Bob Dylan and his band
American music icon Bob Dylan and his band, with special guest Dawes, will appear in concert at 7:30 p.m. April 13 in the Convocation Center.

Dylan’s influence on American music spans both genres and generations. His multiple hits have helped to shape American folk music, traditional and Christian rock, country, R&B and blues, and his music has remained fresh and relevant to audiences since the 1960s.  Bob Dylan albums

A member of the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame since 1988, he is the winner of 10 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and the National Medal of Arts. Bob Dylan’s bio at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame

Last year Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, at a White House ceremony. In announcing the award, President Barack Obama cited the singer/songwriter’s “considerable influence on the civil rights movement of the 1960s and (his) significant impact on American culture over the past five decades.”

“Bob Dylan and his band are planning a special university tour this spring,” said Michael Silva, general manager of the Convocation Center at Cal U. “The location of the Convocation Center — on the campus of a major university, and easily accessible to college students from both Pittsburgh and Morgantown — makes this venue ideal for a tour that’s targeted toward students.

“Both Cal U and VenuWorks are excited to host this legendary performer and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner.”
