Multiple GRAMMY®-nominee Joan Osborne brings her critically acclaimed concert, Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan, to the Capitol Theatre! In addition to releasing a string of studio albums featuring her frank, expressive original songwriting (the three-time platinum, six-time GRAMMY®-nominated Relish, Righteous Love, Pretty Little Stranger, Little Wild One and Love and Hate), Osborne has also released three albums of soul, R&B and blues covers (How Sweet It Is, Breakfast In Bed, which also features originals and the GRAMMY®-nominated Bring It On Home). Most recently in 2017, she released her ninth studio album, Songs of Bob Dylan.
On Songs of Bob Dylan, Joan Osborne unleashes her sizable gifts as a vocalist and interpreter upon Dylan’s celebrated canon. With performances honed during the time Osborne spent polishing them throughout Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan, two critically acclaimed two-week residencies she performed at New York City’s Café Carlyle in 2016 and 2017, Osborne now brings this tour on the road.
The album spans Dylan’s beloved standards from the ’60s and ’70s (Masters of War, Highway 61 Revisited, Rainy Day Women #12 & 35, Buckets of Rain, Tangled Up In Blue) to some of Osborne’s favorites from his later albums, including Dark Eyes (from 1985’s Empire Burlesque), Ring Them Bells(from 1989’s Oh Mercy), Tryin’ To Get To Heaven (from 1997’s Time Out of Mind) and High Water (from 2001’s Love and Theft).
