Stephen Marley has announced the dates for his ‘Babylon by Bus’ tour. Titled after Bob Marley and the Wailers’ 1978 live album, the shows will feature Stephen’s songs spanning his 40-plus year career alongside songs from his father’s catalog.

The 19-date U.S. trek kicks off on August 26th at Mateel Community Center in Redway, California and wraps at Salvage Station in Asheville, North Carolina on September 26th. The run includes a Bob Marley tribute concert with Stephen’s brother Ziggy Marley in celebration of what would have been their father’s 76th birthday year. The special show with the Marley brothers takes place on September 12th at BeachLife Festival in Redondo Beach, California.

A portion of each ticket sale from the upcoming tour will benefit  Ghetto Youths Foundation, a non-profit established by Stephen, Damian and Julian Marley, which provides aid to communities in need.

Earlier in the year, Stephen rounded out the celebrations for Bob Marley’s 75th birthday with a livestream performance and celebrated his own with a 4/20 livestream concert.
