Bob Dylan – Ultra Rare 1964 Royal Festival Hall Handbill / For Dylan’s First-Ever London Concert
An extraordinarily rare handbill advertising Bob Dylan’s first-ever London concert, at the prestigious Royal Festival Hall on May 17, 1964—a week before Dylan’s twenty third birthday.
While this show took place four months after the release of his third album, The Times They Are A-Changin’, he is billed as “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan,” and “America’s great, young folk-singer and Composer of “Blowin’ in the Wind”—likely as his earlier Freewheelin’ album had just entered the UK charts.
During the two-hour sold-out show Dylan premiered three new songs: “Chimes of Freedom,” “Mr. Tambourine Man,” and “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” also playing a number of songs from The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan—but surprisingly not “Blowin’ in the Wind.”
In excellent, bright and unfaded condition, with a few barely noticeable scuffs and creases to the bottom right edge. 7 ½” x 9 7/8”.
The first example we’ve offered of this very rare and historic handbill.
