Matisyahu To Headline First Annual Festival Of Light Concert Series In NYC
Published October 25, 2006

Following a busy season of touring and major festival appearances alongside some of the biggest names in music such as Kanye West, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Radiohead, Matisyahu will give his hometown fans a holiday treat this Hannukah when he kicks off the First Annual Festival of Light concert series at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Matisyahu will be joined by his band Roots Tonic and a different special opening act December 16, 17, and 19.

Fan club members can buy tickets now through matisyahuworld.com, where fans can join "The Bridge," the official Matisyahu fan club, and have exclusive access to tickets before public sale. The Live Nation pre-sale is also going on now, and tickets will go on sale to the public at noon on Oct. 19, with all tickets priced at $30.

Critics have praised his ability to draw fans from unexpected places with his "hypnotic blend of reggae and rap music" (San Jose Mercury News). Paste Online raved about his appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival, saying, "Matisyahu performed on the same stage as Gnarls Barkley did earlier in the weekend, but the saturated air and the glaring sun didn't prevent him from putting on the performance of the festival. With his unconventional dance moves, infectious songs and moments of deep space dub, he made an irresistible impression." (Jim Caliguri, 10/4/06)

Matisyahu's latest studio release, the gold-certified Youth(Epic) debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, has garnered critical acclaim worldwide and continues to be a Top 5 mainstay in the Billboard reggae charts.
