40 Years before: Bob Dylan starts his first “real” WORLD TOUR at the Budokan Tokyo / Nippon Budokan Hall / Tokyo, Japan / February 20, 1978https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nippon_Budokan
The tour saw Dylan lineup with a new band, an eight piece band that was also accompanied by three backing singers. Which led some of the press in the US to describe the look and sound of the show as a ‘Las Vegas Tour’. The tour itself grossed over $20 Million which Dylan later stated he had some debts to pay off because “I had a couple of bad years. I put a lot of money into the movie, built a big house … and it costs a lot to get divorced in California.”
The tour also saw Dylan play Blackbushe Aerodrome, supported by Eric Clapton and Band, Joan Armatrading, Graham Parker and The Rumour, and Lake it was estimated that while attendance was expected at around 100,000 the actual attendance was somewhere between 200,000 and 250,000.
Full band lineup for the show tonight was Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar), Billy Cross (lead guitar), Alan Pasqua (keyboards), Steven Soles (rhythm guitar, backup vocals), David Mansfield (violin & mandolin), Steve Douglas (horns), Rob Stoner (bass), Bobbye Hall (percussion), Ian Wallace (drums), Helena Springs, Jo Ann Harris, Debbie Dye (background vocals).
Tonight’s shows included first ever live performances of the cover ‘Lonesome Bedroom’ and ‘The Man in Me’ from Dylan 1970 New Morning album.As well as the first live performance of Tomorrow Is A Long Time since Minneapolis 17th July 1963 and the first live performance of All I Really Want To Do since Newport 24 July 1965.
