“Bob Dylan is one of the greatest songwriters of all time, a gifted wordsmith with a political conscience, incisive storytelling abilities and a poet-like acumen for meter and language,” his entry at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame read. “As a musician, he’s shaped popular music in innumerable ways—from inspiring the Beatles and bringing folk-rock into the mainstream to proving that electric guitars could be as revolutionary as acoustic ones.”
Dylan has performed in the Richmond-area before, most recently a 2017 tour stop at the now shuttered Richmond Coliseum. He also visited Altria Theater in 2015 and 2013 and the Diamond in 2004.BY SCOTT WISE
