Bob Dylan Announces Spring Tour Dates, Including A Stop At Cornell
Bob Dylan has announced the first 13 dates of his 2013 itinerary. Dylan will kick off his spring tour in upstate New York at SUNY Buffalo Alumni Arena and, as of now, wind things down on on April 21st at Ohio's Bowling Green State University. The trek, which will likely be extended, will take in stops primarily in secondary markets.
In celebration of "Record Store Day" on April 20th, Dylan will release a seven-inch vinyl single featuring a demo of "Wigwam" -- the tune which was the single off his 1970 Self Portrait album, backed with an previously unreleased cover of folk singer Eric Anderson's Thirsty Boots."' Both songs will be featured on the upcoming Bootleg Series Vol. 10 collection, which will comprise the 1969 to 1973 era, touching upon such middle era Dylan classics as Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait, New Morning, the acoustic Greatest Hits Vol. 2 sessions, and the soundtrack for Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid. No release date for Bootleg Series Vol. 1 has been announced.
A while back Bob Dylan discussed his fans adulation with the BBC and explained that his desire to perform has very little to do with filling some type of void in his personal life: "I got enough love around me, y'know? so I don't need no people's love. I don't need to go out and play to a crowd of 20, 30, 50,000 people for their love. Some performers have to, y'know? But I don't. I got enough love just in my immediate surroundings, so. . . It accounts for why a lot of entertainers do what they do, because they want the love of another group of people. And I don't do it for love. I do it, 'cause I can do it and I think I'm good at it, and that's all I do it for."
