Rock Band DLC additions for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Wii

Legend, originally released in 1984, is the best selling reggae album of all time, selling 25 million albums in the United States alone and an additional 2.8 million in the United Kingdom. It features 14 of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ classic songs and was rereleased as a CD in 1990 – the version available for Rock Band download next week, featuring original album versions.

The album has been the recipient of many awards. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked it as No. 46 on the magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and at 1,000 weeks, it holds the honor of being the second longest-charting album in Billboard history. 

“Legend (Album)” will be available for download Sept. 21 in the Rock Band Music Store, and Sept. 23, to commemorate 30 years since Bob Marley’s last public performance, the Marley family will come together for a tribute concert and event benefitting their One Love Foundation. With 100 percent of the proceeds from the evening going to support the One Love “Not-For-Profit” Foundation, 2,800 fans will fill the Benedum Theatre (formerly The Stanley Theatre, the site of Marley’s last performance), in Pittsburgh, for a journey back in time. In addition to Stephen, Damian and Julian Marley, special guests will perform at various points during the evening. Rita Marley, “The Queen Mother” herself, will be traveling all the way from her home in Ghana, as well as Marcia Griffith (I Threes), who will also be performing.
