International icon and Grammy Award-winning artist Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley has announced his first solo U.K. performances since the release of the critically acclaimed album Stony Hill. Tickets go on sale on 10am Friday 16 February 2018 at MetropolisMusic.com

Stony Hill, arriving at a moment when the rhythms of the Caribbean are all over the pop charts—with mostly light-hearted lyrical content—Stony Hill’s timing couldn’t be better. “It’s good to get some music out there that points to the foundation, the spirituality of it,” said Jr. Gong. “You don’t have to turn into a clown to sell the music,” Damian continues, chastising those whose appeal is based on stunts and gimmicks.

The youngest son of Reggae legend Bob Marley, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley garnered his own place in music history when he became the first ever Reggae artist to win a GRAMMY outside of the “Reggae” category, taking home an award for “Best Urban/Alternative” performance for his title single, “Welcome To Jamrock”. The acclaimed 2005 breakthrough disc Welcome To Jamrock, also won a GRAMMY for “Best Reggae” Album. Marley has been shaking up stages all over the world for the past few years, first in collaboration with Nas on their Distant Relatives project, and then when he went on to partner with Skrillex for their groundbreaking track “Make It Bun Dem,” and most recently his feature on the anthemic track “Bam” from JAY-Z’s 4:44 album.
