The Legendary Bob Dylan Performs at UPMC Events Center (Mon., 11/15/2021)

It’s been a long, long time since Pete Seeger introduced an up-and-comer named Bob Dylan to the crowd at the 1964 Newport Folk Festival. At the next year’s Newport, Dylan was booed when he showed up with an electric guitar. Decades later, Dylan was chastised globally for not showing up at all to accept the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. But in between and ever since, he’s done quite a bit of showing up. The Dylan curriculum vitae to date includes: 39 studio albums plus bunches of live albums, bootleg albums, and other recordings and collaborations, in genres and styles from folk to talking blues, rock, country, Christian, covers of Frank Sinatra ballads … and a genre that one might simply call “Dylan.” So many of his songs are iconic that space does not permit a list. And though his lyrics have been analyzed extensively for deep meanings, the fact remains that Dylan is a musician, who loves to play and sing live. He visits UPMC Events Center with his band on their latest tour. Recent setlists have focused on Dylan classics like “When I Paint My Masterpiece.” His most recent album release is last year’s “Rough and Rowdy Ways.” 8 p.m. Robert Morris University, 6001 University Blvd., Moon.
