Reggae legends The Wailers will perform at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College at 7 p.m. Jan. 17.

Led by frontman Bob Marley in the 1970s, the band produced top hits "One Love," "Get Up, Stand Up," "Buffalo Soldier" and "Three Little Birds." After Marley's death at age 36 in 1981, The Wailers broke up for a time, recently reuniting to keep the music alive.

Bob Marley & The Wailers have sold more than 250 million recordings.

The lineup includes original Wailers guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, bassist and founder Aston "Familyman" Barrett, Aston Barrett Jr. on drums, lead singer Joshua David Barrett, Owen "Dreadie" Reid on guitar/base, Noel Davey on keyboards, and singers Shema McGregor, Judy Mowatt and Hassanah.

Tickets are $40 ($36 for FAC members), coloradocollege.edu/fac
