Bob Dylan’s Simple Requests to Come to Asia and Denmark
30 March 2011

No big welcome, just a normal hotel room with two windows, no filming or direct broadcasting the show are among the requests of Bob Dylan when for when he comes to Vietnam to sing in HCM City on April 10. Bob Dylan’s tour to Asia-Pacific includes 25 shows, starting on April 3 in Taiwan, to China, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and finishing in the US on July 20.

Apart from the above simple requests, the famous singer posed two important requirements: the quality of sound must meet international standards and the seats cannot be lassified as VIP or economy seats.

Accordingly, all audiences will sit on the grass at the stadium of the RMIT International University in District 7, HCM City to enjoy Bob Dylan’s songs.

Before the 2-hour show by Bob Dylan, Vietnamese well-known singers – My Linh, Thanh Lam, Uyen Linh, Quang Dung, Duc Tuan and Tran Manh Tuan - will perform songs by Trinh Cong Son.

Dylan said that he knew a lot about the life and music career of Trinh Cong Son so Vietnam is a significant destination in his tour to Asia and Australia. Bob Dylan’s show in Vietnam is organized by Saigon Sound System, Thanh Nien Media Company and Trinh Cong Son’s family.

Bob Dylan’s tour to Asia-Pacific includes 25 shows, starting on April 3 in Taiwan, to China, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and finishing in the US on July 20.

Seven years ago, it was announced that Dylan would come to Vietnam to attend the World Peace Music Awards but the event was finally organized in the US.

Bob Dylan, 70, has been a major figure in music for five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler, and an apparently reluctant figurehead, of social unrest.

A number of his songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin’” became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. His early lyrics incorporated a variety of political, social and philosophical, as well as literary influences.

Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. Backed by a changing line-up of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the Never Ending Tour. His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but his greatest contribution is generally considered to be his songwriting.


Time Magazine ranks him among 100 most influential people of the 20th century.

Bob Dylan Plays His First Concert In China
Thursday April 07, 2011

Bob Dylan has made his long-awaited debut in China after finally getting approval from the country's leaders.


Bob Dylan on stage in Beijing

Dylan played classics like A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall at the Worker's Gymnasium in central Beijing, but dropped some of his well-known protest songs so as not to offend the government.

The 69-year-old folk legend was reportedly banned from playing there last year, but China's culture ministry last month gave the green light after his songs were vetted by censors.


Star received rapturous applause from the audience

He heads next to Shanghai and then Hong Kong for two more shows next week on a tour commemorating 50 years since his first major performance.

Dylan is best known for the politically-inspired songs of his early career, including The Times They Are A-Changin and his anti-war anthem Blowin' In The Wind - neither of which made it into his Beijing set.

China's leaders are widely believed to be nervous about the potential for politically provocative songs or statements by foreign rock acts and have reportedly blocked some bands from performing there in the past.

The performance came as political tension was heightened over the disappearance of controversial artist Ai Weiwei at the weekend.

The irony of it all. In his day Dylan was labeled a commie, socialist, anti American by many. The times are indeed a changin.

Bob Dylan denies China censored his choice of songs
14 May 2011


Dylan's set lists change from one show to the next

Singer Bob Dylan has hit back at suggestions that he gave in to censorship during a recent series of concerts in China.

The folk-rock legend, 69, agreed to give authorities set lists before performances in Shanghai and Beijing.

He was criticised in print and online for ignoring 1960s-era protest songs.

Writing on his website, Dylan has now insisted he knew nothing of any censorship and says he and his band played all the songs they intended to.

Bob Dylan shot to fame in the 1960s as an icon of the anti-war movement in the era of the Vietnam War.

Songs such as The Times They Are a-Changin' and Like a Rolling Stone became synonymous with the counterculture of the 1960s, and Dylan became a poster-boy for a disenchanted generation.

Dylan's vast back catalogue spans 34 studio albums and hundreds of individual songs, many recorded since the 1960s and spanning a wide range of musical styles.

He is known for embarking on lengthy concert tours - known as the Never-Ending Tour - sometimes playing 100 times each year.

Set lists change regularly, and the famously stubborn singer-songwriter often confounds fans who turn up wanting to hear specific numbers from his 1960s heyday.

'New kind of sellout'


Defending his choice of songs for the China leg of his current tour, Dylan wrote: "As far as censorship goes, the Chinese government had asked for the names of the songs that I would be playing.


Bob Dylan's arrival in China was big news in the country

"There's no logical answer to that, so we sent them the set lists from the previous three months. If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it and we played all the songs that we intended to play."

He had faced explicit criticism after the China shows, including from New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.

"The idea that the raspy troubadour of '60s freedom anthems would go to a dictatorship and not sing those anthems is a whole new kind of sellout," she wrote.

Ms Dowd criticised Dylan for not mentioning artist Ai Wei Wei, who was detained by Chinese authorities in the days running up to his first show in China.

"He sang his censored set, took his pile of Communist cash and left," she wrote.

Bob Dylan has often shied away from the label pinned on him in the 1960s.

"The Chinese press did tout me as a sixties icon, however, and posted my picture all over the place with Joan Baez, Che Guevara, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg," he wrote on his website.

"The concert attendees probably wouldn't have known about any of those people.

"Regardless, they responded enthusiastically to the songs on my last 4 or 5 records. Ask anyone who was there. They were young and my feeling was that they wouldn't have known my early songs anyway."

To my fans and followers
May 13



Allow me to clarify a couple of things about this so-called China controversy which has been going on for over a year. First of all, we were never denied permission to play in China. This was all drummed up by a Chinese promoter who was trying to get me to come there after playing Japan and Korea. My guess is that the guy printed up tickets and made promises to certain groups without any agreements being made. We had no intention of playing China at that time, and when it didn't happen most likely the promoter had to save face by issuing statements that the Chinese Ministry had refused permission for me to play there to get himself off the hook. If anybody had bothered to check with the Chinese authorities, it would have been clear that the Chinese authorities were unaware of the whole thing.

We did go there this year under a different promoter. According to Mojo magazine the concerts were attended mostly by ex-pats and there were a lot of empty seats. Not true. If anybody wants to check with any of the concert-goers they will see that it was mostly Chinese young people that came. Very few ex-pats if any. The ex-pats were mostly in Hong Kong not Beijing. Out of 13,000 seats we sold about 12,000 of them, and the rest of the tickets were given away to orphanages. The Chinese press did tout me as a sixties icon, however, and posted my picture all over the place with Joan Baez, Che Guevara, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. The concert attendees probably wouldn't have known about any of those people. Regardless, they responded enthusiastically to the songs on my last 4 or 5 records. Ask anyone who was there. They were young and my feeling was that they wouldn't have known my early songs anyway.

As far as censorship goes, the Chinese government had asked for the names of the songs that I would be playing. There's no logical answer to that, so we sent them the set lists from the previous 3 months. If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it and we played all the songs that we intended to play.

Everybody knows by now that there's a gazillion books on me either out or coming out in the near future. So I'm encouraging anybody who's ever met me, heard me or even seen me, to get in on the action and scribble their own book. You never know, somebody might have a great book in them.
