Australia was the first major stop (outside the US) for Dylan’s legendary World Tour in 1966. The fortunate few thousand here who witnessed it saw what proved to be the watershed moment in Dylan’s career. It was the culmination of Dylan’s evolution from folkie icon to fully-fledged rock star, which had begun with his controversial “electric” debut at the Newport Folk Festival on July 25, 1965. The punishing schedule of the 1965-66 period – three landmark albums somehow crammed in around a frantic round of tours and other engagements – took its toll on Dylan.
1. She Belongs To Me ( Bob Dylan (vocal, harmonica & guitar).)
2. Fourth Time Around
3. Visions Of Johanna
4. It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue
5. Desolation Row
Leaving the continental United States, Dylan first traveled to Honolulu, Hawaii and from there to Australia, where he performed seven concerts over ten days in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide andPerth. The tour group then flew to Scandinavia for concerts in Stockholm and Copenhagen. After Scandinavia, Dylan toured the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland) in May. He made a short trip to Parisbefore he finished the tour in London.
