UK Tour : April 2007
Bob Dylan returns to these shores in April next year for his first shows since the release of his album Modern Times earlier this year, and is coming to the Metro Radio Arena on Thurs 12th April.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (8th December)
‘Modern Times’, which came out at the end of August and is Bob’s first new album in
five years, has proved to be his best selling record in over 20 years. Public awareness
of Dylan is at an all-time high. The first volume of his memoirs, ‘Chronicles’, was
one of the most acclaimed and best-selling non-fiction works of 2004, and last year's
‘No Direction Home’ film, directed by Martin Scorsese, captivated audiences
worldwide as it documented Dylan's early career and rise to fame. The film won a
Peabody Award in 2006. As previously announced, Bob Dylan's XM Satellite Radio
shows in the US, ‘Theme Time Radio Hour’, will be aired for the first time in the UK
this month. Six of the shows will be broadcast on Radio 2 on consecutive evenings
from Saturday December 23, before continuing on 6 Music on New Year's Eve and
then on Friday nights from January 12.
