Buzz 14:01PM EDT

Bob Marley and The Wailers played a concert at Lyceum Theater on this date 40 years ago, which included the iconic version of the song "No Woman No Cry" that more fans are now familiar with, thanks to its inclusion on 'Legend.'

It's not the only song that has gathered even more fame as a live cut. Here are seven other iconic numbers that still receive more play in their live forms, from Bruce Springsteen, U2, Eric Clapton and more.READ MORE
