It's probably unlikely, but I wonder if Bob and Neil will appear onstage together?

About the show in London, is the "more acts to be announced" promise still up or was that part dropped when the show changed promoters?

And about the Brexit part, as things stand today, do I need to get a passport or my national EU ID (which I've always used to travel to the UK) will be fine?


The authorities may well say your existing EU ID will be OK. But as Brexit involves so much politicing and posturing with agreements and preparations for whether there will or will not be a deal only half made at this point, with just 70 odd days to go, then don't take any chances. Get your passport.

My apologies, I haven't been following the changes with the Hyde Park show. So it's no longer BST? It's just a separate show with only Bob and Neil playing?

That's about the sum of it, the reason being 'if my memory serves me well' was that Neil Young objected to Barclaycard being the sponsor. So the concert was pulled from the BST official site and is now a 'stand alone' event. Concerts for the next two days featuring Robbie Williams and Florence + the Machine are still under the BST banner. Ticketmaster, one of the agents says that tickets are not available for the Dylan / Young show so I guess it's sold out!

Stargreen also states that the show is sold out but AXS still have tix on sale for the VIP garden (£274 per ticket)

Not sure if this has been discussed ?
Isle of Wight Festival 2019, rumours that Bob may play this with it being 50 years etc.
I'm not convinced it will happen, a little too close to Hyde Park Festival

Any thoughts ?

Well, there’s this article...
which also has the Tour beginning “next week,”
so not much credibility there.

Fifty years on from his groundbreaking Isle of Wight Festival performance could 2019 see a return from Bob Dylan?

By Lauren Roberts -11th January 2019

The Blowin’ In The Wind singer starts a mammoth tour next week but his calendar is empty on the weekend of the 13-16 June.

Others in the mix include Angels singer Robbie Williams, American rock band Eagles, and the recently reformed Spice Girls.

Thanks for the explanation! I must say, I'm happier that it's no longer a festival as such.

To be honest, apart from the wording 'Barclaycard' and BST being deleted from any programmes and other merchandice I shouldn't think we'll notice much difference. It's still an open air concert in a vast space with the lucky few being able to afford entry into VIP and other areas. I'll be interested to know who the other acts are when they are finalised.

A letter sent to UK Music on behalf of Britain's prime minister Theresa May states and agreement that was been reached between the UK and the EU, guaranteeing that musicians will be able to travel and work in the EU as they do now, at least until Dec. 2020.

Hopefully that applies on the crews too.

I'm just hoping that Brexit is delayed, especially if we're leaving without a deal. My Eurostar is booked for Paris!

I am not sure if the concert in Innsbruck, Austria on the 19th of April gonna happen or they cancel it.

Just take a look how many free seats are still available.

I hope that I am wrong.

Lots of tickets to sell in Spain either.
Just look at the number of seats avaliable in Fuengirola. The tickets are way too expensive.

I agree. High prices.
It is not easy to fill large locations, especially in Spain. However, this year there are also some difficulties in other cities, due also to the fact of many dates concentrated in the same geographical area.
A pity, given that many nations have been left out (Italy, BeNeLux, Denmark, Hungary, Poland).

high prices is one thing (but on the other hand: ticket sales for Innsbruck seem to be poor, tickets prices are relatively low (compared to most other shows)) . Another thing is local promotion. And local habits, of course – some people (like most of us) buy tickets right after they go on sale. Other people (belonging to other cultures) make up their minds only a few weeks or even days before a show…

Hi,

Riff Music (spanish promoter) will have a serious problem: the places (mainly sport halls & bull rings) are too big and an audio mess..... nowadays too much seats-mess halls & high prices are not the best way for "a good bussiness" with Dylan, at least in Spain.

Saludos,

Ramón

What do you think about the acoustics of the Seville and Fuengirola venues?
And which ones in Spain do you consider have the worse acoustics (and the best)?
I'm asking because I'm going to some Spanish dates but I didn't know about that.

Düsseldorf is seeming more & more likely as the opener.

I believe too. Some dates can be added after July 14th, maybe a return to the Old Continent. A European Leg with only 12 concerts, it seems very unlikely.

I still don't believe that Düsseldorf will be the first show of the tour. What about a few show in the Netherlands?

the summer tour might be rather short – basically it's 3-4 gig festivals (Hyde Park, Kilkenny, Roskilde(?) and Bergen plus a few more shows in between. (I guess he makes so much more money playing those festivals that it makes sense to come over to Europe for just a few shows)
