Dylan to play Barclays Center

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Bob Dylan will end his North American tour at the Barclays Center on Nov. 21, a spokesperson for the arena confirmed yesterday.

Dylan — performing as Bob Dylan and His Band with Special Guest Mark Knopfler — joins Barbra Streisand, Rush, Justin Bieber, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Andrea Bocelli and other world-famous entertainers who are scheduled to play the new arena in its opening months.

Barclays, home of the Brooklyn Nets, opens with a concert by Jay-Z on Friday, Sept. 28.

Dylan played Prospect Park in August 2008. Reviews were mixed, as he kept the crowd waiting for more than two hours and his voice was not in the best shape.

At the end of his show, he said his only words to the crowd: “Man, I wish the Dodgers hadn’t left Brooklyn.”
