Marley''s sons plan birthday gig 2/1/2007
Four of Bob Marley''s sons are to stage a concert in Jamaica to mark the 62nd anniversary of the reggae star''s birth.
The Smile Jamaica event on 10 February - held in the singer''s birthplace of Nine Miles, St Ann - shares its name with an historic 1976 Marley concert.

Stephen, Ky-Mani, Damian and Julian Marley will appear - but their older brother Ziggy will not.

The concert forms part of Bob Marley Week, a week of celebrations marking his birth on 6 February 1945.

Famous for such reggae classics as No Woman, No Cry and I Shot the Sheriff, the Rastafarian performer died of cancer in 1981 at the age of 36.

Marley''s children would be "trying to push a message of peace", spokesman Jerome Hamilton told the Associated Press.


Marley''s widow Rita - with whom the musician had three children - is expected to attend.

Stephen, Ky-Mani, Damian and Julian Marley have not performed in Jamaica on the same stage before. Each brother will present a separate set at the concert.

The original Smile Jamaica concert was held at National Heroes Park in Kingston.

Marley, having been attacked by gunmen the night before, initially announced he would only sing one song.

But he ended up performing for 90 minutes before a reported audience of 80,000.
