KINGSTON, Jamaica — An annual concert that draws hundreds of tourists to celebrate Bob Marley’s birthday has been cancelled for the first time since its inception in 1992 over noise complaints.

Police denied promoter Clive Pringle an event permit because of several run-ins with police and residents in Negril, superintendent Dezeita Taylor said Thursday.

The Bob Marley Birthday Bash that Pringle organized every Feb. 6 regularly exceeded the 2 a.m. curfew established under the Noise Abatement Act, she said.

Last year Pringle was fined $560, police said.

Pringle said he appealed, but doubts the concert will be held.

The show was launched in 1992 in Negril – a seaside town west of Kingston – and has attracted up to 3,500 people, Pringle said.

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett recently called for a revision of the Noise Abatement Act to extend time for events popular with tourists.

Bob Marley birthday bashes are held worldwide in places including London, Hawaii and Miami.
