Watch a preview of Bob Dylan’s forthcoming ‘Shadow Kingdom’ livestream

The legendary singer-songwriter’s digital concert will premiere later this month

Bob Dylan has shared a brief insight of his forthcoming Shadow Kingdom livestream event, which is set to premiere on July 18.

The 30-second, black-and-white clip, shared on Dylan’s Instagram account, shows him performing his 1971 song ‘Watching the River Flow’ onstage with an extensive backing band.

The words “The Early Songs of Bob Dylan” appear onscreen, hinting that the digital concert may centre on the older material in the veteran singer-songwriter’s back catalogue.

When the livestream was announced earlier this month, a statement from the show’s organisers said the event would see Dylan “in an intimate setting as he presents renditions of songs from his extensive and renowned body of work created especially for this event.”

Shadow Kingdom will mark Dylan’s first live performance since late 2019. It will also be his first appearance since releasing his latest album, last year’s ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’. Tickets are available for the event, which will broadcast through the livestreaming platform Veeps, here.
