Tarrus Riley Thrills On Recent European Tour
Reggae artiste Tarrus Riley and his Blak Soil band recently put the lid on a successful European tour. The tour was the artiste’s third annual jaunt and he aptly described the outing as phenomenal.
In a release to the media, Riley recalled the stand out moments and the excitement from the fans which greeted his party at each performance.
Said Riley “The tour was great. We performed at some new venues as well as some really interesting festivals. The highlight for me though were the shows that we did in Germany. We received an overwhelming response from the crowd”.
The four week jaunt snaked its way through countries including Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden and Holland.
One of the major festivals that Riley performed at was the Roskilde festival in Germany which attracted a reported 100,000 fans.
“The crowd was phenomenal at that show and they just sang the songs word for word. Songs like Superman, Never Leave I and Protect the People are huge songs in Europe,” said Riley.
Riley and his band recently returned to the island from a series of performances in Hawaii. It was his second time to the US state, and according to the singer, it was a great experience.
The performances took place in the islands of Honolulu and Maui. A large crowd came out in support of the shows.
An excited Riley recounted seeing huge billboards with his image and the words ‘Hawaii’s most Wanted’ written on them. “It was flattering seeing the billboards and it just goes to show the power of the music and what it does to people,” said Riley.
Riley had visited Hawaii a few months ago on a promotional campaign. He dubbed his return to the island as mission accomplished.
