Prince Harry and his new bride will be namechecked in a show at Buxton Opera House on Saturday.
The Bob Dylan Story will celebrate the marriage of Harry and Meghan in Windsor by dedicating the classic Dylan track I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight to the newly-weds.
Said Bill Lennon, who plays Dylan: “It’s a catchy song with heartfelt sentiments and it seems fitting to make our own contribution to the nation’s good wishes for the couple’s future.”

The Bob Dylan Story recreates the living legend’s classic hits, from The Times They Are A-Changin’, Blowin’ In The Wind and Mr Tambourine Man through to Like A Rolling Stone, Subterranean Homesick Blues, Lay Lady Lay, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door and many more, while telling some of the fascinating tales behind them.
Supported by a top backing band, and using carefully-selected visual projections, the show takes its audience back to the 1960s, the era of Vietnam, anti-war and civil rights protests, and of course, timeless music spearheaded by the likes of the recent Nobel prize winner, as he plotted his journey from revered protest singer to provocative rock n roll star to virtual recluse and back again, all in the space of a few short years.
Added Bill: “Funnily enough, we made our debut appearance in Windsor in 2016 and have since been touring the length and breadth of the UK – and we’ll be back there the night after our appearance at Buxton Opera House. The show has gone from strength to strength with rave reviews wherever we go. The fact that we are returning on this particular weekend is the icing on the wedding cake!”
