The “Never-Ending Tour” of Bob Dylan will make its way to Japan, Australia and several other countries in July and August, with all cities hosting the Nobel Prize-winning singer-songwriter for a single evening.

In March and April, Dylan performed several dozen dates in Europe. The 2018 tour follows a particularly fruitful year for Dylan: 2017 saw the release of his three-disc Triplicate, his latest collection of Great American Songbook covers, and Trouble No More—The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 /1979-1981, a comprehensive collection of music made during Dylan’s so-called Christian era.

More of the old standards from his recent albums have found their way into his concert setlists of late. On the European dates, many of Dylan’s own classic rock compositions of the ’60s and ’70s, such as “Highway 61 Revisited,” “Tangled Up in Blue” and “Simple Twist of Fate” have also been featured. Many of the typically 20-song sets included “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Ballad of a Thin Man” as encores.
