    Description

    Bob Marley and the Wailers 1979 Honolulu, Hawaii Concert Handbill. An original concert-advertising flyer for Bob Marley's appearance at the Waikiki Shell on Sunday, May 6, 1979. This handbill originated from the collection of Hawaii's pre-eminent concert promoter of the era, Tom Moffatt, so its provenance is perfect. It is the exact same item we sold at auction last July, being re-consigned by that winner.

    This Sunday evening show was the closing night of Marley's seven-week Babylon by Bus tour. This was the only tour Marley ever conducted that featured stops in Asia and Oceania (Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii). The tour was supposed to begin with two shows in West Africa, but those gigs were canceled for unknown reasons.

    So the tour commenced on April 5 for six shows in Japan, and then moved to Auckland, New Zealand for one concert, then shifted to Australia for eight shows, and then closed in Hawaii with two concerts: May 5 in Lahaina, and this one on May 6 in Honolulu.

    Marley lived for only about 15 months after this show, and then tragically succumbed to cancer.

    Measures 7" x 9.75" and is in Mint condition, with the small black smudging in the lower left corner being simply a printer's flaw, not damage of any kind. COA from Heritage Auctions.
