[photogallerylink id=29729 align=left]For the first time ever, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] will perform in Vietnam while on tour in Asia next month. As part of the permission granted to Dylan by China to perform, there are certain rules which must be followed.

Dylan, whose music is known to promote the anti-Vietnam war movement in the 60s, was told by the Chinese Ministry of Culture that he must “stick to the program.”

The April 10th show will be taking place at RMIT University stadium in Ho Chi Minh City, which holds 8,000 people and will cost $42.65 per ticket, which will be out of reach for many residents since the price is slightly over the minimum monthly wage.

Officials are hoping to introduce Dylan to a brand new generation of music lovers, despite the price of the tickets.  General manager of the show’s promoters, Saigon Sound System, Rod Quinton told Contactmusic, “We are bringing him here because Bob Dylan is a very important legend of music and we think it’s important that Vietnamese people, particularly the younger generation, are exposed to his legacy and what he’s done for music.”
