Bob Marley (Arm Outstretched), Los Angeles, 1979

About the image
Bob Marley's unforgettable look is captured beautifully in this shot of him performing onstage, bathed in the spotlight. One of the most iconic, and important figures in music, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Bob Marley #11 on their list of "Greatest Artists of All Time". He was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

The Survival Tour in 1979 was a concert tour organized to support the album Survival by Bob Marley & The Wailers. It was Marley's second-to-last tour and it started in Boston in late October 1979, and ended in Libreville, Gabon, on 6 January 1980. During 1979, which was the International Year of the Child, the band made appearances at a few benefit concerts for children, as was the case on 10 August 1979, in Jamaica, prior to the Survival Tour, and on 15 December 1979 in Nassau, Bahamas. We believe this shot is from a benefit concert he gave for famed boxer Sugar Ray Robinso's Youth Foundation at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles, November, 1979.
