November 10 to 25 1997, Ball Of Fire tour

The Ball Of Fire tour continued

After Berne, I had no contact with The Skatalites and the Ball Of Fire 1997 tour until tuesday 26th of November, when the tour was in Paris, where I meet them for the last show of the tour.

Stuttgart (LKH), Erlangen (E-Werk), Leipzig (Connie Island), Hamburg (Fabrik), Dortmund (Live Station), Den Haag (Paard), Cean (La Fonderie)

And then The Skatalites went for the very first time into Africa. La Reunion is a french island close to MadagaSKAr. That was a great moment specially for Rolando Alphonso, as he told me later.

A few days in paradise and then back to the final shows in Paris at New Morning.

  1. Made it to the show at De Paard on the 16th in Den Haag. Took a lot of photos that night and was with photographer Brian Jahn who was also shooting. Some from backstage, which was not such a nice space.
    Knibb had his red kit with the Skatalites on the kick drum. Nice to have seen that set in Paris for Jamaica Jamaica exhibition. Now it’s back at the Jamaica Music Museum in Kingston.
