Prince Alla will be performing many of his classic hits - including songs such as Great Stone, Lot's Wife, Youthman In The Ghetto, and Bosrah - all backed by the amazing Mista Savona band.

yeah... no go it seems. I'm not directly involved, just helping spread the word, but it sounds like negotiations broke down at the last minute so it now looks like there won't be a show on that night, which is a shame...

okay, tickets for the 14th in Footscray are door sales only. cost of entry is a massive $5! I'm told it's an outdoor space, and capacity shouldn't be an issue.

I think because all the other shows are festival gigs where they're not actually relying on ticket sales to cover costs...?

Hence the need for a general flyer and promo thread such as this one to help get the word out to reggae fans in each city...

bad news Melbourne people... Jake sent me a message this morning saying that Prince Alla will miss tomorrow's shows. There was a mixup with the US visa and it wasn't sorted in time, though I believe he'll still be here in time for the rest of the tour... fingers crossed anyway...

yeh this is real unfortunate...a mixup with the festival travel agents responsible for his flights and visas. The Australian visa was sorted months ago - but no-one knew he needed a US visa just to travel in transit (1 hour at LA airport now requires a Visa for Jamaicans). This apparently is a relatively new law.

The band has been perfecting Alla's Soul Syndicate riddims, we even have Dizzy and Jornick doing the beautiful old style vocal harmonies!

We're trying to reschedule another Melbourne show on a weeknight in 10 days or so. Will keep people posted.
