Bob Dylan's China Tour Granted Permission


Bob Dylan's China Tour Granted Permission


His concerts in Beijing on April 6 and in Shanghai on April 8 have been approved by government officials.

Bob Dylan has reportedly been granted permission to play two shows in China next month following a review by officials. The "Like a Rolling Stone" hitmaker wanted to take his Never Ending Tour to the country in April 2010, but government officials refused to approve his dates in Beijing and Shanghai, prompting Dylan to scrap the rest of his Asian shows.

The music legend lodged a new application with China's Ministry of Culture for concerts this year and the plans have now been given the go-ahead, according to AFP. Executives at promotion company Gehua-LiveNation have reportedly confirmed that the concerts in Beijing on April 6 and in Shanghai on April 8 have been approved.

A statement from the company reads, "These Bob Dylan concerts are destined to be one of the year's major tours and a musical event of depth, grace and greatness."

Chinese authorities are notoriously strict when vetting foreign artists who want to perform in the country and Dylan was reportedly singled out for review because of his politically-charged lyrics.
