Beres Hammond and Sanchez add extra dates to UK tour

EXTRA DATES: Reggae fans in the UK now have more opportunities to see Beres Hammond and Sanchez live

BERES HAMMOND and Sanchez have added two extra dates to their UK tour this summer.

The news comes after it was announced that the duo would be performing together for the very first time at the Giants Of Reggae Tour 2018.

Extra dates have been added due to “phenomenal demand”.

The two soulful voices from Jamaica and pioneering reggae masters will now also play a show at O2 Academy Bristol on August 23. And, in addition to their show at O2 Academy Brixton on August 19 which is now sold out, another date in the capital at O2 Forum Kentish Town has also been added on August 24.

Hammond is one of Jamaica’s greatest singer-songwriters, responsible for a mighty legacy of soulful reggae music. Fans can no doubt expect him to perform his
latest single I’m Alive, released in May, as well as hits from his extensive back catalogue. I’m Alive has all the elements of classic Hammond production – smooth harmonies, jazzy instrumentation and poignant lyrics.

Over four decades, Hammond has poured his smoky sweet voice, an instrument of subtlety and power reminiscent of Otis Redding and Teddy Pendergrass, over every kind of riddim from the funked up reggae jams of 70s fusion band Zap Pow, to the beats of 80s dancehall.

Sanchez, a true reggae legend, transforms his audience into a mass choir at his live performances. Influenced by the likes of Brook Benton, Sam Cooke and Tom Jones, his repertoire ranges from soulful R’nB to hardcore dancehall, balanced with religiously calming cuts that enhance the spiritual vibes of his act.

Tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster.
