COLUMBIA RECORDS CELEBRATES
THE MUSIC OF BOB DYLAN
THE 30th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT CELEBRATION, NYC,
16 October 1992, Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden, often called "MSG" or simply "The Garden", is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the New York City borough of Manhattan. Located in Midtown Manhattan between 7th and 8th Avenues from 31st to 33rd Streets, it is situated atop Pennsylvania Station.
In recognition of Bob Dylan's 30 years as a recording artist, Columbia organized a concert on October 16, 1992, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, with many artists performing classic Dylan songs, before ending with five songs from Dylan himself.
The house band for the show were the surviving members of Booker T. and the MG's: Booker T. Jones on organ, Donald "Duck" Dunn on bass, and Steve Cropper on guitar. Joining them was drummer Anton Fig filling in for the late Al Jackson, plus drummer Jim Keltner. Longtime Saturday Night Live bandleader G. E. Smith served as the musical director. An after-party was held at Tommy Makem's Irish Pavilion bar / restaurant.
