Bob Dylan Preps for 2021 World Tour

Starting this November, Bob Dylan will perform his first dates behind his 39th studio album Rough and Rowdy Ways.

Shows across the United States begin November 2 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and end up in Washington, D.C. the following month. While all of the U.S. dates have been announced, Dylan's website and social media are billing the trek as a world tour that will conclude in 2024. This likely means additional dates will be added to the schedule soon.

The first tour stop will mark Dylan's first in-person gig since December 2019. Pre-pandemic, Dylan was one of the most consistent touring musicians out there. According to Rolling Stone, this break marked his longest break from the road since 1981 to 1984.

Rough and Rowdy Ways followed the release of two singles: the 17-minute JFK elegy “Murder Most Foul” and “I Contain Multitudes.” “Murder Most Foul” earned Dylan the achievement of his first-ever No. 1 song under his own name on any Billboard chart.

Recently, Dylan announced a 1980s-era bootleg series box set and streamed a concert called Shadow Kingdom. A museum celebrating the musician's life and legacy will be opening next year in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Additionally, on November 30, an exhibit of his artwork will open at Miami's Phillip & Patricia Frost Art Museum. Finally, the Bob Dylan biopic Going Electric is still in the works, with Hollywood heartthrob Timothée Chalamet to play Dylan and James Mangold in the directing chair.

Tickets for the fall tour go on sale October 1. You can purchase them on Dylan's website.
