The great Bob Dylan is to play three nights in Blackpool on his upcoming leg of his never ending tour. Dylan plays Glasgow, Blackpool and London in November 2013 – that’s what all tours should look like!
As someone who grew up in Blackpool it seems bizarre that the great Bobby D will be hanging out in the town checking out the illuminations, talking old times with the Blackpool landladies, getting the tram to the gig, fighting off seagulls in his kiss-me-quick hat but I know he will love the place and its Victoriana (the Opera House is a great venue and he should look at the Empress Ballroom – the best venue in the UK) and its strange beauty and magic of its own.
Maybe the political parties will come back for their conferences instead of moaning about the hotels!
