Really, the only thing that needs to be said when Bob Dylan is performing is, “HEY — Bob Dylan is performing.” Because there can’t be anybody left who needs telling who Bob Dylan is, and those likely to attend his show likely already know that his voice isn’t the same as it was when he recorded albums such as The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, The Times They Are a-Changin’, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde — albums that genuinely, sans hyperbole, changed the shape of modern music. He sounds different, but different isn’t necessarily bad. If you haven’t seen a Bob Dylan show yet, take this chance to tick it off your bucket list. Because it’s fucking Bob Dylan.
Bob Dylan plays at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 11 at the Bren Events Center.
