New Zealand music heavyweights come together to celebrate the legend of Bob Marley!
The biggest super-group of NZ musicians to ever hit Australia will be playing at NIGHTQUARTER on the Gold Coast this December. The show, MARLEY: CELEBRATE THE LEGEND, is endorsed directly by the Marley family and features 19 of your favourite kiwi stars playing the hits of Bob Marley. It will be staged for one night only on Friday 1 December.
Some of New Zealand’s biggest artists are part of this homage to one of the greatest influences on NZ music. Tiki Taane, Che Fu, Laughton Kora, Fran Kora, Annie Crummer, Boh Runga, Ria Hall, Anna Coddington and Joel Shadbolt each take the lead vocals in one or more songs including Get Up Stand Up, 3 Little Birds, Stir It Up, Redemption Song, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Buffalo Soldier, Punky Reggae Party, Exodus, No Woman No Cry, One Love and many many more.
“The Marley show is a rare chance for us to all come together as musicians & fans to celebrate the legacy of the greatest reggae artist that’s ever been. He has inspired & influenced us all throughout our lives & careers, so to be able to play his music live is a glorious experience”
