'Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story' will chronicle the musician's 1975-76 tour
The legendary director has helmed a new film on Dylan’s famed ‘Rolling Thunder Revue’ tour, which took place during 1975-76 and saw the musician performing with the likes of Joan Baez, Mick Ronson and T-Bone Burnett. Titled Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, the film has been described as “part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream”.
Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story will be released worldwide on Netflix and in selected cinemas on June 12. Check out a new poster for the film below.
The film will feature on-camera interviews with Dylan, and, according to a press release, promises to “capture the troubled spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Dylan performed during the fall of that year”.
A companion 14-CD box set will also be released in June, with ‘The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings’ collection now available to pre-order on Dylan’s official website.
“A comprehensive anthology of music from the mythic first leg of Bob Dylan’s groundbreaking Rolling Thunder Revue, this 14CD box set includes all five of Dylan’s full sets from that tour that were professionally recorded,” a description of the box set reads.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Dylan would be opening his own music venue and whisky distillery in Nashville.
