Dylan Doesn't Refer To Nobel Win During Concert

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Bob Dylan did not mention his winning the Nobel Prize in literature, during a concert in Las Vegas Thursday night.

His 90-minute performance included several well-known songs, with the 1960's anthem "Blowin' in the Wind" drawing an especially enthusiastic response.

But the star focused solely on the business of making music and he did not bring up the coveted award.

Though he rarely gives interviews, there had been some thought that Dylan would say something while on stage about the literature honor, the first given to a musician in the Nobel's 115-year history.

A representative said earlier in the day that Dylan had no immediate comment.
