Bob Dylan - Masters Of War (Woodstock 24 Aug.1994)


Woodstock '94 was a music festival organized to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival of 1969. It was promoted as "2 More Days of Peace and Music." The poster used to promote the first concert was revised to feature two birds perched on a guitar neck, instead of the original one.
The 1994 concert was scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 13 and 14,[1] with a third day (Friday, August 12) added later. The weather was rainy that weekend, and by Saturday much of the field had turned into mud.
But the highlight of the festival was the performance by Bob Dylan, who’d turned down an invitation to appear 25 years before. Promoters actually planned to stage the 1969 concert on the Winston Farm site with the hope that Dylan, who lived nearby, would perform. Dylan declined and when the owner of the land backed out, the concert was moved to Bethel, N.Y.

                      Masters Of War

From the beginning, the promoters wanted Bob Dylan to play Woodstock. The reason they even wanted the festival to be held in Woodstock in 1969 was to lure Dylan, a local, to play the festival. Unfortunately, at the time Dylan was recovering from a motorcycle accident and trying to live a quiet life. When Woodstock ’94 was set to take place, Dylan was coming off of a string of less-than-stellar albums and his recording contract was up for renewal. He agreed to play and performed a set that helped reignite his career.
