Live At The Rainbow

Bob Marley & The Wailers (1977)
It was 45 years ago today that Bob Marley & The Wailers released their ninth studio album, Exodus.  The band performed at London's Rainbow Theatre the next day in what would be the final show of the Exodus tour, which abruptly ended after 15 shows due to a serious injury suffered by Bob Marley at a football game.

The concert was professionally recorded, with 35mm prints of the show screened at theaters all over the world.  This poster is an advertisement of one of these screenings which took place in Paris.

In June 2020, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the full concert was shared by the official Bob Marley YouTube Channel to raise money through the Spotify Covid-19 Music Relief Project to help support those in the music community who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.  I'm not sure if donations are still being accepted two years later, but the concert is still available to stream and enjoy.
