BOB DYLAN IS COMING THIS WAY FOR A CONCERT. AUGUST 18th, MATTER OF FACT.(And at a baseball park, too, which is always a bonus for a baseball fan such as myself.)
And while this may be sacrilege to all of those who adore Dylan, but I'm actually equally excited at the prospect of seeing Jimmie Vaughan (older brother of the late guitar God Stevie Ray, and Jimmie's quite the God himself) AND Junior Brown. Holy shit...the songwriter in me is salivating, and the ex-guitarist in me is about to start seizing. And it's not like Dylan tours that much anymore...and at a baseball venue??? Who do I need to kiss?

The Bob Dylan Show Featuring:

Ticket price: $49.50
Also scheduled to appear: Jimmie Vaughan, Junior Brown, Elana James & The Continental Two.
There will be an internet presale through Bobdylan.com on Wednesday, July 12 at 10:00 AM. (A password is required for the presale and can be found on the Bobdylan.com page.)
Tickets will go on sale to the general public through Ticketmaster on Saturday, July 8 at 10:00 AM. Ticketmaster phone number: 336-722-6400
And while I believe they gouge concertgoers left and right, apparently Ticketmaster holds the keys and tickets to the musical kingdom, or this one at least.
Glad it's in Winston-Salem, though...really nice place to visit and it will be great for a road trip, too. More info on the venue, Ernie Shore Field. (You gotta support any team that voluntarily goes by the Warthogs...conjures up memories of TV's "Sweathogs"
from "Welcome Back, Kotter" more than three decades ago.)
SO glad now I've been holding back 10% for 'unexpected needs and/or wants'...can go do this lovely little thing and still stay on budget.
And, yes, it's the little things that do make me happy. LOL. Life is good.
