Dylan Shocks Fans by Playing Grand Piano on Stage
and not just for one song either. or two. or seven.
Rolling Stone reports: "Bob Dylan fans knew they were in for something special at England's Hop Farm Festival on Saturday when roadies wheeled a grand piano onto the stage before the show. Over the past decade Dylan has played a keyboard (while standing) for much of his set, but at Saturday's show he totally abandoned that instrument after opening the show with "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat."
"For eight of the show's 16 songs he sat behind the grand piano; during the rest he stood in the center of the stage while singing and playing harmonica. If he sticks to this set-up, it will be the biggest change to the look and sound of his stage show in a decade."
