Bob Dylan 2010 Never Ending Tour

Touring band
Bob Dylan:
vocal, electric keyboard (organ & piano), electric guitar, harmonica
Stu Kimball: electric and acoustic rhythm guitar
Charlie Sexton: lead guitar
Donnie Herron: violin, viola, mandolin, banjo, pedal steel guitar, trumpet
Tony Garnier: double bass and bass guitar
George Recile: drums & percussion

Nothing new this year, not even live debuts. Dylan plays only own songs with an unchanged band and never a guest player. No covers or traditionals. Like A Rolling Stone, Thunder On The Mountain, Ballad Of A Thin Man, and Highway 61 Revisited are played (almost) every show.
Tours in Japan (15 shows), Europe (Summer, 25), and the US (Summer, 23 and Fall, 39). Most of the shows contains 14 songs and 2-3 encores.
Dylan visits five new countries (Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Slovak Republic) and 23 new cities.

In February Dylan performs The Times They Are A-Changin’ (Patrick Warren on piano and Tony Garnier on bass) in the White House during A Celebration of Music From the Civil Rights Movement. Dylan is introduced by President Barack Obama. Two weeks later he receives the National Medal of Art, bud is not attending the ceremony in The White House.

Release of The Witmark Demos 1962-1964, The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 and The Original Mono Recordings.
Folksinger’s Choice, a long circulating bootleg, is official released in the UK. The Cynthia Gooding radio show was recorded 13 January 1962 in the WBAI Studios in New York City.
