Bob Dylan Triumphant Return: After ten years away, Bob Dylan, one of the most excellent musicians ever, will return to Evansville. The famed performer will perform at the Old National Events Plaza on December 3. Music enthusiasts worldwide were pleased when the managers announced this on Monday morning.
This musical show opens on October 6, letting audiences lose themselves in Dylan’s songs. His words and chords create affordable music starting at $63. The only way to view this cinematic marvel is to get tickets on AXS.com.
Evansville is excited about Dylan’s comeback because his poetry wowed them in 2008 and 2011 when Mesker Amphitheatre and Roberts Stadium shuttered. A city with numerous musical ups and downs awaits the Old National Events Plaza for this significant comeback.
This significant event will be part of Dylan’s 2020 album tribute Rough and Rowdy Ways tour. His 39th studio album, which includes “Murder Most Foul,” was warmly praised. The 17-minute song recounts President John F. Kennedy’s murder before reflecting on memory and the mid-20th century.
Bob Dylan’s music career has been a story with twists and turns demonstrating his mystique. Dylan was a critical early 1960s folk figure. Born in central Minnesota, he found calm amid New York’s hectic streets. But songs like “Bringing It All Back Home” and “Highway 61 Revisited” reveal that his music hunger carried him into rock ‘n’ roll’s unknown waters.
In the mid-1970s, the master was at his best as an artist. In the late 1980s, he began the Never Ending Tour and returned in the early 2000s. The documentary “I’m Not There,” based on Dylan’s life, cast actors of varied colours, ages, and genders. This was because Dylan was complex.
Dylan sang again at a surprise Farm Aid party in Indianapolis with the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty’s band. It was a lyrical meeting referencing Dylan’s 1985 Live Aid statement inspired by Farm Aid. “Wouldn’t it be great if we did something for our own farmers right here in America?” he remarked, yet relevant.
