Bob Marley & The Wailers - Rufaro Stadium, Zimbabwe [19th April,1980]


In 1980, Bob Marley and The Wailers had a visit to Zimbabwe.
You might have heard of the place?


It has been in the news recently...
... Do yourself a favour and please, check out some or all of the following sites and have a clue about the atrocious situation that is being allowed to continue by the rest of the world who, by doing nothing, are surely condoning the behaviour of the tyrannical dictator Mugabe.

I wouldn't profess to know the history and the ins and outs of the Land Redistribution and the plight of the farmers that seems to be at the root of so many of the problems but I do know enough about what is happening right there, right now, to innocent fucking people. I see film of children who are starving & frightened, people whose lives are becoming dangerously weakened and threatened. I just see what I know to be a terrible situation and it makes me sad that no other country steps in when they are needed. They stepped into Iraq of course as we all know but what is it about Africans? It won't be the first time that a generation of Africans have been left to die and the West has more or less let it happen and looked away.
This site is about music but music and politics are interlinked. Anyway, I am not trying to get you into politics. This is just about realising what horrors are going on not too far away from you and hoping that there can be a solution soon. What can I do? What can you do?
Well you can start by having a look and listen to this,

OK.
You really dropped by here looking for music and I promise I haven't let you down on that front today.

As I started to say Bob Marley went to Zimbabwe in 1980...here are the scant details I managed to find about this concert...
From this site..'ZIMBABWE INDEPENDENCE CELEBRATION
In April 1980, Bob Marley and the Wailers were afforded the highest honor of their musical careers. On April 18th, the country Rhodesia was to celebrate its independence from England and Bob Marley and The Wailers were invited to perform at the ceremony. From that day forward the African nation was to be called Zimbabwe. Officials from Zimbabwe's government-elect invited Marley and the band to perform at the Independence ceremonies. Cost was to be no barrier: Marley, whose "Zimbabwe" tune had proved inspirational to the ZANLA (Zimbabwe National Liberation Army) freedom fighters, was paying for it all out of his own pocket. He would be playing amidst the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, an enormous pyramid built by Solomon and Sheba.'



This show has often been mislabelled as taking place on April 17th, 1980. I only learned that today(after mislabelling it myself based on the labelling it had when I got it!) so I now realise it is actually from April 19th, the second of two shows Bob had scheduled to do..read more here

You MUST check out this article -
entitled 'When Bob Marley caused Riot inna Africa
from the very respectable 'Rasta Times'.


I hope you can enjoy this one. It took a while to update today and I am now wondering seriously how long I can keep this up as my health is sinking fast..aarrgghh..hehe
Seriously though it's becoming worse than shit.
