Jimmy Cliff, reggae music icon, Grammy Award winner and recent inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will perform in Miami for the first time in nearly 20 years.
Cliff will stage a one night only show on Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets go on sale to members on Friday and to the general public on Aug. 13.
``Last year we celebrated Jimmy Cliff's tremendous musical legacy with the blockbuster musical, `The Harder They Come,' '' said M. John Richard, president and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. ``This season, it is only fitting that we present the man himself -- the voice of a nation.''
The Jamaican-born Cliff was reggae's first international star. With more than 20 best-selling albums, his songs include Many Rivers to Cross, ``You Can Get It If You Really Want,'' ``Sitting in Limbo'' and ``Rivers of Babylon.''
Cliff is currently at work on his new album, ``Existence,'' slated for release this fall. Tickets to his performance at the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall range from $30 to $65. They can be purchased through the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling 305-949-6722, or online at www.arshtcenter.org.
