At evening's end, the man of honor himself appeared on stage and gracefully brought it all back home again.

Available for the first time in High ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Dylan wanted to go somewhere and sing traditional songs rather than do a big concert. So for the after-party, he and many of the artists went to Tommy Makem's Irish Pavilion club on E 57th Street and sang Irish songs with the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, who had performed at the 30th Anniversary concert by Dylan's request.

One of the greatest concert films.

16 October 1992, Madison Square Garden, New York. A concert to celebrate Bob Dylan's 30 years in the music industry. The list of performers, all performing Dylan songs, is amazing: Dylan himself, John Cougar Mallencamp, Kris Kristofferson (who was also MC), Stevie Wonder, Lou Reed, Eddie Vedder & Mike McCready from Pearl Jam, Tracy Chapman, Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash, Willie Nelson, Johnny Winter, Ron Wood, Richie Havens, Neil Young, Chrissie Hynde, Eric Clapton, The Band, George Harrison, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Roger McGuinn. Supported by Booker T and the MGs.

Great versions of great songs, sung by phenomenal artists.

Brilliant.
