Cat Power announced the release of her live album, Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert, on Nov. 10, where she recreates a song-for-song rendition of Bob Dylan’s iconic performance at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in May 1966. The set made history when Dylan switched from acoustic to electric halfway through.
With the new live album, Cat Power will also be performing the songs at Los Angeles’ Troubadour on Nov. 6 and 7.
Tickets for Cat Power’s upcoming shows at the Troubadour are now on sale. Fans can also listen to her rendition of “She Belongs to Me” and “Ballad of a Thin Man.” The tracks were recorded last November at Royal Albert Hall.
“It was something impulsive,” Cat Power says of recording the project, with a fan calling out “Judas!” in the lead-up to “Ballad of a Thin Man.” :I wasn’t expecting the audience to recreate their part of the original show as well, but then I wanted to set the record straight — in a way, Dylan is a deity to all of us who write songs.”
Over the course of 153 headlining shows reported to Pollstar’s Boxoffice since 1999, Cat Power has sold 156,068 tickets grossing $4.9 million.
Cat Power is represented by WME.
