Stephen Marley will perform a virtual covers set in tribute to his late father Bob Marley as part of the ongoing celebration of the late reggae icon’s 75th birthday last year.
Scheduled to air on Thursday (1/28) at 8 p.m. ET via the Bob Marley YouTube page, the virtual event is the second tribute performance hosted by Marley’s sons, following Ziggy Marley‘s virtual covers set over the summer. As Brooklyn Vegan points out, Stephen Marley will plan on performing a number of familiar reggae songs made famous by his father including “Babylon System”, “Zimbabwe”, “Burnin’ and Lootin'”, “I Shot the Sheriff”, “Three Little Birds”, “One Love”, and “Could You Be Loved”.
Marley will also take part in a Q&A session following the performance, which will stream here. Scroll down to watch a teaser clip from the Q&A session.

Both Ziggy and Stephen Marley are scheduled to join Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals for a performance at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday, May 30th, though the fate of the event is still up in the air with COVID-19 still impacting the concert industry heading into 2021.
