Bob Dylan on this day: 17 April

by Tony Attwood

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.

The 16 April listing is of course still on the site

  • 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

If you have anything to add, please do send it in.
