Bob Dylan AND Bob Weir. Wow and I was there !
After a wildly successful tour of Europe last year playing to standing-room-only crowds, Bob Dylan and his Band will stop at The Star Pavilion on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. Special guest is Bob Weir.
Dylan's Hershey show is currently the only scheduled performance with Bob Weir.Dylan’s new solo album, Tempest, will be released on Tuesday, Sept. 11. Featuring 10 new and original songs, the release of Tempest coincides with the 50th anniversary of Dylan’s debut album, which was released in 1962. This year, Dylan was the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor. He was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for his “profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.” He also was the recipient of the French Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 1990, Sweden’s Popular Music Award in 2000 and several Doctorates including University of St. Andrews and Princeton University, as well as other numerous honors.
Weir is a founding member of the Grateful Dead, RatDog and Furthur; he will perform solo acoustic at The Star Pavilion. In addition to his solo career, Weir also performed as part of Kingfish, The Other Ones, The Dead, and Bobby and the Midnites.
