NEW HAVEN, CT, 6 August 1966
- Cancelled concert
After his motorcycle accident in Woodstock on July 29th, 1966, Bob Dylan stopped for years his public concerts and tours. This (not so) dramatic accident probably saved his life, as it abruptly put an end to the infernal rhythm that was his at that time.
All the bookings for the rest of 1966 and beyond were cancelled.
