Referred to as "Bobfest" by Neil Young, the Bob Dylan: The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration took place in Madison Square Garden on October 16, 1992. The four-hour concert commemorated Dylan's first album on Columbia Records. Superstar musical guests like Johnny Cash, Eddie Vedder, and Tom Petty showed up to play Dylan songs. Performance highlights include "Just Like a Woman" by Richie Havens, "Foot of Pride" by Lou Reed, and "Blowin' in the Wind" by Stevie Wonder. Dylan himself performs a few songs at the end, concluding with an improvised version of "Girl From the North Country." This two-pack home video contains over 29 songs along with a Dylan biography.
Behind the scenes
This movie is a great concert film and testimony to the influence of Dylan on other musicians, of many generations. My favourites are the ensemble rendition of "My Back Pages" and Chrissie Hynde's version of "I shall be released".
