See all dates for Grace Jones' Meltdown

Be here for a one-off performance from the musician who penned immortal anthems including ‘I Can See Clearly Now’, ‘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’.

Arguably overshadowed by the rise of Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff continues to enjoy a successful career that's seen him record 20 albums and boasts two of the biggest worldwide reggae hits; 'Wonderful World, Beautiful People' and 'You Can Get It If You Really Want'. With a respected sideline in movie acting, most notably in 'The Harder They Come', 2002 has more recently seen him scoop the 'Contribution to Urban Music' MOBO award.
