Late to the Party: Melbourne’s Best Gigs in August
You might think you've missed tickets for Melbourne's best gigs this month, but despair is for the weak – you can still get into these incredible Bob Dylan shows.


With a six-decade career under his belt, legendary American songwriter Bob Dylan is still performing and releasing albums. Although the singer rejects the phrase, his relentless touring schedule has been dubbed the Never Ending Tour by his fans and members of the press.

Dylan has released more than 50 albums including The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, Blonde on Blonde and Blood on the Tracks. And in 1988 he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

In recent years the singer has dedicated himself to the songs of others; he produced three well-regarded records of covers, and last year’s Triplicate was Dylan’s take on 30 classic American songs.

Well into his seventies, Dylan retains a touch of his “gone electric” rabble rousing. He was awarded the Noble Prize for Literature in 2016 – the first songwriter to be honoured in this way – and it took the singer months to acknowledge the prize. Dylan eventually apologised for his silence and received the award at a private ceremony in April 2017.

Bob Dylan plays Margaret Court Arena on August 13 and 14.

Hope you enjoy the show! I am going to both Melbourne shows too and if Bob is on anywhere near the same kind of form he was in Adelaide then it should be a fantastic show! I'm sitting completely side on to the stage for Monday Night so should be a very different experience seeing the show from a different angle than sitting central in Adelaide near the sound guys.

Getting very exciting! In the twelfth row for the first night - and will be GF’s first Dylan concert (she’ll be coming to the Enmore too). Third row for the second night :) Work tomorrow is going to feel interminable haha.

Wonder if Bob’s rolling in to town today ...

Going to the first show. Second ever Dylan concert, first being Melbourne 2014 at the Palais Theatre.

Convinced from recordings and current set list I'll enjoy this one even more.
Excited! :D

Going to both shows - can't wait. Would be nice if he played that! Lost count of the number of shows since the first at IOW in '69. Just as excited now as I was then. Hooked for life

Finally someone who also lost count!
Yes agree on all points! Lucky you. Back-to-backers in the same location.
Enjoy! Looking forward to hearing the comparative experience from each show.

I'm meeting some family who're also going tonight for pre-drinks in South Yarra (near work, pretty convenient for Margaret Court too). Would certainly be keen on some ER beers before tomorrow's show if anyone's down for that 8)

Just never really got around to going to any before, meant to go to the 2014 shows but it just didn't work out at the time.
Was determined to go this time though

Margaret Court Arena is a much better venue that Rod Laver Arena. Named after a champion Australian woman - Serve Somebody would be a fitting tribute to her in more ways than one!
