BOB DYLAN EUROPEAN CONCERT TOUR 1981
After some concerts in North America, the European leg of the 1981 tour started on June 21 in Toulouse, France and consisted of twenty three concerts, the largest number of concerts taking place in England where eight shows were performed. All shows from July 1 onwards were recorded by members of Dylan's crew.
The European tour ended in tragedy in Avignon, France, on 25 July, where a member of the crowd felt into the electric cables before the first song and caused total power loss. Dylan and the band improvised an unplugged instrumental until the power was restored and Saved was started from the beginning. In the accident two people were killed, but the show went ahead despite the incident.
