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.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
