Dylan opens his 1965 tour of England in Sheffield

50 Years Ago today Bob Dylan played the first show of his 1965 England tour at the Sheffield City Hall. Dylan stuck with largely the same setlist as he had performed on his North American tour in early 1965.

The setlist for the show included 6 songs from his latest album Bringing It All Back Home. A notable emission however was Dylan's latest hit single “Subterranean Homesick Blues", which had reached the top 10 singles chart in the UK.

Sheffield City Hall - 30th April 1965 Setlist:

The Times They Are a-Changin'

To Ramona

Gates of Eden

If You Gotta Go, Go Now (or Else You Got to Stay All Night)

It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)

Love Minus Zero/No Limit

Mr. Tambourine Man

Talkin' World War III Blues

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

With God on Our Side

She Belongs to Me

It Ain't Me Babe

The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll

All I Really Want to Do

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue
