Over the past 25 years, Bob Dylan has played more than 2,500 concerts of his craggily voiced classics on what has anecdotally been dubbed a Never Ending Tour. Tonight, the septuagenarian’s journey continues for the Americanarama Festival of Music, a fitting title for Dylan, as the last 50 years have seen him traverse mostly American-born styles like country, blues, gospel, and, of course, folk and rock. Joining him at Jones Beach are three artists who each owe some debt to Dylan’s Americana: experimental indie-folk sextet Wilco, alt-rocker Beck, and the young ’un of the group, 32-year-old roots rocker Ryan Bingham. It’s a diverse enough cast of characters to make for a good Dylan song.
