Damian Marley adds extra date for Respect Jamaica 50 Festival

Damian Marley will headline back-to-back shows this summer

Grammy Award winning reggae artist Damian Marley is to headline back-to-back shows this summer at London’s indigO2. Huge demand has led to the scheduling of an additional show on Friday July 27, to accompany his existing performance on Thursday July 26 as part of Respect Jamaica 50 celebrations.

The youngest son of Bob Marley will be delivering his trademark blend of dancehall and reggae to thousands of fans with hits like “Welcome to Jamrock”, “As We Enter”, “Affairs of the Heart” and “Set Up Shop”.

“The response to Damian Marley’s original show was so overwhelming we simply had to add another date. This country has always had an incredible passion for Jamaican music, and it’s fantastic that we can offer fans another chance to catch one of the biggest stars around.”
Rob Hallett, AEG Live
