CARAVAN MUSIC & LEICASHOW PRESENTS “FOREVER YOUNG 

A BOB DYLAN 80TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION”

@ MEMO MUSIC HALL, ST KILDA

Henry Wagons, Adalita, Mick Thomas, Lisa Miller, Charles Jenkins, Rebecca Barnard, Charm of Finches and others, with a house band led by Shane O’Mara, will celebrate Bob Dylan’s 80th Birthday over two nights at St. Kilda’s historic Memo Music Hall. MC’ed by Brian Nankervis!

“May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
May you stay forever young”
– Bob Dylan, from “Forever Young”
 
None of us are getting any younger, but certain things are apparently ageless.  And while Bob Dylan may be turning 80, his vast catalogue of songs – songs written over a period now spanning about 50 years – remains as wondrous, relevant and life-affirming as ever. It is a body of work that has, indeed, remained forever young.
 
St Kilda’s historic Memo Music Hall celebrates Bob’s 80th with “Forever Young – A Bob Dylan 80th Birthday Celebration”. MC’ed by Brian Nankervis, backed by a band hand-picked by the maestro Shane O’Mara and performed over two big nights, our million-dollar birthday bash will feature a cast of Melbourne’s finest vocalists and Dylanophiles, each performing songs that are enmeshed in the very fabric of their musical lives. Henry Wagons, Adalita, Mick Thomas, Lisa Miller, Charles Jenkins, Rebecca Barnard, and Charm of Finches; these are just some of the artists who will dig deep and give their very best – for you and for Bob. And there are more to be announced.
 
When he first sang the above lines from “Forever Young” back in 1973, Dylan was in his early thirties and a decade into his musical journey. He was already the most influential singer-songwriter of the rock age, but surely neither he nor anybody back then could’ve imagined just how well his music would travel. Come celebrate the timeless songs and enduring spirit of this singular artist when we present “Forever Young –  A Bob Dylan 80th Birthday Celebration @ Memo Music Hall, St Kilda’.
