Top Bob Dylan News & Posts

  • Bob Dylan ‘Likely’ To Retire From The Road After Rough & Rowdy Ways World Wide Tour Wraps In 2024 (JamBase)
    • “‘Tis the season for farewell tours and could Bob Dylan be among the artists done with the road? The New York Post’s sources told the paper Bob’s current tour is “likely Dylan’s final tour.”
  • A farewell to Banner’s, the restaurant I have loved for 30 years (Evening Standard)
    • Restaurant where ‘World Gone Wrong’ cover was photographed during ‘Blood In My Eyes’ video shoot
    • “Banner’s is closing and, as I walked out of the door after Juliette, the owner, had called me in to give me the news, I found my thoughts turning to cherished institutions whose imminent disappearance would have caused me less distress.”
  • Tonight As I Stand Inside the Rain (Flagging Down The Double E’s)
    • “Today’s show, on July 17 1994, ended after only nine songs. The reason: Extremely heavy rains in Krakow, Poland flooded the stage, making it dangerous for the musicians and eventually shorting out the power. Because of those rains, Dylan almost bailed on the show entirely. His friend-turned-road-manager Victor Maymudes talked him out of it.”
  • LIVE: Philosophy of Modern Song @92nd St. Y (The FM Club)
    • “André De Shields did the first parts – in 2019 he won the Tony and the Grammy for his role in Hadestown – sharply dressed and expressively reading with the skill one would expect of a performer of his stature. The songs and passages chosen (all the readings felt like excerpts and not the full text from the book) highlighted the most insightful and interesting of Dylan’s observations.”
  • Barack Obama Shares 2023 Summer Playlist (Ft. Everything is Broken)
