Description

Original color 5.5 x 10 flyer for Bob Dylan & The Band at the Isle of Wight Festival of Music on August 30 and 31, 1969, which shows three small images of The Band above a larger image of Bob Dylan as he’s pictured on the cover of his Nashville Skyline album. The flyer also lists the acts for the festival’s two days: The Who, Moody Blues, Joe Cocker, Free, King Crimson, The Band, Richie Havens, and more. In very good condition, with overall creasing, several horizontal folds, and a few small stains. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. After spending much of the previous three years in semi-retirement following his motorcycle accident, this festival marked Dylan's great return to the spotlight. Backed by The Band, he performed 17 of his hits, including 'Maggie's Farm,' 'It Ain't Me, Babe,' 'Mr. Tambourine Man,' 'Highway 61 Revisited,' and 'Like a Rolling Stone.'
