This one somehow slid under our radar: Bob Dylan (above, perhaps about to accept his Pulitzer Prize
) is returning to Little Rock, this time at the Riverfest Amphitheater on August 26. According to his website
, tickets go on sale June 21, with a pre-sale starting June 16. No Willie Nelson on this one apparently -- there are no openers listed.
Dylan's latest, Modern Times
, is well worth a listen if you haven't heard it. His live shows can be hit or miss -- when I saw him at a county fair a few years back he couldn't quite remember all the words -- but he mixes up his arrangements and keeps things interesting. Plus with such a huge back catalog to draw from you never know what he'll play next. Mark your calendars.
