American and legendary folk singer Bob Dylan performed his very first Vietnam gig last Sunday.
Dylan whose songs became the anti-Vietnam war anthems of the 1960s during the Vietnam war played in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon.
The 69 year-old musician jammed on stage with his guitar, harmonica and keyboard and performed hits including A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall and Highway 61 Revisited.
Big-name concerts are said to be still rare in the Communist country of Vietnam. The government maintains a strict control of what is said in public and Dylan's song list had to be approved in advance although Rod Quinton, the concert's promoter, stated that there were no restrictions imposed.
Dylan also performed in Shanghai (China) on Friday after his debut show in Beijing last Wednesday.
