Bob Dylan Performs in China

The times have certainly changed: Bob Dylan performed before a crowd of 6,000 people in authoritarian China on Wednesday, just days after the Chinese government arrested famous artist Ai Wei Wei. The Chinese government reviewed and approved Dylan’s set list before the performance. Tickets sold for upwards of $50—a big sum in China. Separately, Chinese authorities announced Thursday that they are investigating Ai Wei Wei for “economic crimes.”
