Popular British old-school reggae act Black Slate returns to Gisborne tonight to perform at Smash Palace.
Formed in 1974 with musicians from England, Jamaica and Anguilla, Black Slate had their first reggae-chart hit two years later with the anti-mugging song Sticks Man.
In 2017, the five-piece filmed a segment for their Peaceful Demonstration video while in Gisborne.
And now that they are back, the band will be joined by support acts Jamey Ferguson (Katchafire), Whanau Trio, Aotearoa, Wahine Toa Proud, and NRG Rising.
Tickets available from ticketspace or at the door. Presale $30, door $40, VIP $60.
