Bob Dylan to throw concert in Seoul

SEOUL -- American pop icon and Nobel laureate for literature Bob Dylan will throw a concert in Seoul next month, the organizer said Tuesday.

The 77-year-old singer-songwriter's concert, the first in South Korea in eight years, is set for July 27 at the Gymnastics Area of Olympic Park in southern Seoul, Papas E&M said.

Following the Seoul concert, he will fly to Japan to perform for the annual Fuji Rock Festival on July 29. He will later go on an arena tour of Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, the organizer said.

Bob Dylan gave his last concert in South Korea in March 2010.

The folk music legend, whose poetic, luminous lyrics won him the 2016 Nobel prize for literature, is also highly acclaimed in South Korea.

"We hope the audience will find the true character of Bob Dylan through his performance as the great artist is visiting South Korea for the first time in eight years, following his winning of the Nobel prize for literature as the first musician (to do so)," the organizer said.

I don't think there are big news / changes compared to the last concerts in Europe. Even if I'm hopeful!

Matt77 put together a real nice presentation of the compiled
list of “The SET” over in another thread in this forum.
He’s broken it up into 3 categories (Versions A-B-C), which seems about right.

It’s been placed in the handy ‘Set List Variation’ thread as well.
Just wanted to drop it here too, for quick reference on Opening Night.

Looking forward to seeing and hearing what the boys cook up for this leg.
Part of me wants to refrain from checking the setlist as I'll be seeing him in about 3 weeks time, but we all know how difficult the temptation is.

Bets on the setlist?
For me, compared to the last concert held in Verona, there will be a maximum of three different songs, and probably will be those of Sinatra!

None have spoken up in the "Who's Going Where" thread for this show. Surely someone's gotta be there!

If I'm figuring things right there will be a setlist up when I wake tomorrow (presuming I do, of course : )

It seems like it's been a long break, I'm excited to have another tour on the way.

Interview with Terry Blackwood and Jim Murray


We've heard a lot of stories about the Gospel allnight singings in his suite

Jim: (laughs) They were literally all night!

Terry: We'd get through the second show at about 2.30, and then maybe once a week he would invite us up to the penthouse, and we would be up all night. Because we would stay up and sing until the sun came up.

And that was all Gospel music?

(both nod in agreement).

What kind of songs did he like?

Terry: He liked black spirituals, especially The Golden Gate Quartet, Jimmy Jones. He loved that old (sings in deep voice) 'Farther along'. (to Jim) Remember that one?

Jim: (sings) 'Farther along' (laughs).

Terry: He played that over and over again. And a lot of the older Quartet music of The Statesmen, The Blackwoods - he loved all that old stuff.

You recorded an album of contemporary Gospel songs ('He Touched Me') with him in Nashville in 1971, and I believe that several of those songs had already been recorded by The Imperials

Jim: We always were ahead of our time. We as a group, The Imperials, we had a lot of people that didn't particularly like everything we did.

Terry: Other singers! (laughs)

Jim: Other singers, yeah. But Elvis actually heard our project, and he turned around and recorded all of the songs that we had already recorded, because he liked them. So really he kind of jumped in on that, and made those songs his own.

Those links look great but I'm passing the time with some great video from Tokyo 2014.

I will check them out, though - I know they'll be worthwhile.
