If you would like to catch Bob Dylan in Sydney he is playing the State Theatre on Wednesday, September 3 and Thursday, September 4. General public tickets go on sale from June 3.
Usually you can predict what fans should expect in a show. Not so with Bob Dylan - in concert he can be amazing – you never get a lot of chat and banter, but if the music is sitting right, you know you are in the room with a musical genius. In some concerts, however, Dylan looks positively uncomfortable – as Bill Bryson would say, as if he would rather be having ‘bowel surgery in the woods with a stick’.
Still, there won’t be too many more tours one would imagine and audiences will undoubtedly be treated to a few new tracks from his current 36th studio album plus more hits than you could poke a harmonica at including Blowin’ in the Wind, The Times They Are a-Changin’, Positively 4th Street, Maggie’s Farm, All Along the Watchtower, Like a Rolling Stone, Just Like a Woman, Lay Lady Lay, Hurricane and Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.
If you are travelling from out of town and would like an overnight stay, Rydges World Square is a walk away and for those flying in, Rydges Sydney Airport can look after all your accommodation needs while you ponder those age old questions like, how many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? Or indeed, how many times must a drunk fall down before you call him a cab?
