Bob Dylan Announces Return

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 2013



Thelong 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 September.

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.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
