Continuing a tradition that began at the Caravan Club’s original location in Oakleigh in 2011 for Bob’s 70th, Leicashow and Caravan are upping the ante to bring their beloved Bob Dylan Birthday bash to St Kilda’s iconic Palais Theatre for the first time on Thursday May 23.
It’s a tradition that has seen some of the biggest and brightest in Australian music – including Vika & Linda, Joe Camilleri, Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers – perform songs that are enmeshed in the very fabric of their musical lives and to wish Bob a good one!
Revered vocalists and long-established Dylan fan favourites Ross Wilson, Rebecca Barnard, Mick Thomas, Lisa Miller, Charles Jenkins and Rob Snarski are all on board, and there are other vocalists to be announced. They’ll all be backed as always by the incredible house band, The Luminaries featuring musical director Shane O’Mara, Shane Reilly, Adrian Whitehead, Rick Plant and Ben Wiesner, and huge Bob buff Brian Nankervis is MC’ing. As is the case every year, everybody will dig deep and give their very best – for you and for Bob.
FOREVER YOUNG: THE SONGS OF BOB DYLAN takes place at The Palais Theatre, St Kilda on Thursday 23 May 2024.
