Bob Dylan’s ‘Americanarama’ Tour Comes to Hoboken


Hoboken’s Pier A hosted the traveling Americanarama tour this past Friday night.  The 6-hour show featured performances by Bob Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham. The evening also boasted a series of surprise guest appearances, including Allman Brothers Band/Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes, The J. Geils Band singer Peter Wolf, Mott The Hoople’s Ian Hunter and Hoboken musical hero and The Bongos member James Mastro.

But there was no star bigger than Pier A Park. The slip of Hudson riverfront greenery once again proved itself a terrific place to catch a live show — particularly on a gorgeous summer evening with the reflection of the cumulus clouds visible in the paneled glass of the tall buildings in Manhattan. The sound was good, the sun danced off of the black plastic that lined the back of the stage and the western face of the Empire State Building, a breeze blew across the river, and the vibes were overwhelmingly positive.

More shows here please!!!
