The Wonder Dream Concert was an historic concert held on October 4, 1975, at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. The concert was headlined by Stevie Wonder who was joined on the bill by Bob Marley & The Wailers and his former bandmates Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. The concert is sometimes known as the Wailers Reunion Show, as it was the first time the original Wailers had performed together since 1973 and the last time they ever would.

The concert was a benefit concert for the Jamaican Institute for the Blind and was opened by Third World. Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes were scheduled to play but did not show.

For Stevie Wonder's encore, Stevie called for Bob to join him on stage and they played "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Superstition" together. Another notable moment was the last performance of the original Wailers' first hit "Simmer Down", originally from 1964.

The tracks the Wailers played were (in this order):

Rastaman Chant Nice Time Simmer Down One Love Dream Land Fighting Against Convictions Mark Of The Beast You Can't Blame The Youth Legalize It So Jah Seh No Woman, No Cry Jah Live

Stevie Wonder then sang with his band: Golden Lady / Too High You And I Too Shy To Say / As All In Love Is Fair Don't You Worry 'bout A Thing Drum Solo Boogie On Reggae Woman I Was Made to Love Her Earth Angel Ain't Too Proud to Beg / I Heard It Through the Grapevine / Uptight (Everything's Alright) / Respect / What'd I Say My Cherie Amour Fingertips You Haven't Done Nothin' Living for the City You Are the Sunshine of My Life Then the aforementioned "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Superstition" were performed as Wonder's encore.
