Bob Dylan Plots Fall 2017 U.S. Tour

Rolling Stone - September 11, 2017

Bob Dylan announced a 21-date fall U.S. tour launching October 13th in Valley Center, California and concluding November 16th in Boston. Mavis Staples will open the final 19 shows, beginning with a pair of back-to-back concerts in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 17th and 18th.

Tickets for the two opening dates, Valley Center and Las Vegas, are currently available. All remaining concerts go on sale Friday, September 15th.

In July, Dylan concluded the latest summer jaunt of his "Never Ending Tour." Four months prior, the singer-songwriter issued his 38th album, Triplicate, a triple-disc covers album of classic American songs, which Rolling Stone recently ranked one of 2017's 50 Best Albums So Far.

Trouble No More, a new hour-long Dylan documentary, is set to premiere during the New York Film Festival, which begins on September 30th. The film includes unearthed footage from the singer's 1979/1980 tour during his "born again" era, performing in Buffalo and Toronto in support of his Slow Train Coming LP.

Dylan received a Nobel Prize in Literature last October, though he declined to attend the December ceremony. Instead, he delivered a lecture in Los Angeles on June 4th, with critics accusing the musician of plagiarizing portions of his speech from an online SparkNotes entry on Herman Melville's Moby Dick.

Good one to be at.

Apparently not much excitement about this tour opener, maybe because it's in an isolated part of San Diego County and most tickets cost twice as much as tix with similar locations in Vegas the following night. On the TicketBastard site there are still over 150 tickets available just six days before the show. And it's a 2200 seat venue! Several San Diego fans I've spoken to have never missed a local Dylan show but won't be going because they were so disappointed by the repetitious sets and inclusion of the Sinatra material during his two day run at Humphrey's in San Diego a year ago. Me, I'm looking forward to it, as always. Wondering if he will include any references to dear Tom Petty (RIP) or last week's Vegas massacre through actual comments (unlikely I think) or appropriate song selections.

Let's cross fingers that at least a taper will be in the house. The first night of a tour has some potential for variations in the setlist...

So what's the general feeling about this tour? Are we going to hear the business as usual, Sinatra heavy set, or maybe something different?

Probably same old same old, although I’m hopeful for a change! Anyone attending this one with Lone Wolf?

Personally, I think the first is more likely than the second. Has Dylan ever commented on the Gun issue and what would be a appropriate song selection for the topic?

Bizarre, no? Here's an article about the local Indian tribe that owns the casino and their marketing plan that changed the name of the town from the perfectly fine "Valley Center" to "Funner" and its current "mayor" David Hasselhof, the dude from Baywatch:

The Curious Case Of Funner, California

Yes, it’s called “Funner,” a new city in North San Diego County that was officially renamed last week (May 7, 2017) by the Rincon Band of Luiseno Mission Indians. And if that isn’t quirky enough, David Hasselhoff of Bay Watch and Knight Rider fame was inaugurated as the city’s first Mayor.

The story of the founding of Funner, California goes back to 2012. At the time Harrah’s Rincon Casino and Resort, was looking to distinguish itself from more than two dozen Indian casinos in Southern California that were competing for the same group of aging consumers.

Follow That Dream 1961


Elvis gave Tom his refrain, Tom paused it in his glow
and gave it back as ours. we got lucky

Elvis Presley - I Got Lucky (From Kid Galahad)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMTuaaKG_BU


TOM PETTY: My dad died last year, and during one of our last conversations we were talking about Elvis, and I told him I remembered really quite clearly that day in 1961 I met him. I was eleven, just about to be twelve. My uncle was the only guy that processed film in Gainesville, so when film productions would come through, they would usually call him, and he would sign on to do whatever job he got. He worked on some things like The Creature from the Black Lagoon that we felt were pretty groovy. Then an Elvis film, Follow That Dream, came through. I was just sitting under a pine tree, doing nothing, when my aunt pulled in and said, “Would you like to go see Elvis Presley? They’re filming in Ocala.’’ I just had a vague memory of Elvis from when I was around five or six and there was a big commotion in the house about Elvis and his “wiggle.’’ But I had never seen anyone famous, and I didn’t have anything else to do, so I got in the car with my two cousins, and we rode down to Ocala, which was like thirty miles away. We went back behind a chain-link fence, where they had some trailers lined up for the actors. I remember a long line of white Cadillacs that came in, and getting out were guys in mohair suits—really very flashy lookin’ cats in sunglasses. Every time one would get out, I’d say to my aunt, “Is that Elvis?’’ and she’d say, “No.’’ Then all of the sudden, she went, “That’s Elvis.’’ And it really was a semireligious experience. I mean, he glowed to me. I’d never seen anyone’s hair dyed so black that it was blue—it shone blue in the front. He looked amazing. My uncle was there, and he says, “Elvis, these are my nieces and nephews.’’ He said hi, and then he went in his trailer. And we stayed and watched them film throughout the day. I remember at one point a crowd was handing records over the fence for him to sign and then hand them back. And I was like, “Damn, if I had an Elvis record, I could get an autograph.’’ So when we went home, I was a changed person. I set about finding Elvis records, so I could get Elvis’s autograph in case I went back. That was how I fell in love with rock ’n’ roll records—and that was my only interest ever since.
