    Bob Marley’s last ever outdoor concert was at Dalymount Park in Dublin in 1980. An original poster for that event is included in Aidan Foley’s live internet auction of 283 lots on Monday April 13. The poster for an afternoon in the park on Sunday, July 6 of that year lists Bob Marley and The Wailers with special guests The Average White Band. Lot 102 is estimated at 1,000-1,200 on Easy Live Auctions.

    Marley’s last concert was at the Stanley Theatre in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in September 1980. He had been diagnosed with malignant melanoma in 1977 and at this stage it had spread to his brain. He died in May 1981.
