DYLANesque presents two shows:
The Bob Dylan Story
– A 2-hour show celebrating the life, times and music of the legendary Bob Dylan
“Folk Singer, Rebel, Beat Poet, Rock Star”
Jeff Jenkins, lead singer, opens the show with a tale from 1961, when a young 19 yr old hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with a guitar and $10 in his pocket – and went on to become one of the world’s most successful songwriters of all time.
Starting from his humble beginnings busking in cafes, ‘DYLANesque – The Bob Dylan Story’ is a 2-hour narrated rock show that leads you through the songs and events that shaped Dylan; his relationships and breakups, religious conversions, the dramatic scenes when Bob ‘went electric’ at Newport Folk Festival in 1965, how he went from playing solo to playing with The Band, through all his incarnations including the much loved Travelling Wilbury’s. This Bob Dylan tribute is a theatre piece that takes you on a moving and powerful musical journey.
Jenkins performs with an electrifying 4 piece band giving incredible performances of ‘Blowin in the Wind’, ‘Lay Lady Lay’, ‘Tangled up in Blue’, ‘Rolling Stone’, ‘Hurricane’, ‘All Along the Watchtower’ and many more – this is a show not to be missed!
True Confessions REVISITED
– A 2-hour show inspired by the 1986 concert tour when Dylan toured with Tom Petty
Bob Dylan and Tom Petty made history when they joined forces for one of THE greatest concert tours of all time, on their TRUE CONFESSIONS tour of 1986. Bob Dylan needed a backing band and in a stroke of genius, the promoter asked Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, who were at the top of their game. Tom took less than 3 seconds to agree and upped the ante even further by bringing along his great friend Stevie Nicks. Stevie was the obvious choice for the tour, having just had a huge hit with Stop Draggin my Heart Around.
Relive that incredible line up as the creators of much-acclaimed show DYLANesque – The Bob Dylan Story bring you TRUE CONFESSIONS REVISITED, taking inspiration from that legendary tour. Rock out to Running Down a Dream, American Girl, Don’t Come Around Here No More, The Waiting, Refugee, Like a Rolling Stone, All Along the Watchtower, Hard Rain, Tombstone Blues, Knocking on Heaven’s Door & Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 plus many other class Dylan Petty tracks.
