Cat Power Announces 2024 Concert at Carnegie Hall to Celebrate Her Live Bob Dylan Tribute Album

Cat Power will celebrate her upcoming live Bob Dylan tribute album, Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert, with a special show scheduled at New York’s historic Carnegie Hall next Valentine’s Day—February 14, 2024.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, October 27, at 11 a.m. ET at The Carnegie Hall event will follow four previously announced concerts marking the album’s release that will take place on November 6 and 7 at the famed Troubadour in West Hollywood, California, on November 8 at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles, and on December 2 at the Crosstown Theater in Memphis, Tennessee.

As previously reported, Cat Power Sings Dylan will be released on November 10. The album documents a concert that the veteran singer/songwriter, also known as Chan Marshall, played on November 5, 2022, at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Her performance replicated Dylan’s iconic May 17, 1966, performance at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, U.K., which was mistakenly labeled on an archival bootleg recording at the time as taking place at the Royal Albert Hall.

Cat Power recreated Dylan’s entire 1966 set, song for song, and in keeping with the original show’s format, she played the first half of her set acoustic before being joined by a full electric band for the second half. At his 1966 concert when he switched to electric, his backing group was The Hawks—who went on to become The Band.

Dylan’s 1966 Manchester show was officially released as the fourth volume of his Bootleg Series and subtitled as the “Royal Albert Hall” concert. The performance took place several months after Dylan went electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. At the Manchester concert, a fan famously yelled “Judas” in apparent disdain of the folk legend playing with electric backing.

Coinciding with the announcement of the Carnegie Hall concert, two songs from Cat Power Sings Dylan have been made available via digital outlets—her renditions of “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “Like a Rolling Stone.” These follow two other tunes from the album that were previously released as advanced digital tracks—“She Belongs to Me” and “Ballad of a Thin Man.”
