Tickets go on sale Friday (at 10am), but one of you will already have a pair of tickets to see Bob Dylan November 20th at the Verizon Center because we’re giving them away before you can even buy them!
If you read TVD, you surely can already appreciate being given the opportunity to see this living legend, whose accomplishments include winning eleven Grammys and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but just in case, 5min.com has a nice little (five-minute) recap of the life of the folk-rock-poet-political-activist.
Over the past fifty-plus years, in Bob Dylan’s exceptional and prolific career, he’s inspired countless musicians and had at least one band name themselves after one of his albums (Blonde on Blonde from the late ’60s, also a Nada Surf song).
Dylan will be joined by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, who just released his latest album Privateering earlier this month. Dylan’s own latest album (his thirty-fifth studio album), Tempest, is out tomorrow, September 11th.
We’re going to make this easy on you. To enter to win the tickets, tell us your favorite Bob Dylan collaboration, cover, or inspiration. There are so many.
Besides Blonde on Blonde, both the band and the song, I have to call the GNR version of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.” You understand.
The winner will be chosen at noon on Wednesday, September 12th.
