04/15/2022 by Press Release
Acclaimed reggae progeny Stephen Marley announces his 2022 Babylon By Bus Summer Tour. The eight-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist will perform with a full band on the 19-date run.
The bi-coastal tour kicks off in Monterey, California May 26 at the Cali Roots Festival, and features seven California dates, along with performances in Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts and New York. Stephen Marley will showcase a mixture of original songs from his illustrious 40-year career, as well as revitalized classics from his father Bob Marley’s iconic catalog.
Highlights include a special sold out Red Rocks Amphitheatre performance with Ben Harper and brother Ziggy Marley, who will also link up with Stephen again in Vienna, Virginia on July 27. Skip Marley opens six dates on the tour, along with other hand-picked support artists such as Kabaka Pyramid, Hirie and Mike Love.
The critically acclaimed vocalist, songwriter, producer and philanthropist, whose debut album, Mind Control, was dubbed “the best Marley album of a generation” by Entertainment Weekly, recently released an EP collection of songs he produced with female vocalists as an homage to legend Nina Simone, Celebrating Nina: A Reggae Tribute to Nina Simone, featuring Joss Stone, Cedella Marley, Etana and more via Ghetto Youths International, and now streaming on all digital platforms.
Stephen Marley is currently putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming full-length studio album, slated to release later this year.
