The Uprising Tour was a concert tour organized to support the album "Uprising" by Bob Marley & The Wailers. It was Marley's last tour and the biggest music tour of Europe in that year.

The tour started at the Hallenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland, where Marley performed for the first time, on May 30, 1980, and ended at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on September 23, 1980, which was Marley's last show ever; two days before, after two shows at the Madison Square Garden, Marley collapsed in the Central Park while jogging, and was told to immediately cancel the U.S. leg, but flew to Pittsburgh to perform one final performance. He later appeared on stage at a concert by Stevie Wonder (it's disputed whether in Pittsburgh's Civic Arena or in Washington), but didn't perform. Then he left for Germany to receive cancer treatment which eventually was not successful, as Marley died in May 1981.

The concert in Dortmund on July 13 has been broadcast in the 1990s by German TV station WDR in their Rockpalast concert series. Numerous other performances from the Uprising Tour have also been taped on video.

The performance in Milan, Italy on June 27, when Marley performed for about 120,000 people in the sold-out San Siro stadium, is historical and still regarded in Italy as the biggest music event ever. At that time no other musician had reached to have a bigger audience than Marley till then.

While on tour Marley performed for the first time in Switzerland, Italy, Ireland and Scotland.

Setlist Summary

Most shows had a standard setlist which closed with "Exodus", and an encore set which usually ended with "Get Up, Stand Up". There were performances of an earlier song, "Trenchtown Rock", which is not featured on any of Marley's Island albums released at that time.

For the short U.S. leg of the tour Marley changed the setlist similar to that one from the Kaya Tour in 1978: he dropped "Revolution" and "Natty Dread" and re-included songs like "Burnin' And Lootin'" or "Them Belly Full" at the beginning, or "The Heathen" and the "Running Away" / "Crazy Baldhead" medley in the middle of the setlist.

From show to show sometimes an additional song was edged in the middle of the setlist, like "Lively Up Yourself", "Kinky Reggae", "Roots, Rock, Reggae", "Coming In From The Cold", "Bad Card", "Kaya", "Trenchtown Rock", "We And Them", "Three Little Birds", "Talkin' Blues" or "Forever Loving Jah". Live performances of each of these songs happened very rarely during the tour.
