American music legend Bob Dylan skips the OC Fair this year in favor of doing things his way—his Americanarama Festival of Music, headlined and curated by Dylan, is currently traveling the country, making a stop at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. For this tour, Dylan hand-picked two of our favorite creative, soulful, purely American rock bands to accompany him: Wilco and My Morning Jacket, plus some special guests along the way (Ryan Bingham is scheduled to play at this Irvine show). Come hear iconic songs like "Blowin' in the Wind" and "Mr. Tambourine Man" sung/spoken live—but don't expect Dylan to dance, converse or do much interacting with the audience. Let's get one thing straight: he's not here to see you, you're here to see him.
