We come together to celebrate the musical legacy of the icon that is Mr Bob Dylan. Since the 1960s, we have been spoilt by the prodigious output of this legend and the quality of his song-writing has garnered multiple awards, culminating in the ultimate recognition of the Nobel prize in Literature in 2016, "For having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

 

No matter what decade you choose, there is a favourite album or a bunch of songs that means something of significance to many followers and what the Bob Dylan Band aim to achieve is a sense of these songs throughout his long history. Drawing from solo acoustic renditions of songs such as "Blowing in the Wind", "The Times They Are a Changing" and "A Hard Rain a-Gonna' Fall" and arrangements of full band songs, such as "Tangled Up in Blue" and "Like a Rolling Stone"; the Bob Dylan Band also include versions of songs performed with the Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton and Bruce Springsteen.

 

The "Last Waltz" marked a chapter in Dylan's distinguished career and two songs from the Band, ("The Nights They Drove Old Dixie Down" and "The Weight") are included in the set list. The show is completed with songs from the more recent albums such as Oh Mercy, Modern Times, and Together through Life, along with a selection of Dylan's great work with The Travelling Wilburys.
