He will also be performing with the "Bollywood Orchestra", a philharmonic orchestra from India, during a special show in Ireland and in the UK.

U2 star Bono is reportedly a big fan of reggae music, and is a huge fan of reggae singer Abdel Wright, a former convict, after performing with him at a 2003 AIDS benefit concert in South Africa and now he's helping him hit the charts

The recording will take place some time during a European tour that Gregory Isaacs will be conducting and which will wind through Holland, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany and the UK.

Isaacs will be accompanied by the Live Wyya Band, who will do an opening sting as they promote their new CD "Solid Meditation". Isaacs and the Live Wyya Band have been touring consistently since February 2006 and have so far performed on

most of the major festivals in the US including all the Raggamuffin Festival

(formerly known as the "Bob Marley Festivals" and most of the major

festivals during the summer time.

"During the recently concluded "One Love Festival " tour of the USA of which Gregory and the Live Wyya Band was part of, there were news flying around in the music circle that the Cool Ruler was ill and had to cut short his participation in the tour, however, he did not miss a single show on the tour. Each night, he did his complete set on stage to the

delight of his many fans who turned out to witness this veteran entertainer," Copeland Forbes said.

Isaacs has recorded over 140 albums to date and his big hit signature song "Night Nurse" is still in great demand.

"Recently at a concert in Tijuana, Mexico, Isaacs and the Live Wyya Band played to an audience of over 4,500 screaming fans who wanted more and more of the Cool Ruler when he left the stage," Forbes said.

Isaacs recently signed to Comar Productions Ltd which now represents both Isaacs and Live Wyya in management and bookings. The 15-man entourage will return to Jamaica December 6th and will leave Jamaica December 8th for South America where the group will do concerts in Mexico, Columbia, Guam and Saipan before returning to Jamaica for the "Silly Season" of Christmas shows that the group is slated to perform on.

The tour is booked by Copeland Forbes of Comar Productions Ltd and for further info please contact Comar Productions PR department.
