Bob Dylan Perform ‘Lenny Bruce’ for First Time in 11 Years


Bob Dylan Announces Ten-Night New York City Residency- Beacon Theater run will be his longest stand at a New York City venue since his days playing Greenwich Village folk clubs in the early Sixties

The shows begin November 23rd and wrap December 6th, presuming they don’t add even more.

Bob Dylan played his first North American show of 2019 Friday night in Irvine, California, where he introduced two new members of his touring band.

Drummer George Recile, who had played with Dylan continuously since 2002, was gone and in his place was Matt Chamberlain, a journeyman drummer best known for his brief stint in Pearl Jam in 1991. He has also played with Soundgarden, Tori Amos, the Wallflowers, Liz Phair and many others.

Dylan spent part of the year touring Europe but just announced 28 shows across the U.S. after Roskilde Festival 2019

The setlist of the opening night show also had some notable additions, including the first performance of the Shot of Love tune “Lenny Bruce” since 2008 and the Together Through Life cut “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’” in the opening slot where he traditionally plays “Things Have Changed.” Dylan also played guitar on “Beyond Here Lies Nothin,’” which he’s done only a handful of times in the past few years.

A ten-night run at the Beacon Theater in New York City. Tickets go on-sale September 27th for what will be his longest stand at a New York venue since 1962 when he’d camp out at folk clubs like Gerde’s Folk City for weeks at a time.

Dylan will launch the shows on Oct. 11 at the UC Irvine Bren Events Center in Irvine, Calif., and wrap it all up at the Met in Philadelphia on Nov. 21. Tickets for the dates up to and including Nov. 2 in Muncie, Ind., go on sale Sept. 13; the remaining concerts will become available on Sept. 20. (Ultimateclassicrock)

Dylan closed out his European dates in July with a pair of co-headlining shows with his old friend Neil Young. The last of those evenings, at Nowlan Park in Kilkenny, Ireland, featured the two performing a duet on the Carter Family hymn “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” the first time they’d shared a stage since a 1994 date at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. The two previously performed the song in San Francisco in 1975.
