Bob Dylan thrills at London Feis concert

Great deals on musical instruments

Bob Dylan performed a set full of his classic tracks at his only UK concert of 2011 on Saturday (18.06.11).

The 70-year-old music legend only spoke to the audience at the London Feis event to introduce his band during the encore, but it didn't diminish the crowd's enjoyment of a set including favourites such as 'Highway 61 Revisited', 'A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall' and 'Like a Rolling Stone' - which inspired a mass sing-along.

Bob - who headlined a bill in the city's Finsbury Park which featured Irish acts including The Cranberries, Christy Moore, Shane McGowan and The Undertones - appeared to be enjoying himself as he moved between the keyboard, harmonica and guitar and even raised a smile during 'Ballad of a Thin Man'.

Danny O' Reilly - the son of Irish singer Mary Black and frontman of The Coronas, who kicked off proceedings on the main stage, revealed they were thrilled to be on the same bill as the legendary singer.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's such an honour to be asked to play the Feis and to be on the same bill as Bob Dylan is just incredible. We couldn't turn down this opportunity even though we're not playing too many gigs this summer because we're working on our new album."

The Feis - taking over from the annual Fleadh that ran for 14 years at Finsbury Park between 1990 and 2004 - closed its 21st anniversary celebrations last night (19.06.11) with a headlining set from Van Morrison after performances from Thin Lizzy, Horslips, The Hothouse Flowers and Paul Brady.

'Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking'

'It's All Over Now Baby, Baby Blue'
