Bob, Tom and Stevie Headed to Frankston
“Jeff Jenkins not only sounds like ‘His Bobness’, but he understands him, even inhabits him.”
Glenn A. Baker
Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks made history when they joined forces for one of the greatest concerts of all time – the True Confessions Tour in 1986. This tour has been an abiding inspiration to musician Jeff Jenkins, and this April he brings that remarkable show back to life at the Frankston Arts Centre.
Jeff has joined forces with Sarah Highgate (Nicks) to re-create the Bob, Tom and Stevie tour de force. “Thirty two years on and people still refer to the True Confessions Tour as one of the most remarkable gigs they’ve ever been to. It holds legendary status,” says show creator, Jeff. “Wanting to build a new show we asked ourselves, how do we top the success we’ve had with DYLANesque the Bob Dylan Story? And the answer was obvious – you add another rock legend, or two, into the mix.”
Audiences can re-live that incredible line up at True Confessions Revisited and rock out to: Running Down a Dream, American Girl, Don’t Come Around Here No More, The Waiting, Refugee, Like a Rolling Stone, All Along the Watchtower, Hard Rain, Tombstone Blues, House of the Rising Sun & many other classic Dylan / Petty hits.
It was February 1986; Tyson was the heavyweight champ, Reagan was president, but the real action was at Kooyong – the night Tom Petty supported Bob Dylan.
Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre, Dylanesque and Frankston Music Festival True Confessions Revisited is handpicked to be in the FAC 2019 Season.
