With 1992, came the 30th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s first recorded release and, as only an artist influential and integral as Dylan could inspire, a jaw-dropping cast of performers came together at New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the icon and his music.

Colloquially referred to as Bobfest, the all-star affair welcomed contemporary artists of the time, like Pearl Jam and Tracy Chapman; as well as Dylan and his peers – including Neil Young, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, The Band, Kris Kristofferson, Lou Reed, John Mellencamp and more! – to celebrate his catalogue of classic hits. 

Watch below as Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Neil Young, Tom Petty and more join forces to sing “My Back Pages” back in 1992 – it might just be the most potent gathering of talent we’ve ever seen!

Highlights from the evening also included Pearl Jam’s cover of “Masters of War,” Lou Reed’s version of “Foot of Pride” and an emotional rendition of “Like A Rolling Stone” from John Mellencamp. But, without doubt, the peak of the performance came when Dylan invited many of the artists back on stage for the rousing finale!
