BOB DYLAN 1966 UK TOUR
Bob Dylan's 1966 Tour was notable as the first tour where he employed an electric band backing him, following his "going electric" at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. The musicians Dylan employed as his backing band were known as The Hawks; they subsequently became famous as The Band. The 1966 tour was filmed by director D. A. Pennebaker. Pennebaker's footage was edited by Dylan and Howard Alk to produce a little-seen film, Eat the Document, an anarchic account of the tour. Drummer Mickey Jones also filmed the tour with an 8mm home movie camera. Many of the 1966 tour concerts were recorded by Columbia Records.
The leg known as 'UK Tour' started on May 5th, 1966 in Dublin, visited Belfast, Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leicester, Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, and ended in London on May 27th 1966.
