Bob Marley and the Wailers, Orpheum, Madison, WI 1978

Bob Marley and the Wailers kick off the U.S. leg of their Kaya tour on May 18, 1978 in Ann Arbor, Michigan with The Imperials.  Over the next few weeks they visit several college towns in the mid-west, playing mid-sized music halls and theaters.  They play the Orpheum Theater in Madison, WI on May 25, 1978.  Madison is home to a rather huge university – University of Wisconsin, Madison.

The Orpheum Theatre is a live performance and musical theater in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, located at 216 State Street, one block from the Wisconsin State Capitol building.

This review of the show was featured in VARIETY on June 7, 1978.
