On October 16, 1992, a jaw-dropping lineup of stars joined Bob Dylan at New York City's Madison Square Garden to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the folk-rock legend's self-titled debut album.  Now, deluxe expanded reissues of the album and video documenting the historic concert are set to hit stores on March 4.  Bob Dylan: The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration -- Deluxe Edition will be sold in three configurations -- as a two-CD set, a two-DVD collection and a Blu-ray disc.

Among the many famous artists who participated in the event were George Harrison , Eric Clapton , Stevie Wonder , Neil Young , Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers , Johnny Cash , Willie Nelson , Ronnie Wood , The O'Jays , Lou Reed , John Mellencamp , Roger McGuinn , The Band , Richie Havens , Johnny Winter , Chrissie Hynde and Kris Kristofferson .  The four-hour marathon performance, which Young dubbed "Bobfest," featured the various stars singing a diverse selection of tunes from Dylan's catalog, from classic hits to obscure gems.

Among the evening's many highlights was a rendition of "My Back Pages" that saw Dylan, Harrison, Clapton, Young, Petty and McGuinn all performing together and a finale that featured the concert's entire cast singing "I Shall Be Released."  The show also boasted an impressive house band that included three members of Booker T. and the M.G.'s , guitarist G.E. Smith and renowned session drummers Jim Keltner and Anton Fig .

The DVD set and Blu-ray will feature 40 minutes of previously unreleased bonuses footage, including rehearsal performances, behind-the-scenes clips and interviews.  The CD package will offer two unreleased songs recorded during the show's sound check, Clapton's rendition of "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" and Sinead O'Connor 's performance of "I Believe in You."
