Fans endure wait, but Marleys impress
It was a night of waiting for patrons at the much anticipated House of Marley concert at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Thursday night. Many turned up at 7 pm, expecting gates to be opened early for the advertised 9 pm start, but they weren’t allowed into the venue until 10.30 pm. The opening acts included eight-time Road March winner Superblue, his daughter Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez and Bunji Garlin and Collis Duranty, who put the audience in the mood for the big reggae acts. But more waiting ensued, and after an hour-long delay, patrons were heard grumbling that the headline acts were taking too long to hit the stage. However, when Ky-Mani Marley appeared onstage at around 1 am, the atmosphere changed, as he wasted no time getting into his hits. By the third song of his 30-minute set, Ky-Mani had the crowd totally engrossed and grooving to some of his late father Bob’s greatest hits like Is This Love and Redemption Song.
