Bob Dyaln poster adorns concert hall in Beijing
Chinese soldiers take their positions in front of Beijing's iconic Worker's Gymnasium, which will host Bob Dylan's first-ever concert in China, on April 6, 2011. Last year Chinese authorities refused to allow the legendary protest singer Bob Dylan to play concerts inside China. Chinese censors were wary of his politically charged lyrics, which inspired a generation of Americans in the 1960s and '70s to question authority in a way that is forbidden in China. Officials said the singer would have to strictly abide by an agreed playlist. UPI/Stephen Shaver
