The upcoming Tauranga Marley concert will support the Kaikoura earthquake relief efforts, in the spirit of Bob Marley's vision of unity and 'one love'.

Concert-goers would be able to add another ticket to their purchase for a donation of either $10 or $25 to support the Red Cross earthquake appeal.

Organisers of the MARLEY NZ All-Stars concert announced they would support the Red Cross appeal through the December 9 concert in Tauranga.

The money raised would go directly to the Red Cross, which would ensure it got to those communities who needed it most following the 7.8 magnitude South Island earthquake last week.
