BEIJING, April 13 (Xinhuanet) -- After nearly five decades of singing about a war that continues to haunt a generation of Americans, legendary performer Bob Dylan finally got his chance to see Vietnam at peace. The American folk singer and songwriter gave a special concert Sunday in Ho Chi Minh City.
69-year old Dylan, jammed on stage in a black jacket, purple shirt and white hat in the warm evening air, singing favorites such as "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall" and "Highway 61 Revisited." Dylan's music during that tumultuous era helped define a generation, touching thousands of young people who took to the streets demanding that Washington stop the war in Vietnam.
The concert's promoter has said that about half of the 8-thousand seats at Ho Chi Minh City's RMIT University were sold to a mix of young and old fans.
