Bob Dylan will play a SOLD OUT show at Dublin’s 3 Arena tonight . The music legend returns to Ireland following his triumphant gig in Cork’s Marquee in 2014. There will be no support act at the concert. Doors open at 6.30 pm this evening and the show starts at 8 pm.
It came as no surprise that the 75 year old songwriter’s concert, ‘Bob Dylan & His Band’ sold out. Aiken promotions have warned via their twitter page to allow extra time for travel to the venue as the traffic is expected to be busy.
Outspoken and ahead of his time, Dylan has been a major and profoundly influential figure in popular music and culture now for five decades.
The American singer song-writer released his 38th studio album entitled Triplicate on 31st March. It is his first triple album featuring thirty new recordings. Triplicate is the follow up to Dylan’s 2016 album Fallen Angels. It is in the form of “a thematically-arranged 10-song sequence”. The album features reinterpretations of iconic songs made famous by the likes of Tony Bennett, Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra.
As a musician, Dylan has sold more than 100 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He has also received numerous awards including eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award. Dylan has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
More recently the legend has won the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature. He was the first songwriter to receive this award. The Nobel Academy credited Dylan “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.
If you are among the lucky few to have gotten tickets for this evening’s concert, we hope you’ve a great night!
