Byron Bay Blues Festival; Bob Dylan, BB King & Elvis Costello


Well – that sounds very good indeed, should get a lot of people excited.

The official Blues Festival site says first announcement tomorrow (4 Nov) – yet ABC had a full story with quotes from Peter Noble and everything (ie. must be true – not a rumor). You can read the story at the ABC here.

However – not sure what’s meant by “…been chasing Dylan’s signature since 2003 when the folk legend was booked to play but pulled out at the last minute.” and “He used to say, ‘don’t put me in any town I’ve never heard of’, and finally we’ve done it, although I think he’s heard of Byron now.”

Many people will remember the original attempted Bob Dylan concert in Tyagarah back in 2001 – the DA for 7,000 people with Dylan as the headline was not approved (issues with RTA). So 10 years on and it’s all happening.

Anyway – will post more tomorrow when the news is released.
