Bob Dylan started a movement. He was the man who brought folk to the major rock and roll scene in the American 1960’s, and gave other singer songwriter artists the opportunity to flourish in popularity. Dylan not only started the major Folk movement, but he also brought in an entire generation of Hippies who wanted social change; stated in his iconic song Times They Are A Changin’. U2 payed tribute to the folk star on Tuesday May 24th, for his birthday.

During their show at The Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah, U2 played a rarely performed track from Dylan’s 1998 album Rattle and Rum titled “Love Rescue Me.” Later on in their show, the rockers changed up the lyrics of their famous song “Where the Streets Have No Name” to include extracts from famous Dylan songs like “The Times They Are a Changin” and “Blowin’ In the Wind.”

Even though U2 could never be considered to have had the same level of effect that Bob Dylan had on social change, it’s still pleasant to see such a popular band dedicating their music to a man who did so much to change the world. Happy belated birthday Bob! Here’s a song you all might know:
