A new American tour starting 13th October has been announced on Bob Dylan’s website. The first of 21 shows is going to take place at Valley Center, California, and the month-long tour is scheduled to end in Boston, Massachusetts on 16th November.
Tickets for all of the concerts are going on sale on Friday 15th September, with a pre-sale available for American Express cardholders from Wednesday 13th. Mavis Staples has been confirmed as the opening act for the final 19 concerts, starting in Salt Lake City, Utah on 17th October.
The latest leg of Dylan’s so-called “Never Ending Tour” finished at the end of July in Canada, and there are no signs that the 76-year-old is going to get tired of being on the road anytime soon. The famous tour has certainly not failed to live up to its name: since its start in 1988, there hasn’t been a single year when the singer-songwriter didn’t perform live. The 2000th show took place on 16th October 2007 in Dayton, Ohio. After countless line-up changes throughout the years, Dylan’s current tourinbg band consists of lead guitarist Charlie Sexton, bassist Tony Garnier, rhythm guitarist Stu Kimball, drummer George Receli and multi-instrumentalist Donnie Herron.
In addition to his perpetual touring schedule, Dylan has also released three studio albums over the past three years, the latest one being ‘Triplicate’, which came out in March this year and features cover versions of classic American songs. His new concert documentary, ‘Trouble No More’ is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival in a couple of weeks’ time. The film includes never-before-seen footage from the 1979/1980 North American tour.
