Bob Dylan to perform in Vietnam

2011-03-15 09:26

Hanoi, Vietnam – American singer Bob Dylan, who became famous for his anti-war songs during the Vietnam War, will perform for the first time in the communist country.

His promoter Rod Quinton says that Dylan will sing at a 8 000-capacity university stadium in the southern commercial hub of Ho Chi Minh City next month.

Quinton said today that organisers were expecting the concert on April 10 to sell out.

He says they expect a mixed crowd of Vietnamese and foreigners of all ages.

General admission tickets are priced at $43 (R296), slightly higher than Vietnam’s monthly minimum wage, while VIP tickets are $120.
