In shared stages 

Bob Dylan has been shooting holes through the hearts of those irksome "The Next Bob Dylan" lists since the release of 1997's Time Out of Mind, a smoked-out, Daniel Lanois affair of forsaken love and a wandering man's blues told by a poet not reviving a legacy, but reinventing it. Since then, he followed suit with 2001's gorgeous and flamboyant "Love & Theft" and with every subsequent tour, updating the standbys of his catalogue into barely recognizable, instantly attractive gems all over again. He seems to be in rare form this trip, too, reaching back for standards from "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "The Times They Are a Changin'" to "Masters of War" and "To Ramona," along with a batch of relative rarities involving proper nouns like "Hattie Carroll," "Lenny Bruce," "Spanish Leather" and "Hollis Brown." Willie Nelson--another point along Lanois' decade-long string of genius--joins Dylan for his second tour of America's minor league ballparks. Aussie & British hybrids of The Greencards open. Show starts at 6:30 p.m. in Zebulon's Five County Stadium. General Admission tickets are $49.50.
