Mind Control North America Tour

New York, NY February, 26, 2007 - Stephen Marley, GRAMMY winning artist and producer, has announced that he is launching a much anticipated tour this spring. Kicking off on March 30th, the tour is happening in association with the Ghetto Youths International Foundation and will feature special guest "Jr. Gong." The tour will run through May, hitting more than 40 cities with acclaimed artist K'naan also in tow.

Billed as the Mind Control North American tour, Ghetto Youths International will contribute one dollar from every ticket sold to the Marley's homegrown charity, The Ghetto Youth Foundation, which provides aid and programs to children struggling in impoverished and war-ravaged conditions around the globe. Highlights of the 3-month tour of Canada and the US will also include performances at the World Ski and Snowboard Championships in Whistler, British Columbia on April 15th, Coachella Music Festival in Indio, CA on April 27th, and JazzFest in New Orleans on May 5th.

The tour will hit Austin on May 3rd at Antone's. This is good news my friends. When Damian Marley (Bob Marley's youngest son) last came through Austin he was putting on one of the most memorable performances of the Austin City Limits Festival. Now he'll be back supporting his older brother and bringing some friends along. Make sure grab some tickets before it sells out.

Check out the tracks below to hear a couple of good songs to shout for when you hit up the tour. For more K’naan, check out the e-card for a live recording & etc.

Stephen Marley - "The Traffic Jam" | (Mind Control)
Damian Marley - "Move" | (Welcome To Jamrock)
K'naan - "Soobax" | (The Dusty Foot Philosopher)

I'll also throw in these two classics to help get ready for the Austin Reggae Festival this weekend. It used to be called the Bob Marley Festival, but you know, copyrights happen. It should be a pretty good time, and it looks like there's only a 10% chance of rain on Saturday. Score.

Augustus Pablo - "Thunder Clap" | (Original Rockers)
The Maytals - "Pressure Drop" | (Very Best Of)
