Bob Dylan To Play Xcel Energy Center October 25

One of Minnesota’s most-famous artists is coming home for a performance in a little over a month from now.  Bob Dylan will perform at the Xcel Energy Center on Wednesday, October 25 – along with Mavis Staples.  If the turn-around time on the show date seems short, that’s because it is;  the concert was just announced today on the venue’s social media.

I think by now most-everyone who lives in the Northland knows the Dylan/Minnesota-backstory.  Robert Zimmerman was born in Duluth, moved to Hibbing at a young age, and graduated there from high school.  During his formative years, he was in attendance at the Buddy Holly Duluth concert that occurred the day before The Day The Music Died in 1959. Soon after school, Dylan moved to New York City where he established himself in the emerging folk scene.  Soon, he was signed to Columbia Records and in the years since has become one of Americana’s most-revered poet/song-stylists.

Dylan also has an infamous love-hate relationship with his home state and area – although he claims different.

Ticket prices start at $52.50 for the 7:30 PM show.  They go on sale September 15 at 12 Noon at the Xcel Energy Center’s Box Office, Ticketmaster, or by calling 800-745-3000.
