Bob Marley, Santa Monica, California December 2, 1979

The Survival Tour was a concert tour organized to support the album Survival by Bob Marley & The Wailers. It was Marley’s second-to-last tour.

The tour started in Boston in late October 1979, and ended in Libreville, Gabon, on 6 January 1980. During 1979, which was the International Year of the Child, the band made appearances at a few benefit concerts for children, as was the case on 10 August 1979, in Jamaica, prior to the Survival Tour, and on 15 December 1979 in Nassau, Bahamas. The tour took place mainly in the United States, but also included performances in the Caribbean and in Africa. - N.P.
