Bob Dylan to play Hong Kong in August on his latest world tour!
Dylan will perform at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre this summer, marking his first performance in the city since he was controversially awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016


The times they are a-changin’ … but one thing has not: the strength of Bob Dylan’s masterful lyricism. The American music legend is set to return to Hong Kong, marking his first performance in the city since he was controversially awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016.

The iconic singer-songwriter will take to the stage at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre with his live band on August 4, seven years after his last appearance in the city.

Penning songs about the hard truths of social justice, politics and personal anguish, Dylan has had a career that spans almost six decades. Along with becoming the first musician to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, he has also won 12 Grammy awards, and an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for his song Things Have Changed from the film Wonder Boys (2001).

His music has traversed folk, rock, blues and country, and he has sold more than 125 million albums. Among his greatest hits are The Times They Are A-Changin’, Just Like a Woman, All Along the Watchtower, I Shall Be Released and Mr Tambourine Man.

For his era-defining artistry, Dylan was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.

It must be hot in DC right now Schoolie.
Perhaps we will criss-cross later this Fall?

I am eyeing some of these Carolinas & we’ll see what else appears.
Adjusting & arranging my biz schedule to maybe align.

Need a Busload of Faith to get by.

Should be starting momentarily.
Maybe those with tweet & instagram will plug in and keep
us abreast of any developments.
My friend in Hong Kong is going, but she knows no Dylan.

Not expecting much for changes, since it looks like Bob is settled in already.

Taipei will come. Not sure about Seoul, but confident someone must've captured it.

I'll tell ya what, for all the hoopla about Masterpiece entering the Set, it's gotta be one of the most boring ones I've ever heard.
Really glad it's in there though and will give it a chance...ha ha...Guessing he just finished that and is into Honest by now...which maintains it's funny punch. I like it.

We can always hope a new arrangement for High Water (minimum 1 per year!)
Nothing is impossible for Gotta Serve Somebody now !
However Hard Rain to finish the show seems impossible I know but could be a great end ! :D
