Bob Dylan Announces A Concert Described As ‘His First Such Special Event In 30 Years’
Bob Dylan and his team recently announced on Twitter that the rockstar will get back on stage after a two-year break, however, Dylan has chosen to do an exclusive broadcast performance although other musicians have decided to get back to live performances.
The world-famous rockstar made it to the headlines of rock news numerous times in the past year, especially after selling his entire song catalog. Prior to the pandemic, Dylan was known for his long and frequent tours and his last in-person show was in December 2019, right before the outbreak.
Unable to tour, Bob Dylan decided to release a surprise album ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways‘ in June 2020 which was his first album of original songs since 2012’s ‘Tempest.’ As he hasn’t been able to get on stage since late 2019, this means that his upcoming show’s setlist will include, for the first time ever, some tracks from his 39th album.
Even though fans had been expecting a live on-stage performance from the rock icon, it seems like Dylan decided to place a safe bet. Recently on Twitter, he and his team announced that the online performance will start streaming on July 18 and fans will be able to rewatch the show until July 20.
Here is the official announcement regarding Dylan’s upcoming streaming event:
“Veeps presents Bob Dylan in an exclusive broadcast performance, Shadow Kingdom, which will showcase the artist in an intimate setting as he presents renditions of songs created especially for this event on Sunday, July 18″
The tickets are now on sale at the price of $25 and although it won’t be a live concert, at least it will be accessible by thousands of fans from all around the world.
