Following a live performance of his latest single “Play With Sky” featuring Ben Harper on “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” Ziggy Marley was set to announce he’ll headline City National Grove of Anaheim’s Drive-In OC concert series on Saturday, Oct. 24.

The Grammy Award-winning reggae artist and son of late legend Bob Marley will perform two sets: a kid-friendly 2 p.m. matinee featuring Norm the Rhythm Child, and then a more traditional evening show at 7:30 p.m. with special guest Zuri.

Tickets are $160-$300 per vehicle (with up to six patrons per vehicle who must all have a safety belt) and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept 25 via AXS.com.

Marley just dropped his new album “More Family Time.” Marley said he tried to capture the energy of his 4-year-old son in music in an effort to captivate kids and keep parents engaged while not departing from his signature reggae sound. The album features several guests artists including Sheryl Crow, Lisa Loeb, Tom Morello, Busta Rhymes, Alanis Morissette, his brother, Stephen Marley, and actress Jamie Lee Curtis who reads sections of her new children’s book.

Marley’s kids including Judah, Gideon, Abraham and Isaiah make special appearances on the album along with their family puppy, Romeo. A portion of the proceeds from the album benefit Marley’s URGE non-profit which supports education and social development of children of the Chepstow Primary School and the One Love Youth Camp in Jamaica.

The Drive-In OC concert series is a predominately contactless experience, including entry, ticketing, concessions and restrooms. All tickets must be purchased in advance and there will be no on-site box office.

Vehicles will be spaced 10 feet apart and staggered to provide distancing, appropriate sight lines and guests may use the empty adjacent spot to set up folding chairs and blankets. Masks are required whenever guests leave their designated parking spots.
