Mr. Bob Dylan
According to Jerry Mickelson of Jam Productions, the concert promotion company who conceived of the idea for the tour and is presenting many of its shows, "Bob Dylan has always brought his music to people wherever they are -- in big cities or in small towns, in big arenas or in small clubs, and everywhere in between -- and this tour fits right in with that approach. Having produced several of Bob Dylan's concerts in these types of venues over the years, we found that the special atmosphere of a ballpark adds a unique element to his already great shows. A complete tour of these ballparks will have fans experiencing a great summer tour." As Bob Dylan said, "What we aim to do with this tour is hit the ball out of the park, touch all the bases and get home safely."
While Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson have performed at shows together over the years, "The Bob Dylan Show" marks the first time the two hugely popular and acclaimed artists, songwriters and performers will be touring together. The Hot Club Of Cowtown hails from Austin, TX and performs its unique brand of Western-Swing influenced music throughout the country and many parts of the world.
