Bob Dylan has announced his first UK tour in over five years.
The 81-year-old American folk singer and rock singer will have nine dates in October 2022 as part of the Rough and Row Deways Worldwide Tour, which began in Milwaukee in December.
He concludes with four nights at the London Palladium and two nights at Glasgow before visiting Cardiff, Hull and Nottingham for the arena show.
The concert will be held from Wednesday, October 19th to Monday, October 31st, and tickets will go on sale on Friday, July 15th.
Winner of numerous awards, including the Nobel Prize in Literature, during his 60-year career, Dylan last toured the UK in April and May 2017 as part of his endless tour.
In that series of shows, he was blown by the wind and mixed classic tracks with new material, such as the revisit of Highway 61 and Tangled Up in Blue.
Dylan has already dated 74 times in the United States to support the UK’s number one 39th studio album as part of the Rough & Low Dayways tour.
The show takes advantage of his vast back catalog and songs from the acclaimed new album.
All shows are non-phone events and spectators are required to lock their phones in the Yondr bag for the duration of the performance.
Appearing from the Greenwich Village folk scene in New York City in the early 1960s, Dylan became a counterculture figure with a series of political hymns.
Born as Robert Zimmerman in Duluth, Minnesota, Dylan was the first songwriter to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016, and the Swedish Academy said, “A new poetic expression in the great American song tradition. I created it. “
His songs have been recorded over 6,000 times and various artists such as The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix and Adele have achieved commercial and significant success on the cover.
Dylan has sold more than 125 million records worldwide and won the best original Oscar in 2001 for the movie “Wonder Boys” in “Things Have Change”.
Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday, July 15th.
