BOB DYLAN: THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT CELEBRATION
Length: 1×210 with different lengths available
Genre: Music Concert
Recorded on October 16, 1992 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration captures many artists performing classic Dylan songs, before ending with three songs from Dylan himself.
The house band for the show was comprised of the surviving members of Booker T. and the MG’s: Booker T. Jones on organ, Donald “Duck” Dunn on bass, and Steve Cropper on guitar. Joining them is drummer Anton fig filling in for the late Al Jackson, plus drummer Jim Keltner. Longtime Saturday Night Live bandleader G.E. Smith served as the music director.
The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration was released in August 1993 just before Dylan was set to deliver his second folk studio set inside of a year – World Gone Wrong. The concert was dubbed “Bobfest” by Neil Young during the concert, right before launching into his cover of Dylan’s iconic “All Along the Watchtower”.
