Don’t miss Bob Dylan in Madrid on July 6th
Bob Dylan is coming to Spain. Currently immersed in a tour which has taken him all over the United States and Europe, this legendary musician is performing in Madrid on July 6th. At this concert he is going to present his latest album Shadows in the Night: ten cover versions of songs which originally belonged to Frank Sinatra, with Dylan’s own particular imprint on each of them. It’s an exercise of creativity where a sepulchral undertone revolves around ten lesser known songs of the singer-songwriter known as “The Voice”. It is also the first recorded material of Dylan in three years. Do you need any more reasons to organise a quick getaway and find a hotel in the centre of Madrid to see this living legend of music?
A show you wouldn’t want to miss
It’s an incredible opportunity for both long-time and more recent followers of Bob Dylan. 15,000 people will be able to enjoy his show at the Barclaycard Center (formerly known as Palacio de los Deportes, at Felipe the 2nd avenue) on Monday July 6th. Bob Dylan, now aged 73, continues to surprise and give powerful performances just like in the old days. This multifaceted artist keeps up with a frenetic rhythm of around one hundred shows per year, while writing, painting and exhibiting fantastic welded iron gates in art galleries. Such versatility undoubtedly dissipates any worry of him not being able to deliver on stage, quite the contrary: you can be certain his power will reverberate throughout his entire performance.
It won’t take you long to organise your journey. To choose the appropriate means of transport depends on where you reside, but the options are many: you can travel to Madrid by AVE (high-speed train), by plane, or by car (including the possibility of ridesharing platforms like Blabla Car). You can always book a room in a hotel in the centre of Madrid with Sidorme, if you’re looking for comfort and an unbeatable location from where you can travel to the venue. Enjoy the show of one of the most representative icons in the history of music of the second half of the twentieth century. Start packing your suitcase now!
Moreover, this concert could be the perfect surprise to give to a friend, your partner or a family member. There’s always someone who would absolutely love to see this brilliant artist live, in the company of thousands of other fans.

Last time Bob Dylan visited Spain was in 2012. During that year he made a small tour throughout the country visiting cities like Bilbao, Benicàssim or Girona. This time he will play six concerts, but only Madrid has the honour of welcoming Los Lobos as the opening act, who are an American band of Mexican descent. It’s the cherry on top in case you were still hesitating whether you should book a hotel in the centre of Madrid and enjoy Bob Dylan’s show in the capital city of Spain.
Los Lobos will play their particular mixture of rock, tex-mex and alternative country. The combination of Dylan and Los Lobos has already been previously tested on the singer-songwriter’s album called Tempest (2012). If you don’t want to miss seeing them live, stay in our hotel in the centre of Madrid and enjoy the best music.
