Notes:
Roots reggae artist, Chronixx and his band, Zinc Fence Redemption were the victims of a "dread and terrible lie" during the last week of their "Dread and Terrible" European tour. In an online release from Platinum Camp, that stated that Chronixx and members of his band were beaten by French police using "baseball bats" when they "refused to wear armbands" at the Paris show on April 6, was the cause of many fans taking to social media to express their concern. The Dread & Terrible Tour has continued with successful performances by Chronixx, Dre Island and Kelissa in various cities around Europe every night since the April 6 date in Paris."
