Bob Dylan Returns To New Zealand For Two Shows

Sunday 25th May, 2014 9:00AM

To coincide with his 73rd birthday, iconic musician and poet Bob Dylan has announced he will be returning to New Zealand for two shows later this year. The American folk legend, whose musical career spans over five decades and places more than 35 studio albums under his belt, marks his birthday today (US time) and has unveiled plans for a month-long tour across Australia and New Zealand. The 11-date sojourn commences in Hamilton in early August, before Dylan crosses the ditch to play a host of shows in Australia, and then circles back to wrap-up the tour in Christchurch. Here's the details of his New Zealand shows...

PRESS RELEASE:

BOB DYLAN ANNOUNCES RETURN TO AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

"A stunning return to form." The Independent, Nov 2013

"...a persuasive example of how good Dylan’s current creative roll is." Uncut, Nov 2013

"...be wowed by a tight band, and mesmerised by a man who spoke so much of the 60s, yet is still, astonishingly, speaking anew." The Observer, Nov

The long celebrated legacy of Bob Dylan, will be once again lauded this winter with his welcomed return to Australasia. Upon the celebration of this legend’s 73rd birthday, Chugg Entertainment can now confirm that Bob Dylan and his band will be coming back to Australia and New Zealand for a month-long tour. For the first time in over two decades, Bob Dylan draws the fans closer with performances in some of the most iconic theatre venues in the country. Fans can anticipate a musical event of depth, grace and significance, delivered by one of the greats.

The tour will take in shows at the Claudelands Arena in Hamilton, NZ on Saturday 9th August, Perth’s Riverside Theatre on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th August, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th August, the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Monday 25th August, Canberra’s Royal Theatre on Friday 29th August, Adelaide Entertainment Centre (intimate mode) on Sunday 31st August, and Sydney’s State Theatre on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th September and CBS Canterbury Arena in Christchurch, NZ on Wednesday 10th

How does one begin to describe the seismic force of an artist of this calibre? To note that this is a man with more than 50 album releases and a career spanning six decades, barely scratches the surface of the monumental impact his presence has made on popular culture. Perhaps his most impactful achievement though, is his timeless ability to remain relevant; deftly crossing multiple generations.

"Last year he flashed his genius once again on new album "Tempest," and now the tour...finds him in better fighting shape than we've seen him in years." Pittsburg Post-Gazette, Apr 2013

An opportunity to see Bob Dylan live in concert is an opportunity to share an encounter with one of the few pan-generational icons.
