Bob Dylan Announces First 2020 Dates

Share This:

That “Never-Ending Tour” still isn’t ending: Bob Dylan has announced his first concerts of 2020, with string of concerts in Japan. The news, revealed Oct. 28, comes as he continues his lengthy fall 2019 U.S. tour. Still to come: a residency at New York City’s Beacon Theatre.

The last leg of the previous tour took place entirely in Europe, starting in Germany in March and ending July 14 in Ireland. The last two dates of that run included a pair of shows with co-headliner Neil Young. At London’s Hyde Park, the Bard’s 19-song set included such career favorites as “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Ballad of a Thin Man.”

The latest chapter revisits his sessions in Nashville, from 1967 to 1969, focusing on previously unavailable recordings made with Johnny Cash and unreleased tracks from the John Wesley Harding, Nashville Skyline and Self Portrait sessions.
