Following his massive NZ tour in 2014, cross-generational crooner Bob Dylan is back to the Kiwi spotlight this August. He'll be playing his classic hits in Auckland and Christchurch after winding up his Aussie shows happening in Perth and Adelaide.
In a career spanning six decades, Bob Dylan's impact on popular music and culture is immeasurable. He's responsible for some of the most influential albums of all time including 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan', 'Highway 61 Revisited' and 'Blonde on Blonde'. Apart from his acclaimed albums, Dylan's socially and politically-charged tracks 'Blowin' In The Wind' and 'The Times They Are A-Changin' are also considered among the most important songs in modern music. Dubbed as "voice of a generation", Dylan 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'.
