Bob Dylan will open the 50th anniversary of Umbria Jazz at the Arena Santa Giuliana


“While the world keeps trying to celebrate him as an institution, pin him down, cast him in the Nobel Prize canon, embalm his past, this drifter always keeps on making his next escape. On Rough and Rowdy Ways, Dylan is exploring terrain nobody else has reached before—yet he just keeps pushing on into the future.” – Rolling Stone

“After all these years on the move, literally and metaphorically, who knew that creative contentment would suit him so well?” – Mojo

“Rough and Rowdy Ways is a tremendous collage of erudite references to culture high and low, a survey of human greatness and frailty often delivered as a series of knowing winks. It’s about the human condition; it’s probably quite autobiographical too.” – The Guardian

Bob Dylan will open the 50th anniversary of Umbria Jazz at the Arena Santa Giuliana on July 7 and present the album “Rough and Rowdy Ways” released by Dylan in June 2020. The record was described by most of the international critics as one of best albums released by the Nobel Prize songwriter in the last few years.

IMPORTANT: NO Audio, video or photo permitted during the show.

On Artist request, this concert is a “PHONE FREE SHOW”, this means that phones are not allowed in the hall during the concert.

  • How it works?
    Once you arrive at the venue, Yondr (the phone pouch company engaged on this tour) will have its dedicated staff available to help you put your phone in a locked and secure pouch, which you will keep with you throughout the evening.
  • What should I do if I have an emergency and need to access my phone?
    You can unlock your phone pocket at any time by going to a dedicated and signposted area, intended for phone use. Do not hesitate to ask a Yondr staff member to help you.
  • Why are we doing this and is it mandatory?
    Having created this phone-free experience on recent tours, we believe it creates better times for everyone in attendance. Our eyes open a little more and our senses are slightly sharper when we lose the technological crutch we’ve grown accustomed to. And yes, it’s a non-negotiable deal.
