The Belfast reggae society are to host tribute night for the legend's 35th anniversary
This year we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the legendary artist Bob Marley. In honour of the momentous milestone, the Belfast reggae society are hosting a tribute night for the late icon.
"Thirty-four years ago we had the first tribute to Bob in the Europa Hotel and the place was packed," said organiser Terri Hooley in a statement.
The event will take place at the Oh Yeah Music Centre on Saturday, May 14, with video's and music to keep the party going all week. DJ's for this year’s event are Stuart Bailie, Keith McCormick, Terri Hooley and special guest Brixton Nick from London.
The Jamaican musician is a global ambassador for not only reggae music, but peace and reconciliation. He sold more than 70 million records throughout his career - making him the first international superstar to emerge from the so-called Third World.
Advance tickets are on sale at Oh Yeah and cost £5.00.
