Touring band: Bucky Baxter (pedal/lap-steel guitar/mandolin); Tony Garnier (bass); John Jackson (guitar); Winston Watson (drums).
Five tours, in Asia, US and Europe and, in between, the Great Music Experience in Nara, Japan, and the MTV Unplugged recording.
In the first leg Dylan is touring in Asia. First in Japan, after that for the first time in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. The setlists (12 or 13 songs plus 2 encores) are whole year through rather unchanged, with Jokerman -not played since 1984- as standard opener and Masters of War as the acoustic highlight.

1994-05-20/22Nara, Japan Tadaiji TempleThe Great Experience1CDrLiberated bootleg LB-0558/SbdAThe Great Music Experience was a concert, held over three nights, starring Japanese and international musicians staged at the eighth century Buddhist temple of Todai-ji and was partly backed by UNESCO. Dylan performed the same three songs each day: A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, I Shall Be Released and Ring Them Bells. He was backed by the New Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and a backing group with Jim Keltner on drums and Ray Cooper on percussion. Dylan's performance was stunning. Each concert ended with I Shall Be Released (again) with all the participating artists on stage. The last day was broadcast live on radio and TV in over 50 countries.
