The Wailers Do Manchester, 1973/’76

This OK Dave concert poster for The Wailers’ gig at Manchester Polytechnic on Saturday, November 24, 1973 sheds new light on the show, which bombed terribly with less than 200 attending! According to the poster, The Wailers appeared alongside Ingroville & OK Disco.

Big up the Manchester District Music Archive for sharing the photos…
