Jimmy Cliff

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

Be here for a one-off performance from the musician who penned immortal anthems including ‘Wonderful World, Beautiful People’, ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’ and ‘The Harder They Come’.

The Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, actor and humanitarian Jimmy Cliff joins us for a concert as part of Grace Jones’ Meltdown.

In addition to receiving Jamaica's Order of Merit, he holds the distinction of being one of two Jamaican Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees – in good company with Bob Marley.

Cliff has collaborated with some of the world’s most recognised artists, including the Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, Annie Lennox and Paul Simon.

Bob Dylan famously proclaimed Cliff’s ‘Vietnam’ to be ‘the greatest protest song ever written’.
