Hoppers stadium to host concert with rock legends Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson
The Bob Dylan Show has just announced the second annual tour of America’s minor league baseball parks. Dylan and Nelson will play First Horizon Park on June 11.
Last year, over 150,000 fans enjoyed a night under the stars with Bob Dylan and his band plus legendary country music icon Willie Nelson. That tour was named ‘“Most Creative Tour Package’” by industry-leader Pollstar Magazine, and this summer Bob & Willie are taking it On The Road Again. Opening the tour will be Dualtone recording artists The Greencards. All three bands will be performing separate sets.
Performing on this tour with his band, Bob Dylan has experienced one of his most creative and prolific periods over the past half-dozen years. Multiple Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, and over 500 concert performances have all found Bob Dylan to be in prime form. Recent performances with his new band have garnered rave reviews and played to capacity crowds.
Like Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson’s career has spanned 5 decades, and in that time he’s become one of the most prolific recording and touring artists in any genre of music. His popularity, as both a commercial success and a critic’s favorite, has garnered him shelves of awards, including recognition by the Country Music Association, the American Music Awards, numerous Grammy Awards, and many more.
Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to see two of America’s most revered musical treasures!
