Bob Dylan Returns to New Zealand Arenas This August

Music Legend Bob Dylan Returns to New Zealand Arenas This August


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 7am NZST, Monday 14th May 2018

BOB DYLAN REVEALS ANTICIPATED NEW ZEALAND ARENA DATES THIS AUGUST

- MUSIC LEGEND RETURNS WITH SONGBOOK SPANNING SIX DECADES -

“Dylan and his crack five-piece band delve into his great songbook and the rich history of American music to deliver a focused and powerful set” – NZ Herald

"Finally, Dylan and the band closed, leaving in their wake an awestruck audience, a standing ovation and the incomparable feeling of having witnessed a musical great” – Waikato Times

“…absolutely stunning with Dylan singing more heartfelt and tenderly than I have ever witnessed before” – 13th Floor

Chugg Entertainment is proud to announce that the legendary Bob Dylan will return to New Zealand this August for two arena shows. The cross-generational icon will take in Auckland’s Spark Arena on Sunday 26th August and Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Tuesday 28th August.

In a career spanning six decades, Bob Dylan’s impact on popular music and culture is immeasurable. He is responsible for some of the most influential albums of all time, including The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde, and his socially and politically charged singles, ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ and ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’’, are widely considered among the most important songs in modern music. The ‘voice of a generation’ boasts an unparalleled repertoire, including timeless classics, ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, ‘Tangled Up In Blue’, ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ and ‘Girl From The North Country’.

With a catalogue of more than 50 albums, Dylan has sold more than 100 million records globally, received 11 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award for ‘Things Have Changed’ (Best Original Song), and has been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2012, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama, and in 2016, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Last in New Zealand for three arena shows in 2014, Bob Dylan and his band are a commanding force on stage. To experience Bob Dylan live in concert is an opportunity to share an encounter with one of the last remaining musical legends of the modern era.

Don’t miss out on what promises be a performance for the ages.

TICKETS ON SALE WEDNESDAY 23rd MAY AT 9AM

Scoop Review Of Books: Who Killed Jane?

This is an important book. Why? Because any publication that soberly and sensibly attempts to cast light on an unsolved murder is important, for the very real reasons that not only do the bereaved require and deserve a sense of closure, but that the murderer or murderers may be closer to being confirmed, arrested, tried.
