Bob Dylan Plays The Classics In First U.S. Concert Of 2016

first_imgLast night, Bob Dylan made his U.S. tour debut with a sold out performance at the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Amphitheatre in Woodinville, WA. Dylan  has an extensive summer tour in the works, on the heels of his recently-released Fallen Angels album (read the review here). After spending most of April in Japan, Dylan made himself at home in the States, working in new music with some of his old classics for the performance.The show started with Dylan’s 2000 hit “Things Have Changed,” before launching into “She Belongs To Me” from his 1965 album, Bringing It All Back Home. The new albums pay tribute to songs from the American Songbook, and a track like “What’ll I Do” represents that era of classic music. Still, Dylan had time for his own originals, as evidenced by the “Tangled Up In Blue” and “Blowin’ In The Wind” entries on the setlist.At 75-years-old, it appears that Bob Dylan has still got it. Keep on rocking, Mr. Dylan. Edit this setlist | More Bob Dylan setlists[Photo by mattachak/Instagram]last_img read more
