The official YouTube channel of Bob Marley recently delivered a special surprise for fans of the reggae legend by sharing the musician’s iconic Live at Rainbow concert from 1977.
The concert, which was the last of four performed at London’s Rainbow Theater in June 1997, saw Marley and his backing band The Wailers deliver a 13-song setlist. It included classics like “I Shot the Sheriff” and “No Woman No Cry,” alongside 18-minutes long encore medley consisting of “Jamming,” “Get Up, Stand Up,” and “Exodus.”
Some of the footage from the gig was already available online before, but this is the first time fans can check it out in full and in HD quality.
While watching the concert, fans will also be able to contribute donations that will benefit the music community affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Spotify will match the donations with a contribution to MusiCares up to a total of $10 million through the Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief.
Bob Marley was originally scheduled to perform six shows at Rainbow Theater in early June as the final stop on the supporting tour for his seminal record Exodus. However, only four took place, last one on June 4th, while the two remaining were canceled due to Marley’s toe injury.
