Florence: Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler …and Nelson Mandela?

Bob Dylan & Mark Knopfler together in concert in Florence, Italy

Seeing Bob Dylan live in concert is being involved in a part of history that thankfully has not yet become the past. He manages to put new twists on his classic songs, with lucky concert-goers witness to his ever-evolving musical genius.

Florence is now lucky enough to be hosting one of Bob Dylan’s concerts which sees this musical great team up with fellow guitar legend, Mark Knopfler.

Having headed Dire Straits up to the recording of one of the greatest albums ever, ‘Brothers in Arms’, Knopfler took a break from the band before returning to perform in the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute concert on 11th June, 1988. Now, Bob Dylan and his band together with Mark Knopfler are playing at the Mandela Forum in Florence.

The Bob Dylan with Mark Knopfler concert is happening on 11th November, 2011, from 9pm. Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler concert ticket in Florence prices range from 51.75 euro for standing, through to 92 euro for the top tickets.
