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.

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
