He's also been posting recently about his former Burning Spear singers back in the mid 70s...kinda sad to read when he clearly is angry with them over royalties etc..

I really wish he would be positive and let go of the past. He has a great life and is the best Reggae artist in the world. I can't wait to see this show in LA.

From all the vibes on social media and if you look at how many shows he is actually playing I think your best bet is to go to LA.

yeah, i'm afraid you are right.

i know he has been boycotting SNWMF for a few years (bummer).

What's the story about his lack of presence in Cali? I saw him maybe 4-5 years ago in sf, great show, classic after classic, miss catching the spear, true living legend.

He doesn't tour. Only a few live shows a year and is really picky about them. Honestly at his age who can blame him. He has seen plenty of his piers drive themselves into the ground on the road.

The last time he played in Northern California was in Santa Rosa 2012. A one-off concert, well worth the drive.

That Santa Rosa show was great, i videotaped the whole thing, but Mr. Spear did not like it on youtube. The band is tight.

Love that reggae!

I remember that show festival inSanra Rosa ..he played for more then 2 hours ?? Seen him many times but never played for that long..

outstanding show - including Tinariwen (who really should play at SNWMF)...

Daniel, why doesn't Spear want to play at SNWMF???
Re: JUne 27th 2016 Spear Hell-A

i think the story at snwmf is that spear had this crazy problem with ernie b's, and since snwmf let ernie b's have a booth, snwmf is off the list for spear.

Love that reggae!

Ernie B only sells one Burning Spear album. Winston needs to look in the mirror and follow the teachings of his own music. Let bygons be...

for the record: Los Angeles is one the greatest cities and Earth and the Hollywood Bowl is equally great as a venue... If you wanna see Spear perform you wont get a much better option than this!

Burning Spear played the sold out Hollywood Bowl Reggae Nights Aug. 2007. On the same night Sly & Robbie with Cherine Anderson (Horace Andy was a no show) and the reunited Wailing Souls (4 of them). "World class music that night" as a friend of mine said.
The Bowl is great for any concert. Try to get box seats if you can.
Also the "Park and ride the H.B. shuttle service" is really nice. I know that they did pick up from a few different locations back in 2007......check on line if they still offer this service.
It is the weekend after SNWMF.......

Spear at the Bowl tickets went on sale yesterday. They are almost all gone.

Although it's a long way from Boonville to LA, I got mine....

Thanks for the heads up Jahsprey!!!! You are awesome.

I got mine right now. Terrace Box. 2 seats. Might be the last time we see Burning Spear. He never comes to CA. So worth the drive to LA. I can't wait.

Mad loves and Jah bless.

Well a typo would be "Burning Spear in his fittest performance in California" or "Burning Spear in his funnel performance in California".

It would not surprise me. He has basically retired from playing live. He posted this on his Facebook page.

Fans and Friends you requested Burning Spear to perform at The Hollywood Bowl I Winston Rodney accept. This will be for sure Burning Spear final show in California. No Destroyer a night of Unity, Love & Peace June 26,2016 Hollywood Bowl Burning Spear will grace the Stage just for you. Love stronger than Hate

Man I would really love to go. What a great venue to see Spear in one last time.

Maybe Mr. Spear should let bygones be bygones as far as Ernie b goes. I SERIOUSLY doubt that Ernie EVER sold a Spear bootleg(or ANY boot for that matter!!!!). Spear has MANY grudges against MANY different people and he has FOR YEARS burned fire against MANY MANY ( I repeat MANY) people Including Ernie Battious - but a whole heap of others!!!! Many industry reggae insiders, including booking agents , club owners, past band members, don't want to deal with his BS!!!! It's him and MRS RODNEY against the world!!!!! Him too ANGRY and paranoid to let anyone else make any decisions!!! AS far as royalty war against Delroy and other original singer (Rupert???) Spear - JUST LET IT GO!!!!! Life is too short to hold a grudge for tings that happen over 50 years ago!!!! Spear ( or his ATTY.) most likely spend the majority of his / her time searching the internet (or you-tube) for people posting his stuff!!!! Trust me ; I have been in his presence many times dating backto the early-mid 80's. Not tryin to hate but speaking REALITY from my perspective!!! I the hundreds of Reggae artists I've hung with for over 38 years very few would I EVER call out in this manner ( except for EEK A Mouse and 1 or 2 others!!!) PS- When was the last time MR. Spear cracked a smile???? ) Cover shoot of Mistress Music????? See him in Cal. at the bowl because it very well could be one of his LAST US shows???? ME?? I'll just reflect on to 15-20 times I saw him from 1983-early 2000's . Mr Rodney - it's not too late to walk the walk that you SUPPOSEDLY talk about. Learn some LOVE, Positivity and warmth such as bredrin lileLuciano, Beres, CoCo Tea, Joseph Hill, and Many MANY more!!!!! Just posting a rare post to say whats on my mind!!! Blessed love to all!!!

I wonder if leroy sibbles will replace cocoa tea at this event as well?
Re: JUne 27th 2016 Spear Hell-A
June 04, 2016 02:09AM
I'd enjoy that.
Or a double dose of the Spear. If it's really his last show in CA, I'm hoping for a long one.
