Three music heavyweights, all with prior Louisville experience, will take to the stage at Slugger Field in July.
The Louisville Bats are pleased to announce that The Bob Dylan Show, featuring Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson, will perform live in concert at Louisville Slugger Field on Wednesday, July 8 at 5:30 p.m.; gates will open at 5:00 p.m. This will be Willie Nelson’s third appearance at Louisville Slugger Field, Bob Dylan’s second and Indiana native John Mellencamp’s first visit.
Since first embarking on a journey of minor league ballparks in 2004, over a half-million fans have been drawn to the tour, ranked by The Boston Globe as “the most relaxed, enjoyable shows of the year”. This will mark just the second time in the past 24 years that these three performers have shared the concert stage.
“We are pleased to be able to bring another quality concert to Louisville Slugger Field,” said Bats team President Gary Ulmer. “Our previous concerts have been very successful and it’s obvious that concert fans enjoy the ballpark setting. We will make every attempt to continue to bring concerts here in the future”
