Such was the success of the project in 2017 that it was re-commission by the Southbank for a very special performance in March 2018 with legendary British broadcaster David Rodigan. The concert will celebrate 40 years of Rodigans broadcasting and promotion of reggae music in the UK and around the world. Rodigan will be joined on stage by a number of special guests and vocalists. The show will then be touring around the UK and European festival circuit in the summer of 2018.
