Two days before the Smile Jamaica concert, gunmen appeared at Marley’s home and shot him, Rita Marley, and his manager Don Taylor. No one was killed. Marley performed, but not before showing his wounds to the crowd.

The failed assassination would serve as the inspiration for his song "Ambush in the Night"
