Popular reggae singer and guitarist Ziggy Marley has added onto his already busy summer touring schedule with a new batch of gigs alongside British roots-reggae outfit, Steel Pulse. As Marley’s Rebellion Rises summer tour returns to North America in the second half of summer, he’ll link up with Steel Pulse starting with a concert at Saratoga, California’s Mountain Winery on Aug. 14, followed by a few more shows in Skyline Stage at The Mann in Philadelphia on Sept. 6, Glen Allen, Virginia on Sept. 12, and New Haven, Connecticut on Sept. 15. Steel Pulse is also set to head out on their own North American summer tour, with notable stops at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in St. Augustine, Florida on Aug. 5 and Saint Petersburg's Jannus Live a few nights later on Aug. 12.
Ziggy Marley, the well-known son of reggae legend Bob Marley, has kept himself and his band pretty busy as of late, having just released his seventh solo studio album with Rebellion Rises. The 49-year-old native Jamaican is scheduled to begin his 2018 tour in support of the album next Friday (June 8) in Napa, California, and will stay on the road here in North America and over in Europe throughout the summer months before linking up with Steel Pulse come August. Marley recently stopped at the set of “The Late Late Show” last week to perform his new album’s title track.
Steel Pulse have been bringing the sound and positive vibes of reggae to British audiences since forming in the mid-1970s. The band gained much notoriety thanks to becoming the first non-Jamaican act to win a Grammy for “Best Reggae Album” when Babylon the Bandit came out back in 1986. The group has seen numerous lineup shifts over the decades, but is still fronted by co-founding member and guitarist David Hinds.
