Bob Dylan Announces First UK Tour In Five Years; How To Get Tickets

Tickets go on sale this week...

Bob Dylan will return to the UK this Autumn for his first tour in five years.

Easily one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Bob Dylan remains an inscrutable, often mysterious figure. Hitting the road once more, his current Stateside run has been rewarded with plaudits, his always-excellent band teasing out fresh facets of recent album ‘Rough & Rowdy Ways’.

Looking ahead, Bob Dylan will return to the UK in October for his first British shows in some five years. Opening with four nights at the London Palladium, Bob Dylan then plays Cardiff, Hull, and Nottingham.

Closing with a pair of shows at Glasgow’s Armadillo, all shows will be non-phone events – the audience will have to put their phones into a Yondr bag, which they can keep with them until after the show. It seems to be a common tactic – Jack White employed it on his recent tour. 

Tickets go on sale at 10am this Friday (July 15th).

Bob Dylan will release his new book The Philosophy Of Modern Song later this year. Out on November 8th via Simon & Schuster, the press release notes that Dylan “analyses what he calls the trap of easy rhymes, breaks down how the addition of a single syllable can diminish a song, and even explains how bluegrass relates to heavy metal…”
