Bob Dylan Revisited by Waters, Shorrock, Matthews, Parkinson, Carr

John Waters, Glenn Shorrock, Wendy Matthews, Doug Parkinson and Wes Carr will perform Bob Dylan Revisited in Sydney and Melbourne in May.

‘Blowing in the Wind’ was a game changer for me along with ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ and ‘Please Please Me’,” Glenn Shorrock said in a statement. “I became a “Folkie“ for awhile. I heard Peter Paul and Mary and Bob at the same time…both versions moved me and still do and Bob continues his mystical musical journey. I’m looking forward to “touching the hem of his garment” again, as part of the upcoming concerts.”

The shows, presented by Abstract Entertainment, will celebrate Dylan as singer, songwriter, poet, musician and literary genius.

“Dylan got to me (or I got to him) straight away – no filter. I told my friends there was this guy in the states who picks an acoustic guitar and sings through his nose. I also heard him do a ‘talking blues’, and the hipness of that got me in,” John Waters said.

Wendy Matthews added, “Bob Dylan’s music reluctantly sparked a generation that began to question and shift the whole world. I am excited to be a part of this special event, and honoured to perform and celebrate these classic songs with iconic singers and an extraordinary band.”

“From the early 60’s when he first came to prominence, Dylan’s lyrics transcended boy/girl romantic innuendo and drew inspiration from classic literature and poetry. He set the new standard for lyric writing. History has revealed him to be a visionary artist,” said Doug Parkinson.

“Falling in love with Dylan is like falling in love with many artists at one time. From “Free-wheelin” to “bringing it all back home” – to “blonde on blonde” it all made so much sense to me. He lived in a great time when albums were a body of work, and the artist had the freedom to push their own boundaries, and create works that made statements and reflected the ethos of the time,” added Wes Carr.

Tickets on pre-sale from Friday 18 January, general on sale from Monday, 21 January.
