Every picture tells a story, they say, but not the full story. For that, you usually have to dig a little deeper. Here are pictures of tickets to three Dylan concerts from the past eight years. The tickets are cool, how does one learn what the band played, how the shows went?

That’s where sites like and come in handy. The former site scrapes together all Bob stories and serves them up daily, a mashup of each day’s Dylan-related news and information. The latter provides concert information including where the concerts took place, setlists and reviews by people who were there. You can also see where Bob Dylan and his band will be in the months ahead.

Both sites are much more than that, though. Well worth a deeper dive for any avid fan. Dig it.

Each concert is an event. Every day in the Never Ending Tour is a story. Check out the price of the Beijing ticket. How cool is that?
