Port of Spain – Within the next five days, the Marley Brothers – Damian, Julian, Stephen and Kymani, will be in Trinidad and Tobago.
Promotional powerhouse Tri-Star Promotions has vowed to present patrons of all walks of life with a stimulating, conscious engagement; and with that guaranteed, even Jamaicans are said to be booking flights over to T&T for next Thursday’s affair.
Relative and media liaison to the Marley brothers, Alan Cole Jr., said the show will epitomize and reflect just what a house of royalty is expected to.
“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.
Cole noted that the buzz surrounding the concert had taken on a life of its own in Jamaica, with people attempting to secure airline tickets.
Explaining that the brothers themselves were excited about the trip, Cole said while Ziggy would have loved to be part of the show in Trinidad, his long list of commitments would not permit.
The Marley brothers recently returned to Miami after doing two shows at the London Olympics. Before arriving in Trinidad for the August 30 show at the Hasley Crawford Stadium, Cole said they would be making a pit stop in their homeland.
Guaranteeing that the calibre of the concert – now dubbed Marley Magic – will be one of a kind, he said, “Trinidad always awaits the Marley family . . . I think it will definitely be a great show.”
Cole noted that many Jamaicans were excited to come to Trinidad to party and enjoy the pre-Independence concert.
“They know that when they say Trinidad, it is known for the big parties. It’s a pre- Independence and we [Jamaica] just had our 50th, so we are coming to party with you guys,” he said.
Naming singles like Rasta Love by Kymani and No Cigarette Smoke by Stephen, Cole Jr said while Damian is always a big performer, he knows many fans of the Marleys will enjoy their wide selection of hit singles.
Opening acts for the event include Collis Duranty who is known for his scintillating, positive delivery of reggae ballads, and Trinidadian recording artiste, Orlando Octave.
