Bob Marley 70th birthday concert ‘Redemption Live,’ prepared by organizers Digicel and Tuff Gong, was a great success.
Fortunately, the venue victoriously held the multitude that flocked the Kingston waterfront on Saturday night (Feb. 7) for the live concert.
The massive turnout was evidence to the genius and marketability of reggae legend Bob Marley, whose birthday celebration was an unforgettable event for the residents of the native city of Kingston, Jamaica.
The tribute to the patriarch of the Marley lineage saw the billed performers vibrated the reggae’s house.
Marley’s influence was a incredible testimony in the performance of his three sons including Damian aka Junior Gong, Julian and Kymani, who came together to put a fitting finale to the event with a rendition of Get Up Stand Up.
The Marley borthers warmly earned as they celebrated their father’s legacy by singing his songs.
Junior Gong, who has the largest archive of hits among the three, was the most effective. His show-closing effort was suitably rewarded with brazen love from the vast crowd.
Fire man Capleton was also brning as he ignited his sets with his trademark highly-charged hits.
Bob Marley’s former harmonizers, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt, did individual sets before collaborating to deliver a medley of Marley hits.
Reggae band Ruff Cut perfectly backed majority of performers while master of Ceremony duties were shared between Tommy Cowan and Elise Kelly.
