Legendary musician and cultural icon Bob Dylan will perform at the Bowling Green State University’s Stroh Center on April 21.  
The Los Angeles-based folk-rock band Dawes opens the show at 6:30 p.m. Dylan takes the stage at 8 p.m.
Tickets go on sale March 8 at 10 a.m. at the Stroh Center box office and at ticketmaster.com. VIP tickets are $125 and are available exclusively through the Red Cross at (419) 329-2573. Student tickets are $25 and available with a student ID at the Stroh Center box office. General admission tickets will also be offered, but the price has yet to be determined.
All proceeds from Tangled up in RED: An Evening with Bob Dylan will benefit the programs and services of the American Red Cross Northwest Ohio Region including disaster preparedness, disaster relief and recovery assistance, support for military members and their families, health and safety training.
Amanda Aldrich said that one of the music legend’s homes was damaged in Hurricane Sandy. “He has a soft spot for the Red Cross.”
Aldrich later added: “This is a great opportunity to support our local efforts.”
The Red Cross worked with officials at the Stroh to have a local show as part of Dylan’s tour of college campuses. The BGSU show is the last stop on an April swing that takes him to New England before a string of Midwest dates.
In May of 2012, Dylan was the recipient of the country’s highest civilian honor The Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Dylan, known for his era-defining work including “The Times They Are A-Changing,”  “Blowin’ In the Wind” and “Like A Rolling Stone” released his 35th studio album, the critically-acclaimed “Tempest” last fall.
“Tempest” builds upon a run of success in recent years that has included a string of platinum-selling records, a New York Times best-selling autobiography, multiple Grammy awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe award, and a Kennedy Center Honor.
