Ziggy performs virtual live concert in tribute to #BobMarley75

July 19, 2020

This morning, Ziggy Marley paid tribute to his father during a virtual, socially-distanced livestream concert on YouTube. The show was filmed in Los Angeles, CA with the help of CEEK VR, and featured partitions between performers and masks from those who weren’t singing.

The concert comes as part of the family’s year-long #BobMarley75 celebration of what would have been the reggae icon’s 75th birthday. Over the course of 2020, the Marleys are sharing a 12-part documentary, new music videos, archival footage, and more.

Ziggy began the concert with “Roots, Rock, Reggae” from 1976’s Rastaman Vibration. From there, Marley’s oldest son led his band through spirited versions of some of his father’s biggest songs, including “Get Up, Stand Up”, “One Love”, “Exodus”, and a rare electrified rendition of “Redemption Song”. Yet, Ziggy also honored many of his father’s less popular, but equally powerful, songs with “War / No More Trouble”, “Positive Vibration”, a show-closing “Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)”, and many more over the hour-long concert.
