Bob Dylan Adds to 2023 Tour

Share This:

Bob Dylan has announced additional 2023 concerts of his “Rough and Rowdy Ways” worldwide tour 2021-2024, named for his acclaimed 2020 studio album. The July concerts in Italy, announced on March 15, follow the June shows in Portugal, Span and France that were announced on March 10. His first shows of the year will be eight April performances in Japan that were announced on Feb. 9. (The latter were originally supposed to take place in 2020 but were cancelled due to the pandemic.) These new concerts represent his first since he completed an extensive tour of Europe, the U.K. and Ireland on Nov. 7 with what has typically been a 17-song set. Dylan turns 82 years old on May 24. Tickets for the majority of the Italy shows will be available for purchase on March 18.

Dylan began the tour Nov. 2, 2021, with concerts in the U.S., representing the Bard’s first live performances in nearly two years. (Dylan’s last live concert before that was Dec. 8, 2019, in Washington, D.C., following a 10-show residency at the Beacon, part of a lengthy fall 2019 U.S. tour.)

The “Rough and Rowdy Ways” debut concert took place in Milwaukee, Wisc., with an 18-song set that leaned heavily on Dylan’s most recent studio album, performing eight of the LP’s 10 tracks.

Watch him perform “I Contain Multitudes” on the tour’s second night, Nov. 3, in Chicago
