The one-night-only concert is set to take place at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, California, on November 1 and is already racking up a stellar line-up. According to an article on Grammy.com, along with the late reggae icon’s sons Ziggy and Stephen, Jim James, Tom Morello, Gary Clark Jr, Aloe Blacc, Cyril Neville and Citizen Cope have been booked for the event.

The Exodus 40 live concert follows Ziggy Marley’s ‘restatement’ reissue of his father’s LP, dubbed Exodus 40: The Movement Continues. That compilation featured lead vocal out-takes, ad-libs and more from Marley and the Wailers’ Exodus recording sessions. It was released on June 3.

Bringing The Event Together

Music director Don Was has been working on bringing the event together. “After listening to Ziggy’s restatement of Exodus 40: The Movement Continues, the album struck me as something so powerful and rarely seen live in its entirety,” said the internationally acclaimed Was. “I am thrilled to be a part of this show with Ziggy and Stephen and perform these songs for the fans.”

Exodus was recorded in London, England, when Marley left Jamaica after the shooting at his 56 Hope Road, St Andrew home in December 1976, ahead of the Smile Jamaica concert.
