From Forest Hills To The Free Trade Hall, A Historical View Of The Big Boo
â€˜Judas, the most hated name in human history! If you think youâ€™ve been called a bad name, try to work your way out from under that. Yeah, and for what? For playing an electric guitar?â€™ â€“ Bob Dylan
In 1966 There Wasâ€¦ the sell-out tour to end all tours. Bob Dylan and The Hawks found themselves at the epicentre of a storm of controversy. Their response? To unleash a cavalcade of ferocity from Melbourne to Manchester, from Forest Hills to the Free Trade Hall. For the first time, the full story can now be told from eye-witnesses galore; from timely reports, both mile wide and spot on; and from the participants themselves. And what better tour guide than Clinton Heylin, the esteemed Dylan biographer and one of the worldâ€™s leading rock historians. The price of admission? Thirty pieces of silver. The password? Play f***ing loud.
