Just days after announcing an extensive new U.S. leg of his “Never-Ending Tour,” Bob Dylan has now added even more dates–all of them in New York City. The Nobel Prize-winning singer-songwriter will perform a seven-show residency at the historic Beacon Theatre on Manhattan’s Upper West Side on November 23, 24, 26, 27, 29, 30 and December 1. (Dylan previously performed a five-nighter at the venue in 2017.)

The new announcement follows the announcement on Sept. 10 that Dylan will headline opening night of The Met Philadelphia on December 3. Bob Dylan & His Band will be the first act to play at the newly renovated historic venue and mark his 50th Philadelphia-area performance.

Originally built in 1908 by opera impresario Oscar Hammerstein, The Met Philadelphia is currently undergoing a $56 million restoration to transform the historic theater into the crown jewel of North Broad Street’s renaissance, which has seen a neighborhood revitalization through several major restoration projects.

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.

On July 27, Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings released a new compilation album of Dylan recordings, Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections. Our review

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 have included “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Ballad of a Thin Man” as encores.
