2023 Bob Dylan
ONLINE SALES: March 15
Rough and Rowdy Ways Tour
Life in a Song
His is such a gigantic and polyhedral song that it even has a Nobel Prize for Literature. Also the Prince of Asturias Award winner, Robert Allen Zimmerman, known by all as Bob Dylan, is together with Leonard Cohen, the most influential singer-songwriter of today, yesterday and tomorrow. Behind his music and his lyrics, there is an analytical and reflective world connected to mundane, timeless emotions. Then there is the music, the poetry, the dramatic gesture of his interpretations, the substratum of his compositions, rooted in the soil of North American folk and expanded with the natural countercultural rebellion of rock music. All the songs inhabit his voice, because he lives and expresses all emotions, regardless of the heart and blood that pump behind them. This universal troubadour returns to Granada, to the Festival at the Teatro del Generalife, in what will be his fourth visit, after that first one in 1999, embraced by the poetry of Lorca and within the framework of a program for history, in which none other than Lou Reed and Patti Smith also took part. Today his rendezvous with the Alhambra has more adjectives if that would be possible, but he substantiates everything as the great icon of popular culture of the 20th century that he is, and as the great protagonist of the history of author singing and rock of this time.

After having created this “phone free experience” in recent Bob Dylan’s tours, it has been proved that a phone free concert improves the audience’s musical experience. Our eyes open a little wider and our senses sharpen slightly once we forget about the “technological crutch” to which we have become so attached. People buying a ticket and attending the concert are explicitly assuming the above-mentioned conditions, and it will be their responsibility in case of non-compliance, although medical exemptions will be accepted for people depending on their phones for a specific treatment or for those in need of communication for other type of emergencies.
