    Bob Marley 1977 Large Paper Concert Poster from Paris, France An original advertising poster for Bob Marley & the Wailers live in concert in Paris, France on Tuesday, May 10, 1977, touring behind his brand new album Exodus.

    This was, in fact, the opening night for Marley's Exodus tour, which never reached American shores. Marley had a strong following in France, and in fact Exodus would end up selling more copies in France than in the United States. So it was only fitting that this tour opened in Paris.

    Exodus was Marley's second-most commercially successful album after Rastaman Vibration from the previous year, and has been credited with the LP that finally catapulted him to international stardom.

    This tour, and this opening night, was the first since an assassination attempt on Marley's life in December 1976 compelled him to move to London, where he spent two years in self-imposed exile. Perhaps partly as a result, Exodus stayed on the British album charts for over a year (twice as long as America) and yielded four hit singles: "Exodus," "Waiting in Vain," "Jamming" and "One Love/People Get Ready."

    Poster measures a commanding 30 1/2" x 48". Was once eighth-folded, but has been flattened for many years. Graded Very Good Plus due to the fold marks throughout. COA from Heritage Auctions.
