Bob Dylan Cancels Tour of Asia
Bob Dylan always said that he didn't believe there were any deep messages in his songs. Unfortunately, the government in China thinks otherwise. Already on the cusp of banning Google, China has now refused to let Bob Dylan perform a string of shows due to his status as a "counterculture figure". Dylan had just finished a two week tour of Japan and was looking to extend things into China. The folk icon was looking to also play Beijing as well as South Kore and Taiwan, but has now scrapped all proposed shows. Dylan will return to the road May 29th in Athens, Greece to begin a major tour of Europe.
