Kris Kristofferson - Introduction lyrics

What a night. Welcome to Madison Square Garden. I'm Kris Kristofferson, and this is Bob Dylan's night.

On March 19, 1962, Columbia records released the first album by a new artist, Bob Dylan. Now 30 years, 38 albums, and over 500 songs later, Bob Dylan's universally recognized as one of the most powerful creative artists of our time.

Back stage we've one of the greatest collections of performing artists ever assembled, and they're all here for one reason, to pay tribute to Bob Dylan through his own songs. Hang onto that skirt!
