A hit song, like a first kiss or a frontal-lobe tattoo, stays in your mind forever until it’s surgically removed. Build memories that will last with this GrouponLive deal to see the #SublimeSummer concert, starring Sublime with Rome, The Wailers, Pepper, illScarlett, and KO at Historic Fort York. For $49, you get one presale ticket for general-admission lawn seating on Saturday, August 18, at 5 p.m. (up to a $69.50 value, including all fees).
Ska-punk royalty Sublime with Rome, reggae icons The Wailers, and reggae-rock party animals Pepper and illScarlett pool their crowd-pleasing talents to devise a surefire prescription for the summertime blues. Carrying on the legacy of legendary singer Bradley Nowell, dead-ringer Rome Ramirez leads Sublime with Rome through energetic numbers from its newest record, Yours Truly, as well as radio mainstays “Santeria” and “What I Got.”
The Wailers, heroes to reggae fans worldwide, carry on the rock-steady legacy of their former leader, Bob Marley, in a set certain to send dreadlocks swaying. Heading up the summer fun pack, the Hawaii and California hybrid of Pepper stomps and grinds with goodtime odes to love and pogo sticks, as heard in their song “Give It Up,” and Canadian pop-reggae fusionists illScarlett stir up good vibes with their upbeat jams. The mellow sounds will drift across the lush lawn of Historic Fort York, where Toronto grew from a military garrison and where visitors wander today amid buildings that survived the War of 1812.
