Chaka Demus & Pliers

One Love Festival presents: 

 

Jamaica’s reggae stars Chaka Demus and Pliers are to perform at White Rock Theatre in Hastings on Saturday May 25th playing in the UK for the first time in ten years 

 

Marking the 25th anniversary since Chaka Demus & Pliers exploded onto the UK chart scene in when the duo scored six UK top 40 hits in just fourteen months, including ‘Tease Me’, ‘Murder She

 Wrote’, ‘She Don’t Let Nobody’ and their Number 1 hit cover of The Top Notes’ ‘Twist and Shout’.

 

When Chaka Demus and Pliers teamed-up in 1991 they were already established musicians with successful solo careers. 

 

What followed was an extremely prolific period, with the pair releasing no fewer than three albums in 1992 (‘Gal Wine Wine Wine’, ‘Bad Mind’ and ‘Ruff This Year’) and performing at Reggae Sunsplash in the same year.

International success followed for the duo, with their 1993 single ‘Tease Me’ reaching No.3 during a three month stay on the UK chart, and their album of the same name also reaching No. 1, selling over 500,000 and certified gold in the process.

When their single ‘Twist and Shout’ reached No.1 on the 2nd January 1994, Chaka Demus & Pliers became the first Jamaican act to top the UK single charts in eight years, and the first to have three consecutive Top Five hits.

 

With a new single and album in the pipeline, Chaka Demus said, “Coming to the UK is very special for us, as the UK is where we had our first hits outside of Jamaica. We still have a lot of new tunes to bring our UK fans, along with all our hits and we can’t wait to perform to all our fans in Hastings as part of One Love Festival 2019 promotional events 

 

Tickets go on sale at 12th Feb available from: www.onelovefestival.co.uk
