I know what you're thinking...SHE'S a Marley fan? No way. It's true...I am. I think my son turned me on to the Wailers many years ago, and then in the 90's when I managed a Starbucks one of my employees (Justin) put the reggae tape in as soon as he got to work (I used to have to schedule him based on his music choices, as I didn't want to hear the exact same music every single day). My days were filled with Marley, Peter Tosh, and Yellowman.
That's why I got excited to learn that there's a new box set of the Live Forever concert at The Stanley Theatre in Pittsburgh, PA back on September 23, 1980. Marley may be gone, but thankfully you can still experience him LIVE FOREVER. Recorded over thirty years ago, while Bob Marley and the Wailers were touring their "Uprising, Live Forever" album, this collection of music offers a glimpse into the legend. The Limited Edition Super Deluxe Live Forever Box Set includes 2 CD + 3 180 Gram LPs.
“Bob’s music has always conveyed a message of hope, unity and love. It has brought countless people together as it did that night 30 years ago in Pittsburgh. To hear that music today and to be able to share it with a new generation shows that Bob is as relevant today as he was 30 years ago,” says Rita Marley.
While the box set doesn't street until February 1st, you can enter to win your own copy now on both twitter and facebook from Universal Music Group.
Or you could just scroll down and win a double CD of the concert right here!
Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh PA September 23, 1980 [2 CD Deluxe Edition] (that you can win here) and Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA, September 23, 1980 [2CD / 3LP] [Super Deluxe Edition] are both available for pre-order from Amazon.com
