Peace Sunday, Pasadena, Ca 6 June1982


On June 6 1982, Bob Dylan gave his only live performance of the year. At the time he was between projects (1981's Shot Of Love and 1983's Infidels), and had not appeared on stage since the previous November.

The concert was called "Peace Sunday: We Have A Dream", a six-hour concert for nuclear disarmament, and it took place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The acts that day included speakers Ed Asner, Jesse Jackson, Cesar Chavez, with music by Stevie Wonder, Joan Baez, Jackson Browne, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Dan Fogelberg, Gary U.S. Bonds and Bonnie Raitt. Dylan was a surprise guest during Joan Baez's set.
