Bob Marley & Ibiza

The date was 28th June 1978. This was the night when Bob Marley and his Wailers played in Ibiza’s bullring for the first time on the island (and the penultimate time in Spain). The King of Reggae visited the island at the peak of his powers. The evening before the concert, they were interviewed at the house they were staying at in Sant Carles. Àngel Casas and Carlos Tena chatted with the Jamaican in the interview broadcast by Televisión Española. After that it was time for the most memorable concert in Ibiza’s history.

The venue was the, now demolished, bullring and each ticket cost a thousand pesetas. Although it wasn’t sold out, the concert was attended by several thousand lucky souls who will always be able to say: “I was there, and I was a witness of the magic of Bob Marley”.
