Bob Dylan/Mavis Staples
June 4th-August 14th
As a teenager, Dylan loved Staple Singers records. "I said to myself, ‘One day, you'll be standing with your arm around that girl,'" he said of Mavis Staples last year. (After they met in the Sixties, he famously proposed to her.) Now, they're reuniting for a 27-date tour of outdoor venues. Staples expects to delve into her late-Sixties Stax catalog, and Dylan has been focusing recently on post-1997 material. "I hope Bobby won't hide from me," Staples told Rolling Stone. "I might ask him, ‘If we get into a hotel that has a kitchenette, would you want me to cook for you?' I'll fix him whatever he wants."
