During his UK tour in 1966 on 17 May, imperishable troubadour-legend BOB DYLAN played in Manchester at The Free Trade Hall. At one point during Like A Rolling Stone
a member of the audience shouted out Judas at Dylan because he didn’t like (and many
with him) that Dylan played half of the concert electric guitar, backed by Americana
rockers The Band.
He was branded a traitor for moving from acoustic folk to rock ‘n’ roll.
Dylan replied with “I don‘t believe you” and “You’re a liar“, then turned
around and instructed The Band to ‘Play loud’.
Here’s that historic performance.
