Uprising was the last album by Bob Marley to be released in his lifetime. The day it reached the shops on 1 June 1980, Marley and the Wailers opened for Fleetwood Mac at the 69,000-capacity Reitstadion in Munich. It was the second night of the Uprising tour, a European trek which took them to some of the biggest venues on the continent and to several countries they hadn’t played before, including Switzerland, Ireland, Scotland and Italy. Marley died on 11 May 1981 in Miami, Florida, en route from Germany to Jamaica. He was 36. Whether or not Marley suspected his time was running out while he was making Uprising, his final musical statement was an album freighted with incredible emotional resonance. Much like Survival before it, Uprising was a deep and serious collection of songs that explored fire and brimstone themes of sin and salvation.
