EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts
Jack Singer Concert Hall
Due to overwhelming popular demand Ziggy Marley returns to Calgary on September 29, 2014 after his sold out 2013 concert in the Jack Singer Concert Hall! Bearing a famous surname and musical lineage, Marley has established his own presence on stages around the world for over a quarter-century.
A six-time Grammy award winner, Emmy winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter and producer, Ziggy Marley has released twelve albums to much critical acclaim. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley.
For Ziggy Marley, his latest vehicle of expression is the album Fly Rasta - representing a galactic sonic journey. Fly Rasta fulfills his mission by marrying Ziggy’s distinctive reggae sound with elements of psychedelica, rock, funk, soul and pop.
Opening Act: Jory Kinjo (J.k & the Relays) & Vic Ruggiero (The Slackers) with Burnis Stubbs
An alumni of our Alberta Music Series who also opened for BB King, Bad Religion and The Slackers, Calgarian Jory Kinjo opens for Ziggy Marley. We are excited to welcome him back for this fantastic night of reggae.

The Jack Singer Concert Hall in Arts Commons is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America. Home of Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, BD&P World Music, and TD Jazz, audiences are treated to some of the world's finest musical events. The hall also welcomes a spectrum of events each season from TED talks and National Geographic speakers, to wedding dinners on the stage and rock stars on tour.
Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
