Bob Dylan brings his AmericanaramA Music Festival to the Susquehanna Bank Center on Sunday, July 28 as apart of the annual XPoNential Music Festival. The tour’s lineup includes Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham.
Last night at the tour’s stop in Toronto, headliner Bob Dylan invited Jim James of My Morning Jacket and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco to join him on stage for performances of Rev. Gary Davis’ “Twelve Gates To The City” and Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind.”
Canadian singer-songwriter Feist also made an appearance for a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanna” and Wilco’s “You and I”–which they've performed before live on Letterman. The entire My Morning Jacket crew joined Wilco for a cover of “Cinnamon Girl” by Neil Young–something of a regular occurrence during this tour.
Will all three bands unite during next weekend’s performance in Camden, NJ? You’ll just have to grab some tickets and go to find out.
In related news, Bob Dylan will be re-releasing his 1970 album, Self Portrait, as a part of his four-disc Bootleg Series. This is causing a stir in the Dylan fan community as it's known to be one of his least loved works. [Rolling Stone]
