Bob Marley fans are truly being indulged at the moment- only a few weeks after the opening of Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical, it’s now been announced that the reggae icon will be the subject of a new, immersive exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery.
Bob Marley: One Love Experience will be making its global debut for a ten-week run beginning in February at the Chelsea based gallery, and promises to be a must for anyone interested in the life and times of the celebrated artist. In an exhibition that will engage and fire up all senses, visitors will be able to see and learn about previously unseen Marley photos and memorabilia.
The exhibit promises to immerse you in Marley’s lifestyle, passion and influences, as well as the enduring legacy that he has left behind. It’ll feature “giant art installations” throughout the gallery, and celebrate his music and hits like Three Little Birds, Redemption Song and Jamming. Marley’s great love of football and his support of Pele and Tottenham Hotspur will also be explored.
Areas of the exhibit include ‘One Love Forest’, which is described as being “multi-sensory”, ‘Soul Shakedown Studio’, which brings audience members into an immersive listening experience, and ‘The Beautiful Life’, which will delve into the legendary musician’s personal life.
For Marley super-fans, or anyone looking for an even more complete experience, the exhibition also offers a number of packages alongside standard tickets. The “VIP Package” gives you a fast track ticket into the exhibit, as well as access to the Jamming Lounge which promises “special, immersive fan experiences”, and a chance to see extra Marley collectibles not shown in the rest of the museum.
“The Private Tour” package meanwhile offers a private tour for four people from a “Marley expert”, whilst the “Two Little Birds Date Night” offers evening entry, free drinks and a special edition vinyl LP to take home. There’s also packages for family trips, a Saturday DJ night with extra merchandise to bag, and even a “Yoga In The Cannabis Forest” package, which gives you a 45 minute yoga session to let go of the stresses of life.
