One Night!

Thursday
11 May 2017

Dublin, Ireland



3Arena
Capacity: 14,500
Showtime: 8:00 PM

This is the 28th show of the 2017 Never Ending Tour



---

Bob Dublin

Five decades in the public eye, and Bob Dylan has never faltered. He has tirelessly created new music, breaking down the divide between literature and songwriting, and recently making history as the first person to win the Nobel Prize for Literature for his work in music.

With a keen sense of poeticism and a plasticine way with language, Bob’s nod to literature’s highest church acknowledged a new kind of respect for wordsmiths working outside of traditional media.

Bob has continued to tour the world, all the while releasing new material. His dedication is tireless, and he determinedly performs his new tracks at live performances, so they are thrilling for his loyal army, who know the music and lyrics so well that you’d think they had written the material themselves.

If you identify as a Bob Dylan fan, you need to see him live…after five decades in the limelight, he remains a compelling force. Don’t miss seeing this gravelly tambourine man before it’s too late.

Tickets
€65.50-€121

The train from Cork to Dublin leaves in the morning. Looking forward to another Irish gig.
I am expecting to see the same 21 songs I saw him sing at the second Palladium show.

This will be Dylan's 31st concert on this Emerald Isle.
Only the first 13 of those (from 1966 to 1998) I did not see.
The other 17 Irish shows (since Vicar Street 2000) I have attended.

My row H seat in the flat section in front of the stage will be on the piano side.
This final show of this European tour will be my 81st Bob Dylan concert since '81.

Looking forward to this, first gig since Cork and Dublin in 14.

Obviously Dublin has a few and I'm acquainted with many of them, but any good
Watering holes close by before the gig playing music/serving food?

Have a good one everybody!

Kid Galahad (1962) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kid_Galahad
"One day, Walter, in need of work, accepts an offer of five dollars to be a sparring partner and decks one of Willy's top fighters. Willy is persuaded to let this "Galahad" take a shot in a legitimate ring. Both men are reluctant, but each has a need for the money. Walter begins working out under the watchful eye of Willy's top trainer, Lew. After several successes in the ring, Walter is readied for his biggest fight. Gangsters want him to take a dive so that Willy can pay off his debts to them, but "Galahad" throws his muscle behind Willy and emerges victorious. He wins the big fight against Ramon "Sugar Boy" Romero as well as Willy's approval, retiring undefeated to his vintage car and his new love."


"Elvis Presley’s Irish roots proven by legal document" http://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/ ... -1.2621274

Singer’s ancestor fled Ireland for the US in the 18th-century after assault, paper shows


An 18th-century court document, proving Elvis Presley’s Irish ties, shows that his ancestor fled Leinster’s mean streets “in great dread” for a quieter life in America.

The document, from 1775, which will be auctioned in a Dublin saleroom on May 14th, concerns legal proceedings brought by William Presley, the singer’s great-great-great-great-grandfather.
Originally from the townland of Stranakelly near Shillelagh, Co Wicklow, Presley, a farmer, claimed he had been savagely assaulted by a group of men in Hacketstown, in neighbouring Co Carlow.
In Carlow Court of Assizes on August 25th, 1775, he claimed that he had been “violently insulted, assaulted, beat and abused” by a group of Wicklow men.
He said the men had used their “whips and fists, dragged him down by the legs”, and when down, gave him “several kicks in his body and face”, all “without any provocation”.
The men were “swearing they would have his life”, he told the magistrate. Presley said he was now in “great dread and fear of his life”.
Presley named the perpetrators: “Andrew Morris of Mullannashea; ffrancis Morris of Whiterock; Samuel Morris of Cross; Thomas Morris, William Wilson, Thomas Matthers and Several Other Persons whose names Deponent knoweth not.”
The magistrate agreed to list the case for a further hearing.
It is not known what happened next in the court, but Presley emigrated to the US later that year - with his son Andrew - and first settled in New Orleans.
The document is in Whyte’s Auctioneers Eclectic Collector sale on May 14th and has an estimate of €500-700.
Three years ago, genealogists discovered Elvis Presley’s link to William Presley.
Auctioneer Ian Whyte said: “Elvis’s great-great-great-great-grandfather left Ireland after being attacked . . . this document proves the link and explains why Elvis was born in America.”
According to the catalogue notes, William Presley later moved to Tennessee, where he died in 1802.
His granddaughter Rosella “never married but had several children and one of these was a son called Jesse Presley”.
In 1913, Jesse married Minnie Mae and they gave birth to one Vernon Elvis Presley in 1916.
“Vernon married Gladys Love Smith in 1933 and their son Elvis Aaron Presley was brought into the world in January 1935.”

and now, exactly 50 years since the original release, the song has its first Official Music Video.

I've never been to Dublin and would really like to visit. Perhaps when he comes across again I'll make more of an effort. Anyhow, for all of you who are going - enjoy the show!

Yea, surprises are always welcome.
Maybe he'll play piano on LAWY :lol:.
Or he takes his hat off during TUIB :lol: :lol:.

Nevertheless, have fun and enjoy the show. It is very likely that SWM will be encore No. 2 today.
