Marley brothers Damian, Julian, Stephen and Ky-mani will perform in Trinidad and Tobago next week Thursday. Trinidadian promotional powerhouse, Tri-Star Promotions, has vowed to present patrons of all walks of life with a stimulating, conscious engagement.
Media liaison to the Marley brothers, Alan Cole Jr, said the show is going to epitomise and reflect a house of royalty. “We hope for this show to be a sell-off and we want everybody to come out and enjoy it, because it is the first time all four brothers will perform on stage together in Trinidad,” he said.
Explaining that the brothers themselves are tremendously excited about the trip, Cole Jr said while Ziggy Marley would have loved to be part of the show in Trinidad, his long list of commitments would not permit it.
The Marley brothers returned to Miami, USA, from the London Olympics where they performed at two shows. Before arriving in Trinidad for the August 30 show at the Hasley Crawford Stadium, Cole Jr said the brothers would be making a pit stop in their homeland.
Guaranteeing that the calibre of this concert – now dubbed Marley Magic, will be special, Cole said “Trinidad always awaits the Marleyfamily, so you know I think it will definitely be a great show.”
The gates will open at 7 p.m. and the concert will kick off at 9 p.m. Opening acts include Collis Duranty, who is known for his scintillating delivery of reggae ballads, and popular local recording artist Orlando Octave.
Soca’s royal family – eight-time Road March winner Super Blue, his daughter Fay-Ann Lyons and her husband, Bunji Garlin – along with Chutney Soca Monarch King, KI, will also perform. Lyons has already made it clear that her performance will be unlike anything T&T has ever seen from her.
