On November 24, 2014, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Uprising Live! by Bob Marley on DVD, DVD + CD set, and Digital Video (pre-book order date October 31). This is the first ever DVD release of this classic concert, which originally aired on the famed German television series Rockpalast, from Bob Marley’s final tour.
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 passing 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 Westfalen Stadium in Germeny. Now, Rockpalast is presented here on DVD for the first time, with footage fully restored under the supervision of Cedella Marley and Ziggy Marley.
On Uprising Live!, Bob Marley is in superb form and deliver 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 This Be Love” 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.
February 6th 2015 will be, what would have been, Bob Marley’s 70th birthday and, with very few Bob Marley live concerts available on DVD, Uprising Live! will be a welcome addition for any fan.
