Following the success of his latest full-length album Awake (Ghetto Youths Int’l) just released in April 2009, Julian “JuJu” Marley and his band, the Uprising, hit the road for a cross-country U.S. tour starting October 8th in Jacksonville, FL. Accompanying him on stage will be Grammy-award winning musician, producer and older brother, Stephan Marley, as well as a young up-and-coming reggae artist Javaughn, who is set to open for the band.

Already labeled as one of Julian’s career best, Awake is his third studio release and has already topped the number one slot for reggae downloads on iTunes. His latest single “Violence in the Streets” featuring younger brother Damian Marley, have quickly climbed the online viral charts with the music video already receiving over a million hits on such popular music sites as worldstarhiphop.com and reggaeville.com!

The Awake Tour offers highlights from his latest album as well as classic Julian Marley hits, music that spans well over his 20-year career. A sure-fire performance that will set precedence for all reggae artists to come, the audience will expect an electrifying and uplifting set of roots music that will inspire, empower and awaken the human spirit.
