Watch Bob Dylan’s Live ‘Hard Rain’ from Rolling Thunder Revue Movie
Bob Dylan can be seen performing “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall” during his 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour in a clip from the upcoming movie about the road trip.
Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese is launched via Netflix on June 12 after a limited theater release on June 11.
You can watch the “Hard Rain” performance below:
In a recently-released trailer, Dylan described the tour as a “catastrophe,” adding: “It wasn’t a success, not if you measure success in terms of profit.” Netflix said the film “captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975, and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed that fall.” The statement continued: “This performance of ‘Hard Rain’ is a look at a piece of essential American folklore, never before seen and beautifully restored. Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese creates a one-of-a-kind movie experience: part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream. Featuring Joan Baez, Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter, Sam Shepard, Allen Ginsberg, and Bob Dylan giving his first on-camera interview in over a decade. The film goes beyond mere reclamation of Dylan’s extraordinary music – it’s a roadmap into the wild country of artistic self-reinvention.”
It’s the second time Dylan and Scorcese have worked together, following their award-winning movie No Direction Home in 2005. A 14-disc CD box set from the Rolling Thunder Revue tour is released on June 7.
