"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Ziggy Marley" will air live on "The Joint," Sirius channel 42 on Thursday, August 9 at 9:00 pm ET. The special will be hosted by SiriusXM host Pat McKay.

The event is part of SiriusXM's "Town Hall" series, intimate gatherings with iconic musicians and studio audiences of SiriusXM listeners. Previous "SiriusXM Town Hall" specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Coldplay, Ringo Starr, Roger Waters, Renee Fleming, Gregg Allman, Usher, Ronnie Dunn and the surviving members of Nirvana.

The "Town Hall" special will include the five-time Grammy®-winning musician, actor, artist, activist and humanitarian and host of SiriusXM's Ziggy Marley's Legends of Reggae answering a variety of questions from the studio audience about his most recent album, Wild and Free, and the August 7th DVD and Blu-ray release of the critically-acclaimed documentary about his legendary father, MARLEY.

In addition to the Q&A session, the "Town Hall" will also feature a live, in-studio performance by Marley. SiriusXM listeners will hear music from his current album as well as reggae classics written by his father.

"SiriusXM is a great way for me to share my love of reggae and world music with fans across the U.S. and Canada, and I'm looking forward to participating in their Town Hall next month," said Ziggy Marley.

"Ziggy is one of the world's foremost reggae artists and an integral part of SiriusXM's reggae family, and we look forward to the extended discussion between Ziggy and fans about reggae music and his family's involvement in this evolving and enduring international music genre," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.

Ziggy Marley hosts Ziggy Marley's Legends of Reggae, the monthly show on The Joint featuring Marley sharing his unique perspective on music and culture and introducing listeners to his favorite reggae music and sources of inspiration (with some rarities), plucked from his own personal collection. The show also includes music from the Marley family, including material from Ziggy's most recent solo studio album, Wild and Free, and throwback selections dating back to his days as a Melody Maker. Ziggy Marley's Legends of Reggae airs the first Saturday of every month on The Joint at 12:00 pm ET.
