A Ziggy Marley Love Fest at Washington, DC’s Howard Theatre

Ziggy Marley performs at the newly renovated historic Howard Theatre in Washington, DC

Ziggy Marley, the eldest son of reggae icon Bob Marley, is on a Wild and Free Tour through the USA and Canada. And on Wednesday June 13, the five-time Grammy Award winner lit up the stage at Washington, DC’s historic Howard Theatre with a mix of songs from his own repertoire and a sprinkling of his father’s classics. The tour takes the name of his latest studio album, which was released last June, and features guest appearances from the late Heavy D and Ziggy’s own son Daniel. Media were given a three-song limit of time to shoot photos and video; I arrived late but managed to squeeze off a few shots before security located me and I fled with my camera. I returned to enjoy the rest of the show, of course, in time to see Ziggy Marley launch into his eighties hits “Tomorrow People” and “Look Who’s Dancing.” And even as the crowd sang, danced  and chanted along, the vibe in the theatre was still unmistakably mellow; you could say it was more of a love fest than anything, with Ziggy frequently smiling and shaking hands with the lucky fans up in front of the stage. Aptly, then, he closed the show with the title track of his Grammy winning “Love is My Religion.” You can peep the other photos below that we took at the show. Bless…
