Notes

On September 23, 1980 Bob Marley, perhaps the greatest live performer the world has ever known, stepped onto a public stage for the last time. The show’s promoter, Rich Engler spoke about the show in a 2010 interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The day before Bob Marley and the Wailers were scheduled to play a sold-out concert at the Stanley Theatre in 1980, promoter Rich Engler got an ominous call from the reggae star’s agent.

“There might be a problem,” the agent told him. “Bob is not feeling very well. I don’t know what’s going on. I’ll keep you posted.”

Marley and the Wailers had just played two shows on the Uprising Tour opening for The Commodores at Madison Square Garden on Sept. 19-20. The next day he collapsed while jogging in Central Park and, during a hospital visit, was told the worst: The cancer he was diagnosed with three years earlier had spread, and he was advised to cease touring.

On the morning of the Sept. 23 show in Pittsburgh, Mr. Engler got another call.

“They’re headed there,” the agent said, “but I would be surprised if he plays.”

“Around 2ish,” Mr. Engler says, “they came in to do a soundcheck. I was looking around for Bob and found him in the dressing room, sitting on the couch, looking depressed and ill. I said, ‘I heard you’re not feeling well. I’m concerned. I hope you’re feeling better. Are you going to play?’

“He said, ‘Mon, I wasn’t going to, but I’m going to for my band and everybody. It’s a sold-out show. I’m going to do it.’ “

According to the promoter, the reggae star added, “The guys need the money.”

This concert was officially released in 2011 as Live Forever.

Another interesting note about this show is that keyboardist Ian “Natty Wailer” Wynter sat in on keys.
