V Brně zahraje Bob Dylan, pomohla tomu komornější hala pro tři tisíce lidí



Do Brna zamíří další hudební legenda. Promotérská agentura Glanc potvrdila, že se jim na 15. dubna 2018 podařilo dojednat zpěváka a držitele Nobelovy ceny za literaturu Boba Dylana. Vystoupí ve sportovní hale Vodova.

Dylanův koncert chtěli pořadatelé v Brně uspořádat už před devíti lety. Kvůli nedostatečné kapacitě, kterou mohly brněnské sály nabídnout, ale nakonec dal přednost Ostravě. Nyní je paradoxně omezená kapacita pro Brno výhodou.

„Letos nám nahrává, že by Bob Dylan rád zahrál v komornějších prostorách. Původně se uvažovalo o O2 areně, ale ta nevyhovovala jeho představám. Navíc před tím zahraje ve Vídni, odkud to bude mít do Brna blízko,“ vysvětlil Aleš Hrbek z agentury Glanc.

V Brně nejprve přicházela v úvahu hokejová DRFG Arena. Jelikož se však v tu dobu bude hrát play off, padl výběr na sportovní halu Vodova, která pojme asi tři tisíce diváků.

„Vznikne tam zajímavý prostor, kdy lidé budou mít Boba v takřka klubové vzdálenosti,“ vyzdvihl Hrbek. Domluvit jednu z největších hudebních osobností jemu a jeho spolupracovníkům trvalo čtyři měsíce.

Lístky se budou prodávat ve třech cenových kategoriích – za 1 690 korun, 1 990 a 300 prémiových lístků bude za 2 390 korun.

As web-translated:

Bob Dylan is playing in Brno, helped by a more comfortable hall for three thousand people



Another musical legend will go to Brno. Promotion agency Glanc confirmed that they were able to negotiate on April 15, 2018 the singer and holder of the Nobel Prize for Literature Bob Dylan. He will perform in the Vodov sports hall.

Dylan's concert was intended to be organized by organizers in Brno nine years ago. Due to the insufficient capacity that the Brno halls could offer, it ultimately preferred Ostrava. Now the paradoxically limited capacity for Brno is an advantage.

"This year, he tells us that Bob Dylan likes to play in more relaxed spaces. Originally, the O2 arena was considered, but it did not suit his expectations. In addition, he will play in Vienna from where he will be close to Brno, "Aleš Hrbek from Glanc explained.

The ice hockey DRFG Arena was in Brno first. However, since the play off will play at that time, the selection of the Vodov sports hall has taken place, which will accommodate about three thousand spectators.

"There will be an exciting space where people will have Bob at almost club distance," Hrbek said. One of the greatest musical personalities to him and his collaborators took four months.

Tickets will be sold in three price categories - for 1,690 crowns, 1,990 and 300 premium tickets for CZK 2,390.

Hey ye all, hope you enjoy it!

I have asked for journalist accreditation.
I got it as the writing staff of web magazine Rock+ even in 2014 and 2010, and now I have asked as an independent writer (who wrote an e-book on Dylan called "Sales Representative of Music" - in Czech).
The organizers put me on the list in December... and it was rejected before yesterday.
Bad luck.
But the reasoning by the organizers was more than idiotic: "It was rejected because Mr Dylen (yes, they wrote Dylen) doesn't want photographers."
You see, to me it seems these organizers don't know anything about Bob at all, and about his "love" for photographers.
Even in that December they asked me if I want to be listed as a writer, or a photographer. I was surprised by this question and I wrote them that Dylan never gives photo pass.
Didn't they know it? What sort of organizers is it, OMG?
And, my case: I think the organizers wrote that I wanna be a photographer on the concert, so it was rejected. :roll:

Maybe fans in Brno will make a good atmosphere, and who knows, may Bob will clap throughout Desolation Row again here :wink:

Beautiful weather here in Brno, 24 hours before showtime. :D
Looking forward to some sightseeing later tonight, and tomorrow all day before the concert.

I was actually planning on attending this show, but now I no longer feel that bad about things not having worked out the way I wanted. I guess I’m lucky that most dates just don’t fit my schedule exactly the year Bob pulls out tons of arrangements I don’t like. Maybe I should send him a thank you note :lol: :lol: :lol:

back in my hotel room since 9:40, and that includes a 5 km tram ride for 15 min or so

bullet points thoughts about the show to follow ...

* I was sitting 5th row center, the stage was low (if I would be standing with the back to it I could rest my elbows on the rim), but still I could see for most of the songs only part of Bob's nose, his eyes, and his cream colored hat [no hat for the fake "encores", for a minute after the show I thought the Czech audience would get him to come out for a real encore]

* on the other hand, from my 5th row center seat I enjoyed the best sound I have experienced at a Dylan show since I don't know when; Dylan's voice and piano was so loud and clear for me and his singing was great tonight, and the band, what can I say, those guys are awesome to watch in their supporting roles for the greatest living artist

Thanks for the setlist.
Hope, the show was as good as Salzburg.
I wonder, for how long B & B will stay in the encore slot!
Come on Bob - give yourself a kick and throw out BITW for a fresher encore song.
Please!!!

most likely BITW will stay forever – it's one of those songs people come to hear… (I guess it's the last thing for him to change – after Things Have Changed)
