Steel Pulse to play Boston’s Wilbur Theatre

, Staff

Steel Pulse will hit Massachusetts next month as part of the band’s latest tour. The reggae veterans will play Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on Tuesday, June 28. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $35, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

Though Steel Pulse’s last album release was 2004‘s African Holocaust, the English band has remained active on issues of social justice and charity. They released a new single “Hold On [4 Haiti]” last August with the purpose of raising money to improve health clinics in Haiti. The song is available on a donation basis at www.holdon4haiti.org, with all proceeds directly benefiting those in need in Haiti. “Because the initial media coverage has waned considerably, we want to revitalize the focus on Haiti’s plight,” frontman David Hinds said in a press release. “We wrote ‘Hold On [4 Haiti]’ to support the people of Haiti through the work being done by the Solar Electric Light Fund and Partners In Health. We’ve got to make a real difference on the ground — that’s what this project is all about.”

After the performance in Boston, Steel Pulse will head up to New Hampshire for a performance at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Thursday, June 30. Tickets for the show are available through Ticketmaster for $22.
