Today, ZIGGY MARLEY is pleased to announce a very special show at the Brixton Academy, London this Summer.
For one night only, on 26th June 2022 the Grammy and Emmy award-winning artist will be paying the ultimate homage to the life and work of Bob Marley.
Presenting… ‘ZIGGY MARLEY: A LIVE TRIBUTE TO HIS FATHER’
50 years since Bob’s first tour of the UK, the evening promises to be a celebration of the musician’s eternal songbook and immortal legacy.
Joined by his longtime band of esteemed musicians, Ziggy (Bob’s eldest son) will be performing an entire set of Bob Marley songs and encouraging an evening of warm remembrance for the reggae genre’s brightest star. The first time Ziggy will have staged his latest show this side of the Atlantic, a show in San Diego last year was praised as “an impassioned tribute to [Bob Marley] by his oldest son… fresh and vital” (The San Diego Tribune).
A unique opportunity to reacquaint with Marley’s timeless classics, the Brixton show promises to be a touching tribute from the closest of family.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on 18th February 2022, available here.
