Bob Dylan performing in Oshawa on July 4

Nobel laureate Bob Dylan will be performing in Oshawa on July 4 as part of an 18-city Canadian concert tour.

Tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for the concert by Dylan and His Band at the Oshawa Tribute Communities Centre (the former General Motors Centre).

Tickets are $65.25 or $85.25 and go on sale on March 24 at 10 a.m.

They can be bought online at http://www.tributecommunitiescentre.com, by calling 1-877-436-8811 or in person at the Tribute Communities Centre Ticket Office (99 Athol St. E.).

Other stops in Ontario on the tour include: June 27 at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston, July 2 at the Molson Centre in Barrie, July 5 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto and July 6 at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ont.

Considered one of the great poet-songwriters in American history, Dylan's music, with songs such as Blowin' in the Wind and The Times They Are A-Changin', helped define a generation and were embraced by the American civil rights and anti-war movements.

In 1964, Dylan added electric instruments to Another Side of Bob Dylan, followed by Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited in 1965, angering and alienating some folk peers, critics and audiences looking for more of his acoustic sound and lyrics of political and social importance.

That was when Dylan recruited The Band to back him up. The Band, formed originally by now Peterborough-area resident Ronnie Hawkins as his back-up band, included musicians Garth Hudson (keyboards), the late Rick Danko (bass), the late Richard Manuel (piano and vocals) and Robbie Robertson (guitar) with Arkansas native Levon Helm (drums and vocals).

Dylan went on to write a songbook that includes such hits as All Along the Watchtower, Lay Lady Lay, Girl From the North Country, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Forever Young and Hurricane.

Several of his albums topped the charts, including Blood on the Tracks and the Grammy-winning Modern Times.

Dylan's career has spanned nearly five decades, during which he has released 38 albums. He is expected to release his 39th album, Triplicate, on March 31, a three-CD recording of American classics.

He's won 12 Grammy Awards and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He also won an Oscar in 2001 for his song Things Have Changed, written for the film Wonder Boys.

Last October, Dylan was the first musician to receive the Nobel Prize for literature.

His current band includes Stu Kimball (rhythm guitar), Donnie Herron (pedal steel, lap steel, electric mandolin, banjo, violin), Charlie Sexton (lead guitar), Tony Garnier (bass) and George Receli (drums, percussion).

I'm reposting this from the SH forum - as there haven't been too many comments on these shows over here... Oshawa was a really great show - even better than Barrie. Barrie had an epic Things Have Changed to open the show - possibly the strongest opener I've seen from him. Also a really good Tangled Up in Blue that soared voacally and had one of the most exciting instrumental sections I've seen from Bob's band- sounded like 20's jazz meets Grateful Dead but better than that sounds on paper.

Oshawa started nearly as strong as Barrie but kept up an overall higher level of intensity. Desolation Row was crazy good- it was like watching 67' Basement Tapes era Bob - so playful - changing the melody on verses and choruses all throughout the song. I've seen Dylan probably around 60 times since 1988 and I've never seen that side come out of him. I've seen 70's era Bob materialize out of nowhere on Early Roman Kings circa 2013. 1964 Newport Fest Dylan on a performance of Highwater circa 2005... etc. but nothing quite like what he brought to that particular performance of Desolation Row. Stormy Weather was just perfect too- don't sleep on this tour!

I'll add that the feel of the shows has changed considerably since the last two shows I caught last summer. The sound/band is louder. Bob (in some instances) is singing the standards less reverently and treating them more like his own material. Bob looks spry and healthy - great to see the hat gone - wish he'd bring back the harmonica.
