Reggae legend Burning Spear will be on the road for the first time in six years this summer, which includes North American shows in San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, DC, Denver, Boston, Philly, and NYC. He's also got European shows and UK dates with Horace Andy. Check out his current tour schedule below.

The NYC show happens at Summerstage in Central Park on August 25 and is his first show here since 2010. Tickets for that show are on presales now, with the general on-sale starting Thursday, May 24 at noon.

Burning Spear released "Mommy," his first new song in a decade, last fall, which is from his long-in-the-works album No Destroyer. That album still doesn't have a release date, but Burning Spear's website says it's "coming soon." Stay tuned.
