Due to huge demand, the NZ All-Stars will perform their celebration of Bob Marley again this summer. The show features a super-group of New Zealand music stars playing the hits of Bob Marley. Over 30 classics make up the show, which will be staged for one night only at THE TRUSTS ARENA on Thursday 30 November.

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, Logan Bell (Katchafire), Laughton Kora, Fran KoraAnnie Crummer, Boh Runga, Ria Hall, Anna Coddington and Joel Shadbolt (L.A.B) 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.

“This project has brought together our finest artists, many of whom had not played together before” explains concert promoter Jackie Sanders, “Everyone was buzzing during rehearsals and the first shows and that excitement and love for the music is infectious. The audience feels it too, it is a very special show.”

This will be the only chance to see the full length show in the North Island. Subscribers to Jacman Entertainment and Ticketek can purchase tickets from 8am today, Monday 31 July.
