From Rolling Stone:
In January of 1998 New York music fans faced a tough choice: Bob Dylan or the Rolling Stones? Both were doing a run of shows at Madison Square Garden over the exact same nights: Dylan was in the theater and the Stones were in the arena. In honor of Dylan, the Stones performed “Like A Rolling Stone” every single night. At one point their setlist said “with Bob Dylan,” but he never showed.
Three months later, fans in South America were in a much easier position. The Stones came down for a stadium tour, with Dylan as their opening act. This time around, Dylan didn’t stand them up.
