Record in May in Santa Monica, “Shadow Kingdom” will arrive in two weeks on VEEP. Here is the press release:

“On Sunday, July 18, at 2pm PT, Veeps will present Bob Dylan in an exclusive concert performance. Shadow Kingdom will showcase the artist in an intimate setting as he presents renditions of songs from his extensive and renowned body of work created especially for this event. Tickets are $25 and access to this concert event will remain for 48 hours after the initial airing.

Shadow Kingdom will mark the artist’s first concert performance since December 2019, after his planned tours were cancelled due to the global pandemic, along with those of virtually every other touring artist. It will also be Dylan’s first performance since the release of his universally acclaimed album, Rough And Rowdy Ways, which debuted in the Top Ten in 16 countries, and was the artist’s 18th studio album to debut in the U.S. Top 10. Rough And Rowdy Ways also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart.

“It’s an incredible honor and a high point for us all at Veeps to have the opportunity to be working with Bob Dylan, and to be a part of what is sure to be a truly special and historic performance, not only as professionals, but as music fans too,” said Joel Madden, co-founder of Veeps.

Dylan dubs it his first foray into live for television since MTV Unplugged 30 years ago, and while all that makes this exciting, the news that Dylan will be delving deep into his backpages, confirmed by what sounds like a terrific take on one of his great songs, from 1971, “Watching The River Flow” and the tagline “The Early Songs Of Bob Dylan, though, just to start a ruckus, ten years into his career isn’t definitively early!

Certainly, if the 30 seconds we’ve seen and heard (above) is anything to go by, it will be an absolute triumph.
