Reggae royalty Damian Marley to play one night in Brixton! Reggae | Tuesday 22nd May 2018 | David O2 Academy Brixton DamianMarley Following the success of last year’s Grammy-winning Stony Hill, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley will be performing one night at Brixton’s O2 Academy as part of the European leg of the reggae artist’s summer tour. Though Stony Hill was Marley’s first solo effort since his acclaimed 2005 album Welcome to Jamrock, the singer kept busy in the interim with a steady stream of pop and hip-hop collaborations, including his 2010 Nas team-up album Distant Relatives. His latest work, however, offers a purer exploration of modern reggae while covering subjects ranging from medical marijuana to police brutality. Expect a spirited set when Marley comes to London, which may also include one or two songs from his father Bob Marley, amidst his own material. Damian Marley is performing at the O2 Academy in Brixton, 1st July. Tickets are available here.
