Old Crow Medicine Show will headline Denver's Paramount Theatre in May to perform Bob Dylan's album Blonde on Blonde in its entirety. The concert will support the release of the band's album, Fifty Years of Blonde on Blonde.

“Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee," said Old Crow lead singer Ketch Secor in a statement. "Time rolls on slowly around here, like flotsam and jetsam in the muddy Cumberland River. But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning. Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time-bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats.

“By deciding to record his newly found rock ’n’ roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of country music wide open; so wide, in fact, that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak its banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger,” added Secor.

Old Crow Medicine Show is best known for its iconic roots song "Wagon Wheel."
The concert at the Paramount Theatre takes place Sunday, May 14. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 24, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at, 303-893-8497 or at Altitude Ticket kiosks inside Colorado Dick's Sporting Goods stores.
