He will sing at Loretta Grounds of the university in front of around 10,000 fans in a live show called “Bob Dylan commemorates Trinh Cong Son”. Trinh Cong Son, who wrote over 500 songs during his lifetime for Vietnam’s music, died in 2001. He was considered the Bob Dylan of Vietnam for his moving antiwar songs in the 1960s and 70s.

Bob Dylan has been a major figure in music for five decades with his songs such as Blowin’ in the Wind and The Times They Are A Changin’ which became the anthems for the US civil rights and antiwar movements. The 70-year-old artist Bob Dylan has won many Grammy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, and many others throughout his career.
