Bob Dylan at The Mosque - February 11th 1966

Only 7 months after his controversial first electric performance at the Newport Folk Festival, Bob Dylan rolled into town with his band to play The Mosque (now The Landmark Theater) on February 11th, 1966: 45 years ago today. He played this show in between New York City and Nashville sessions for his Blonde on Blonde album, which would be released a few months later. Tickets for this show were a whopping $2 to $3.75.

  1. This is an excellent find! $2.00 for Dylan back when he was good (and had just gone electric)! Thank you for posting!

    And is there any chance that there is a poster from the Jimi Hendrix show at the Mosque in August of 1968? I've been looking for those materials. Shoot me a message if yes. (
