Bob Marley’s historical Smile Jamaica concert held in Jamaica in 1976 will be commemorated by the Bob Marley Museum on December 2.
Smile Orange concert
The Bob Marley Museum in Jamaica will celebrate the 41st anniversary of the iconic Smile Jamaica concert on December 2.
To commemorate this defining moment in Bob Marley’s life where he performed to an audience of over 80,000 patrons, just two days after being shot, the museum will launch a series of night tours which will culminate in the very room in which Bob Marley was shot.
The celebration will run from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Bob Marley’s home at 56 Hope Road with several special guest performers, all paying tribute to the legend.
The event, being staged under the theme, “Make Someone Smile”, will also include a charitable component.
Part proceeds from the event will be used by the Bob Marley Foundation to fund a music room at the Haile Selassie High School.
Patrons are also being asked to donate non-perishable items which will be distributed to Reddies Children’s Home supported by the foundation.
