Bob Dylan will play his first-ever concert in Vietnam in April. The singer has been booked at a 8,250-person capacity stadium in Ho Chi Minh City on April 10th as part of tour of Asia that also includes his recently announced first-ever concerts in China.

According to Dylan's Vietnamese promoter Rod Quinton, the folk-rock legend is popular in the country for his protest songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'." This should make for a very different show than what he will do in China, where his setlist will be vetted by government officials to keep him from performing his more political numbers.
