IRISH band The Frames have been wowing audiences in Australia and New Zealand after being personally invited to open for legendary singer Bob Dylan on his tour. The rockers, who hail from Dublin, have been supporting Dylan on the Australian leg of his tour and have impressed fans across the board. One concertgoer said: â€œYoung Irish band The Frames did a fine job of supporting the big man. â€œYes, they were overawed by the prospect but this five-piece won many friends with their upfront rocking soundâ€. Dylan is a huge fan of the band and lead singer Glen Hansard is set to appear in the upcoming Bob Dylan movie I’m Not There. The film, directed by Todd Haynes (Velvet Goldmine), is about the life of Bob Dylan, with different characters playing Dylan’s various aspects of life and work. Hansard is currently starring in the Irish musical film Once with Czech musician Marketa Irglova. The pair will appear on the soundtrack for the Dylan biopic with the brand new song, Iâ€™m Not There, which was recently recorded in Ireland by band mate Rob Bochnik.
