Late, Late Night FDL: Could You Be Loved

Bob Marley – Could You Be Loved

Eagle Rock is set to release a DVD on Marley’s final tour…

Uprising Live! features footage of the live concert captured during Marley’s final trek, The Uprising tour in the summer of 1980, that originally aired on the German television series Rockpalast. {…}

The Uprising Tour ran in Europe from May 30th to July 13th 1980 with five further dates in the USA in September. It was Bob Marley’s last tour before his tragically early death in May 1981 at the age of just 36. The tour was in support of the Uprising album, (released June 10th 1980) and just a few days later, this show would be filmed from Dortmund’s Westfalenhalle. Now, Rockpalast is presented here on DVD for the first time, with footage fully restored under supervision of Cedella Marley and Ziggy Marley.

On Uprising Live!, Bob Marley is in superb form and delivers a set full of energy and charisma, including the icon songs “No Woman, No Cry,” “Exodus,” “I Shot The Sheriff,” “Redemption Song,” “Is This Love,” “Jamming,” “Get Up, Stand Up,” “Could You Be Loved” and many more. The show opens with a short set by the I Threes – Marley’s backing vocalists – who traditionally would perform a few songs before Marley took the stage.

What’s on your mind tonite…?
