Bob Dylan Announces 21-Date Fall Tour

Music News

Bob Dylan has just announced a 21-date North American fall tour taking in stops at both theaters and arenas. Dylan launches the trek on October 13th in Valley Center, California at Harrah’s Resort SoCal and winds things down just over a month later on November 16th in Boston Massachusetts at Agganis Arena. Nearly all of the cities find Dylan playing one-night-stands with Salt Lake City and Philadelphia singled out with two shows each. Mavis Staples will serve as the tour’s opening act.

Back in March, Bob Dylan released Triplicate — his first triple-record set. The album, which follows Dylan’s 2016 Top 10 standards collection, Fallen Angels, features 30 brand-new recordings of classic American tunes. The massive collection is broken into three distinct albums — named ‘Til The Sun Goes Down; Devil Dolls; and ‘Comin Home Late and features such evergreens as “The Best Is Yet To Come,” “As Time Goes By,” “Sentimental Journey,” “Stormy Weather,” “How Deep Is The Ocean,” and others. The set, which is his third straight collection to mine the “Great American Songbook,” is once again produced under Dylan’s longtime alias, “Jack Frost.”

Rolling Stone magazine’s contributing editor Austin Scaggs — the son of Boz Scaggs believes that even today, Bob Dylan really has no firm grasp as to who his core audience is: “I think he sees his audience as people that can potentially understand where he’s coming from. I think that there was that period he had absolutely no idea — y’know, whether he was drunk or high, who knows what he was doing? But I think he did lose touch a little bit with his audience. Y’know, 95 percent of the people don’t really have a deep understanding of his catalogue. They really are there for him to play ‘Like A Rolling Stone.'”
