Watch the trailer for Bob Dylan movie 'Trouble No More'
The Bob Dylan movie, 'Trouble No More' is set for release on February 26.
The film focuses on one of his notorious gospel-years tours which ran from November 1979 to May 1980. The tour consisted of 79 performances, based around his 1979 album Slow Train Coming.
He wrote the songs after becoming a committed Christian and began studying the Bible.
Long term Bob Dylan fans were upset that he didn't play any of his older material and many walked out on shows.
Some of those fans reactions are included in Trouble No More, which also features actor Michael Shannon delivering “sermons” as The Preacher.
The live concert footage is taken from Dylan’s appearances in Toronto and Buffalo during the final weeks of the tour.
The movie premiered at the New York Film Festival last year.
When asked why he stopped performing his older songs, he said: “I truly had a born-again experience, if you want to call it that. It's an overused term, but it's something that people can relate to. … I always knew there was a God or a creator of the universe and a creator of the mountains and the sea and all that kind of thing, but I wasn't conscious of Jesus and what that had to do with the supreme creator.”
