A special all-star tribute concert celebrating the 40th anniversary of Bob Marley & the Wailers‘ classic album Exodus will be held November 1 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
The show, dubbed Exodus 40 Live, will feature performances by the late Marley’s sons Ziggy and Stephen, as well as by acclaimed producer Don Was, The Neville Brothers‘ Cyril Neville, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, R&B singer Aloe Blacc and others.
Tickets for the concert go on sale September 29, at 10 a.m. PT and can be purchased at the Orpheum Theatre box office and Ticketmaster locations, Ticketmaster.com and by phoning 800-745-3000.
Marley & the Wailers recorded Exodus in London in early 1977; at that point, Marley had left his home country of Jamaica following an assassination attempt. The album features such well-known songs as “Jamming,” the title track and “One Love/People Get Ready.” Exodus peaked at #20 on the Billboard 200 and has gone on to sell more than 500,000 copies in the U.S.
The Exodus 40 Live concert follows the June release of an expanded Exodus reissue called Exodus 40: The Movement Continues that features a reworked version of the album curated by Ziggy Marley.
“After listening to Ziggy’s restatement of Exodus 40: The Movement Continues, the album struck me as something so powerful and rarely seen live in its entirety,” says Was. “I am thrilled to be a part of this show with Ziggy and Stephen, and perform these songs for the fans.”
The show is the latest in a series of tribute concerts produced by Blackbird Presents. For more information on the event, visit Exodus40Live.com.
