Marley, the oldest son of music legend Bob Marley, made his recording debut in 1979 with a group comprised of his father and three siblings. The group became known as The Melody Makers and released 14 albums over three decades. Marley began his solo career in 2003 when he released Dragonfly with Ghetto Youths Crew, a record label he created while working with the United Nations. In 2006, he released his second solo album, Love Is My Religion, which won a GRAMMY Award for "Best Reggae Album."
His third solo album, Family Time, was released in 2009 and was dedicated to children worldwide. The album featured his mother, Rita Marley, as well as musicians Paul Simon, Willie Nelson and Jack Johnson, among others. Marley later earned another GRAMMY for "Best Musical Album for Children." He won his third solo GRAMMY (sixth overall) when the 2013 live release Ziggy Marley In Concert won "Best Reggae Album" at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards in January 2014. Marley is scheduled to release the highly anticipated album Fly Rasta this month.

Returning to the Mandalay Bay Beach following its 2012 show, multi-platinum rock group 311 will play an extended set of hits, rarities, covers and classics backed by a state-of-the-art light and special effects show.

The band's 10th studio album, Universal Pulse, was released in July 2011 and debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 with the single "Sunset in July" reaching No. 7 on the Alternative radio chart. Last month the band released its most recent album Stereolithic featuring the single "Five of Everything."
