In honor of the 40th anniversary of Bob Marley and the Wailer's historic Exodus album, two of Marley's sons Stephen and Ziggy and a cast of some of today's biggest artists assembled at the Orpheum Theatre Nov. 1st to pay homage to a music icon who gave the world so many memorable songs and spread the message of peace and love. However, the show was much more than just Exodus in its entirety. This show fell on the final game of the MLB World Series which was a major loss to our city, but the music of Marley cheered up the sold-out crowd. As the night progressed one guest after the next came out to perform Marley's classics with a house band including music producer and bassist Don Was. The Marley brothers performed four songs including "Could You Be Loved," and "Redemption Song," before playing Exodus. However, the title track to Exodus was performed as the last song of the set before the encore. Special guest performers were Citizen Cope on "The Heathen," Aloe Blacc on "Waiting In Vain," and "Three Little Birds," Jim James on "Turn Your Light Down Low," Tom Morello on "Exodus," and "I Shot the Sheriff," and Gary Clark Jr. on "No Woman, No Cry." For the final song, "Get Up, Stand Up," all performers throughout the night joined in.
