Cat Power To Recreate Bob Dylan’s 1966 ‘Royal Albert Hall’ Show

Cat Power has announced that she will recreate Bob Dylan‘s iconic 1966 “Royal Albert Hall concert” at the venue on November 5.

Cat Power, also known as Chan Marshall, will play Dylan’s exact setlist from the iconic concert. Like Dylan, she will perform the first half of the set acoustically before switching to electric for the second half of the show.

A recording of Dylan’s Royal Albert Hall concert was formally released as a double album in 1998. The show took place just a few months after he first went electric at the Newport Folk Festival in the summer of 1965.

“When I finally got the opportunity to play the Royal Albert Hall, it was a no brainer,” Power said in a statement. “I just wanted to sing Dylan songs. And as much as any, this collection of his songs, to me, belong there.”
