Win tickets to see Bob Dylan at the 1stBank CenterBy John Hendrickson | October 24th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
So what if Bob Dylan in 2012 sounds like a cross between Louis Armstrong, Kurt Cobain and a lawnmower that refuses to start?
Dylan’s aura remains the same 50 years after the release of his self-titled debut, in which a tight-lipped tramp showed his first hints of a future icon, telling us all about “Pretty Peggy-O” and “Talkin’ New York” in a way that forced us to listen.
In 2012, you don’t shell out the dough to see Dylan play butchered versions of “Like A Rolling Stone” or “Tombstone Blues,” you pay the price to see the best songwriter of the 20th century a few hundred feet away from you tell stories that no one else can tell.
Dylan and His Band will play two shows at the 1stBank Center with Mark Knopfler Oct. 29-30. Tickets, $45-$129.50, are available through TicketHorse. Or you can win a free pair to Tuesday’s show below.
