Marley's Sons Stage Concert

The four sons of reggae legend BOB MARLEY will hold a concert promoting peace to commemorate the 62nd anniversary of the musician's birth next month (FEB07). The event, dubbed "Smile Jamaica" will take place on 10 February (07) at Marley's birthplace of Nine Miles in St Ann parish on the island. The concert will feature STEPHEN MARLEY and his brothers KY-MANI, DAMIAN and JULIAN and shares the same name as a 1976 show staged by the government of former socialist Prime Minister MICHAEL MANLEY to promote harmony between politically aligned gangs. According to family spokesperson JEROME HAMILTON, "They are trying to push a message of peace, although it won't be as hard-core as when Bob did it." The February date coincides with Bob Marley Week, a celebration of the singer's birth on 6 February 1945. Marley rose from the slums of Jamaica to global stardom in the 1970s with such hits as NO WOMAN, NO CRY and I SHOT THE SHERIFF. He died of cancer in Miami, Florida in 1981 at the age 36.
