Yesterday I started a little experiment to see if I could find a few anniversaries of events in Bob Dylan’s life just for that specific day.
It seemed quite an interesting thing to do, because it gave me a few perspectives that I hadn’t picked up on in writing the reviews, so I decided to continue a bit further. Here is 17 April.
- 17 April 1965. The Freewheelin Bob Dylan entered the British charts on 23 May 1964 and reached number one on this day
- 17 April 1980: Dylan played Toronto on the “Gospel Tour” and gave the first live performance of Ain’t gonna go to hell for anybody.
- 17 April 2002: The 329th and final performance of “In the Garden”
- 17 April 2005: Final live performance of “It takes a lot to laugh it takes a train to cry.” It was the 160th performance.
- 17 April 2015 – Bob Dylan Live at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center
