State Theatre presents Rusted Root and The Wailers, for one amazing night of music!
In 1992 Rusted Root released Cruel Sun independently and two years later, while signed to Mercury, they released their platinum-selling breakthrough, When I Woke, which spawned the Top 40 hit Send Me On My Way, that went on to chart on Billboards Hot 100. In 2004, the band released the double album Rusted Root Live on their own Touchy Pegg label, following the re-release of the newly re-mastered Cruel Sun in 2003. Rusted Root continued to tour relentlessly between the release of Cruel Sun and the 2009 release of Stereo Rodeo. Their most recent release, The Movement, is an energized and poetic collection of originals that capture the Pittsburgh based unit at their best.
There is no more legendary band in Jamaican music history than The Wailers. Formed in 1969, as it continues its worldwide campaign of promoting peace, love, and equality through the message of reggae and Rastafari.
