    Last year, Bob Dylan was scheduled to perform in China but his concerts were canceled because of the country's Ministry of Culture. Now, the Ministry has approved a pair of shows that will take place in April. According to the AFP, the 69-year-old singer will play Beijing on April 6th and Shanghai on April 8th. The shows are landmark events, as they will be the folk singer's first-ever shows in the country. Dylan's newly confirmed Chinese gigs also celebrate another historic moment of his career: his 50th year as a performer.
