Concerts Wiki

The Babylon by Bus Tour was a concert tour organised to support the album Babylon by Bus by Bob Marley & The Wailers. It was also to popularize Marley and reggae music in Asia and Oceania.

The tour started in Japan on 5 April 1979, and ended in Honolulu, Hawaii, on 6 May 1979. The tour should have started with two shows in Ivory Coast in mid-March, but both concerts had been cancelled due to unknown reasons. The first leg led Marley through Japan where he performed for the first time, the second leg took place in various Oceanian places (New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii). It was Marley's only tour that including concerts in Asia and Oceania.
