Description

The Uprising Tour lands in Glasgow

Uprising album by Bob Marley and the Wailers, signed and inscribed on the front cover in black ballpoint, "Ras Neville BMW, All the best, Bob Marley," who adds a small notation next to the artwork's leftmost fist. In fine condition, with light soiling. The record is included. The Uprising Tour was the last of Marley's lifetime and the biggest music tour of Europe in 1980. Beginning on May 30th, Marley and the Wailers played a total of 33 shows in Europe—the band played at the Apollo in Glasgow on July 10 and 11—before heading to the United States. Two days after collapsing while jogging in Central Park, and subsequently learning that his cancer has spread to his brain, Marley played his last concert on September 23, 1980, at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL and by a letter of provenance, which reads, in part: "The autograph was given to Neville who owned the small hotel 'BM' & the Wailers were staying in during their last concert in Glasgow (Park Circus). Neville owned a B.M.W. hence the reference at the top."
