Bob Dylan Performs "The Weight" With Jim James, Jeff Tweedy
Throughout the AmericanaramA tour, Bob Dylan has been joined a handful of times by Jim James and Jeff Tweedy for covers of iconic songs like “Twelve Gates to the City.”
Last night in Virginia Beach, fans were treated to an all-star rendition of “The Weight”—by Dylan’s old crew The Band—that made for an unforgettable moment for those in attendance.
Although we’ve recently seen slews of high profile covers of “The Weight” since Levon Helm’s passing, few have packed as much punch as last night’s performance. Dylan’s massive tour still has a few stops left which may hold even more momentous covers, so be sure to stay on the lookout.
