‘Everybody Must Get Stoned’ Before Dylan @ BJC

Now, this is only a suggestion.

But if you understood the reference in my title, you’ll probably want to be at the the Bryce Jordan Center on Nov. 9 at 8:00 pm when Bob Dylan returns to Penn State.

I can almost hear some people saying, “but that’s a Tuesday night, I have no time for blazing and watching the last living rock legend perform.” And to that I say: we don’t need you.

This is the second classic artist the Bryce Jordan Center has brought this semester with the first being The Eagles. For many, this will be the opportunity of a lifetime.

Bob Dylan, a man who needs no introduction is perhaps one of the greatest musicians of all time, definitely one of the best stemming from the ’60s Beat Movement. Dylan has been making music for over 50 years playing alongside greats like Hendrix and Janis Joplin. But, there is one thing that sets him apart from those artists: he’s still alive.

He didn’t OD on a bathroom floor or put a shotgun into his mouth–he actually kept a desire to continue playing music. This is a rare opportunity to see such an amazing artist grace our campus, even thought he probably won’t even leave his bus until his name is called.

So, if by the end of this you are still unsure as to whether the notoriety around this artists is deserved or not, take a quote from Mr. Dylan himself, “All I can do is be me, whoever that is.”

Ticket Information
Tickets for Dylan will be sold to students for $25 starting Thursday, September 30 at 12:00 pm. Valid student ID required. Tickets for the public start at $47.50 and go on sale Friday, October 1 at 10:00 am.
