Jimmy Cliff @ Celebrate Brooklyn! 2012 (more by Ryan Muir)
Jimmy Cliff

Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff just announced the "Many Rivers Crossed Tour," which finds the singer not only playing his best-loved songs, but also telling the stories behind them. That tour comes to NYC on September 28 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale on Wednesday (6/26) at noon with the regular on-sale happening on Friday (6/28). All tour dates are listed below.

Last year Cliff released the Grammy-winning album Rebirth that was produced by Tim Armstrong of Rancid (who just played two nights at Terminal 5).

This year, meanwhile, marks the 40th anniversary of The Harder They Come which featured Cliff in a starring role (and on the classic soundtrack). In celebration, the film is getting a one-day-only theatrical rerelease on September 5. Theater list is still TBA. Check out the trailer below.
