It’s telling that when it comes to Bob Dylan—arguably the greatest singer-songwriter of all time—one needs to practically apologize for wanting to see him play live. Dylan, ever the confounding contrarian, does not put on casual fan-friendly shows, often reworking beloved classics to the point of absurdity and croaking his way through sets of obscure material. He has long shirked the “voice of a generation” tag and simply considers himself as a song-and-dance man. His so-called “Never Ending Tour” has been ongoing for 30-plus years. He’s 78. He sometimes has that weird little pencil mustache thing going on. He probably won’t play your favorite song, and even if he does, you probably won’t recognize it. Why would you want to see that live?
Eh, whatever. The last time we saw Dylan live (back in 2015) he was pretty great! And hopefully he’ll be pretty great again when he plays The Rave’s Eagles Ballroom on Saturday, October 26. Reserved seating and general admission tickets go on sale Friday, September 13 at 10 a.m. (GA floor tickets are $55; reserved floor tickets are $129.50). CUE THE TRAVELING WILBURYS. (R.I.P. everyone but Dylan and Jeff Lynne.)
