made any difference in the way you come at Alpha Blondy? Did you even listen to any words in any of that roots music you listened to in those 25 years? I'm not so sure that Alpha Blondy is the "wan-a-be fake poser" here...

Peace,

Jerusalem is a roots anthem. Top Notch! Wannabe? What , who does he sounds like, how is he a poser. An African reggae artist, that speaks multiple languages, plays with high energy, always positive messages, very spiritual. Man, this guy doesnt really have any flaws as an artis IMHO. 1 of the most unique voices, sounds and stylee in reggae period. Bummed he didnt make BobDay.

izes massive,

ok some of you know that alpha blondy fell ill in hawaii. it was thought to be pnuemenia. it was way worse. malaria! alpha was diagonosed as having malaria by his french doctors. it was thought that it could have been cancer because a relative died from cancer last year. our prayers and mediation are with him. he will be forward again.

he was in africa before going to hawaii.

there is a full press release out there detailing the cancellation of the tour.

bless,
carlos

Blessvibe is a real piece of @#$%& teabagger. Calling Alpha Blondy a "wanna be fake poser" is like calling him an N-bomb. Boring? Are you kidding me?

He has played for crowds of over 300,000 in Africa and has been called the Bob Marley of Africa by many.

He has been a major influence on reggae worldwide and has one of the most positive messages out there, unlike many of these shitty dancehall "artist of the minute" types.

Go crawl back into your hole you disrespectful piece of dogshit.

I was just told that Alpha Blondy is bed ridden with pneumonia, a recurring bout of malaria, and is being tested for possible cancer. Bless and respect to Alpha and down with the haters.

This crowd looks really bored:

Malaria stays with you for life- resurfacing when ever your body's immune system looks away. Very serious ting!!!! You wouldn't wish that virus on anybody-- well maybe G Bush and the rest of those shady catz killin' people around da world.
