it’s a bob, bob world
It’s been one hit after another with the Bob Dylan news lately. First he announced a handful of upper Midwestern tour dates this summer, including a stop down the road in Rochester in August. Then, two days ago news hits that he is releasing his 35th studio album Tempest on September 11. So naturally, I’m over the moon. But then I get word today that he’s doing a full U.S. tour this fall with Mark Knopfler! 1,2, 3, done. Greatest Bob news triumvirate in recent memory for this girl.
I couldn’t have been more jealous when Europe was being treated to the Bob & Mark show last year. Mark Knopfler has been on my Bucket List for awhile now, and having the chance to finally see him, with Bob, is almost too much. It’s like when Dylan was touring with Tom Petty in 1986 (when I was 2 years old) or with the Grateful Dead in ‘87 (when I was 3). So basically it’s the kind of double-billing that I’ve been hoping for since I could feed myself.
I can’t wait to hear the new album and to plot my tour plans! What shows are y’all going to see??
