BOB DYLAN TAPS SUSAN TEDESCHI FOR SHOW OPENER ON EAST COAST DATE

BOSTON, Mass. -- When the call came in that Bob Dylan was requesting Susan Tedeschi to open tonight's show in Newark, Del., she was excited beyond words. Raised by parents who were folk enthusiasts of the highest order, Susan had heard all of Dylan's '60s albums as she was growing up.

"I was weaned on Dylan. It's amazing to be honored like this, being asked to open for one of my favorite songwriters of all time -- and nearly everybody's favorite songwriter, she says." "I saw him perform recently and he's sounding great -- animated, passionate, mixing up phrases... really exciting."

It was at Dylan's recent co-bill concert at Temple University in Philadelphia with Phil Lesh & Friends that Susan got to hear him -- and, more importantly, that Dylan got to hear her.

Susan was visiting her friend Derek Trucks from the Allman Brothers on the road, and the two -- along with Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule -- were asked to sit in with Phil Lesh & Friends during Lesh's co-bill with Dylan. Reportedly Dylan, who was onstage at the time, heard Susan sing and immediately requested through his representatives that Susan open his Newark date, just a few nights later.

Susan Tedeschi's "Just Won't Burn" album, released close to two years ago on (and worked aggressively ever since by) Tone-Cool/Island Def Jam Records, has sold nearly 400,000 units. The album has garnered much rock and triple-a radio airplay, and has led to appearances on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien, "VH1's "Concert Of the Century for Save The Music," NPR's "Weekend All Things Considered," and more. Billboard magazine's Timothy White has called her the most important artist to emerge in 1999. She has toured this year with John Mellencamp, B.B. King, the Allman Brothers and Buddy Guy, as well as on Lillith Faire dates and Farm Aid.
