The Natty Dread Tour was a concert tour organised to support the album Natty Dread by Bob Marley & The Wailers.

The tour began in Miami, Florida, on June 5, 1975, and ended in Manchester, England, on July 20, 1975. In late June Marley did 14 shows in seven days at Paul's Mall in Boston. During the second tour leg in England the first live album Live! was recorded at the Lyceum Ballroom in London. Before the tour started Marley performed a concert along with Jackson Five in March in Kingston. After the tour Marley performed the Wonder Dream Concert, featuring Stevie Wonder and his old bandmates Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer.

While on the Natty Dread Tour Marley did his first performance outside Jamaica, England and the United States when playing the Massey Hall in Toronto, Canada.

Setlist

The standard setlist of the tour mostly looked like the following:

  • "Trenchtown Rock"
  • "Slave Driver"
  • "Burnin' And Lootin'"
  • "Concrete Jungle"
  • "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)"
  • "Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)" (frequently)
  • "I Shot The Sheriff"
  • "Kinky Reggae"
  • "Midnight Ravers"
  • "No Woman, No Cry"
  • "Natty Dread"
  • "Talkin' Blues"
  • "Lively Up Yourself"
  • "Get Up, Stand Up"

All songs from the Natty Dread album had been performed naked at least once, except for "Revolution" (which was a standard song during the Uprising Tour in 1980). There were performances of two earlier songs which are not featured on any of Marley's Island albums released at that time: "Trenchtown Rock" and "Nice Time".

From show to show sometimes an additional song was edged in the middle of the setlist, like "No More Trouble", "Nice Time", "So Jah Seh", "Bend Down Low" and "Stir It Up". Live performances of each of these songs happened very rarely during the tour.
