Bob Dylan, who has been away from our stages since 2015, is now back to Italy. It has been three years full of events for the American singer-song writer, who released 3 records (“Fallen Angels” in 2016, “Triplicate” and the brand new “Trouble No More” in 2017), awarded with the Medal of Freedom by Obama, and above all, won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016, an award never given to a musician. The tour will start from Rome with these three dates at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, produced by the Fondazione Musica per Roma in collaboration with The Base. In December 2016, Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature by the Swedish Academy “because he created new poetical expressions in the great tradition of American music.” In 2012, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civil honour of the United States, and in 2008 he won the special Pulitzer Award for “his deep impact on pop music and American culture through his lyrics of extraordinary poetic power.” He also got the title of Officier della Légion d’Honneur in France in 2013, the Polar Music Awards in Sweden in 2000, and many different honorary degrees, like for example the ones from the University of St. Andrews and Princeton University, and many other awards.
Following the wave of the reinterpretation process started with “Fallen Angels” and “Shadows In The Night”, on March 31st 2017 it was released his first triple album ever in Bob Dylan’s life: “Triplicate”. The two previous records, “Fallen Angels” and “Shadows In The Night”, in which he reinterpreted the American music classics, were a global success for the critic and were nominated to Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Vocal Album. “Fallen Angels” debuted in the Top 10 hits in more than twelve countries, like United Kingdom, USA, Italy, Netherlands and Austria, whereas “Shadows In The Night” immediately entered the Top 10 hits in 17 countries, hitting the top charts of United Kingdom, Ireland, Sweden and Norway. The Dylan’s last seven studio albums have been universally considered as some of the best of his glorious career and touched new peaks of commercial and critic success. “Time Out Of Mind” in 1997, platinum record, got many Grammies, like Album of the Year, whereas “Love And Theft”, platinum record too, got many Grammy nominees and a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Bob Dylan sold more than 125 million records all around the world.
