Bob Dylan Announces First U.S. Tour Dates of This Year

American Folk legend Bob Dylan announced a new series of U.S. tour dates on Monday night, set to begin in early October.


The 25 new dates will take Dylan on an expedition across the Southern U.S., beginning in Midland, TX and concluding during early November in Richmond, KY.


Dylan’s kept busy this year, contributing a rendition of the standard “She’s Funny That Way” (retitled “He’s Funny That Way”) to a compilation supporting gay marriage back in April. He also announced the genesis of his very own line of whiskey, Heaven’s Door.


Dylan’s most recent album, the three-disc standards compilation Triplicate, dropped last Spring.
