Saadiyat Beach Golf Club Celebrates Bob Marley’s 70th Birthday

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club will be jamming to the sounds of Bob Marley on Thursday, 5th February as they join millions around the world celebrating the icon’s 70th Birthday.

The Troon-managed Club, along with its sponsors Etihad Airways and Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotels and Villas, has organized a special show: The Legend – A Tribute To Bob Marley – a two hour extravaganza covering the very best of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ timeless classics.


A good night out is par for the course at what is becoming one of Saadiyat Island’s most vibrant night spots and the birthday celebrations of one of the world’s greatest musicians are not to be missed.  

Consisting of seven world-class musicians led by the charismatic Michael Anton Phillips, ‘The Legend’ will recreate the feel good vibes synonymous with the King of Reggae, entertaining crowds on the Event Lawn and creating a unique family friendly atmosphere.


Bob Marley has lost none of his appeal since his death in Florida, in 1981. His music is still as fresh and relevant today as it was when it was first recorded. Few artists before or after, can match his appeal – you’re just as likely to find him in your grannie’s record collection as on a 17-year-old’s iPhone playlist.


London-based lead singer Stephen, who has worked with acts such as The Mighty Diamonds and the Original Wailers, said: “Bob Marley’s music is still uniting the world, and generations after generations are still embracing the message and positive vibration that his music brings.

“He is the King of Reggae and it’s very important to celebrate his 70th Birthday. We are looking forward to a great party!”


Paul Booth, Director of Club Operations at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, added: “This is another great event to be held at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and one of many we’ll be holding this year. The feedback we have had from previous events is that people want to see live music in a great outdoor venue and we are happy to provide that. We are constantly looking for new ways to engage the community of Abu Dhabi and these live music events are a great way to do that. It will be a night to remember.”


Tickets cost AED100 per person.
