Bob Marley Experience & Theatre: Montego Bay Attractions, Jamaica
The Half Moon Shopping Village, just five miles east of downtown Montego Bay, is home to the Bob Marley Experience. A video documentary screened in a 68seat auditorium tells the story of this great reggae singer. Shows every hour on the hour are a touching tribute to Bob Marley. This tastefully produced documentary film is a must for all lovers of his music and for those who have never had the pleasure of watching Bob Marley in concert. Visitors can buy Tshirts, CDs, videos and other Marley memorabilia from the shop next door.
Bob Marley's compilation album, Legend has sold 15 million copies since the singer's death of cancer in 1981. The album Catch a Fire, recorded in 1972 and made with the Wailers Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer was the first step on their march to world recognition. Marley now has 23 albums to his name (a few of them published posthumously) and was responsible for recording classic reggae hits such as One Love, I Shot the Sheriff and No Woman, No Cry.
Marley was born in Nine Mile, a small rural village in the Parish of St Ann, not far from Montego Bay in the mountainous hinterland of western Jamaica. This is where he is also buried and it is possible to visit his mausoleum and tour his childhood home.
An inspiration to countless Jamaican musicians, as well as lovers of peace, humility and talent around the globe, the legacy of Bob Marley lives on. Eric Clapton described him thus: "I'd say he was a great lyric writer, a musical genius and a great leader of men." Long live Robert Nesta Marley!
