Stephen Marley Kicks off 50-City Babylon By Bus Tour
Following two back-to-back acoustic U.S. tours over the last year, the eight-time GRAMMY-winning musician Stephen “Ragga” Marley is back on the road again, this time accompanied by full band. His Babylon By Bus Tour kicks off today (July 5) in Ormond Beach, FL and sweeps nearly 50 cities stateside before coming to a close on Sept. 12 in Garden Grove, CA.
Cementing his iconic status while proudly carrying on the Marley legacy, Stephen aptly titled his tour after his father’s iconic 1978 live album with The Wailers. In 1982 review Rolling Stone raved “Babylon by Bus reverberates with an awesome faith in the power of love in all its difficult and rewarding forms.”
“Just as my father did so many times, this summer I will criss-cross the country — appearing in cities near and far, bringing our music and message of love and unity to people from all walks of life, reaching out through the universal power of music which unites us all…And we are coming to a city, town, or festival near you — by bus,” proclaims Stephen.
Throughout the set, fans can expect him to perform hits from his four solo studio albums, all of which hit #1 on Billboard Reggae’s album chart, as well as cover some of his father’s classics. The family’s music lineage spans generations, Stephen will also share the musical stylings of his daughter DJ Shacia Päyne and son and reggae artist Jo Mersa Marley, who will open on select dates. See full schedule below.
Stephen is also featured on Salaam Remi’s new song “40 Days and 40 Nights,”, a schedule relatable to the Marley road warrior. The track is off of the Netflix soundtrack for Grass Is Greener documentary.
