Bob Marley’s marijuana use is often mischaracterized. He actually wasn’t much of a recreational smoker, instead viewing it as a holy herb, inline with his Rastafarian religion.
But he still helped blaze a trail for the normalization and acceptance of marijuana, and you can see some of that history at the Bob Marley One Love Experience. So grab your tickets and celebrate the most wonderful time of year with Bob!
The Bob Marley One Love Experience at Ovation Hollywood features over 15,000 square feet of photographs, stories and artifacts that will immerse you in the life of the icon, revolutionary and groundbreaking musician. The experience has been a massive hit with Angelenos, so much so that One Love has extended its run through May 20!
Step into the world of Bob Marley as you journey through a unique music room, experience an expansive Jamaican forest, dance through a silent disco and experience the artwork of renowned street artists such as Mr. Brainwash and The Postman.
Marley’s music career is just one element of the One Love Experience. His love of family, Jamaican pride, humanitarian spirit and dedication to spreading positivity throughout the world are all tangible pieces of the experience. There are even spaces dedicated to his favorite pastimes: football and ping pong.
Cedella Marley, Bob’s daughter and Director of his foundation, says about One Love: “The experience can be enjoyed by all generations and we look forward to continuing to spread Daddy’s music and message to the globe.”
The One Love Experience received rave reviews in London and Toronto, with The Times saying, “The musical exhibition celebrates the reggae phenomenon Bob Marley (1945-81) through unseen photographs, family memorabilia and rare footage, but it’s the multisensory interactivity, capturing his unifying legacy, that sets the show apart. It’s one for music lovers of all types, not just diehard fans.”
Guided Tours are available on the weekends for fans seeking a deeper look into the experience. VIP packages that include an exclusive vinyl embossed with the One Love Experience (OLE) logo, an event poster, and a souvenir laminate are also available.
The Bob Marley One Love Experience is open at Ovation Hollywood, directly next to the Dolby Theatre. Tickets are still available for the all-ages exhibit, and you won’t want to miss this exclusive and perspective-expanding experience. Get your tickets here and share in the positive vibrations!
