Bob Dylan’s new concert plans and Madonna’s domination on the road are top stories in the daily tour recap for September 4, as compiled by TicketNews.
Further tour plans continue to unfold for road dog and music icon Bob Dylan. The singer-songwriter has revealed a three-night stand for Chicago at the end of October, as well as a few other concerts, all of which go on sale next week.
Meanwhile, the reigning queen of pop will hold onto her crown a bit longer. Madonna has broken more earnings records with her Sticky & Sweet Tour, which wrapped earlier this week in Israel. Heavy metal band Trivium might not be breaking any box office records yet, but the band has lined up an impressive itinerary that will take them through more than 60 cities across North America from September through December.
Those are the final concert and tour reports before the start of the Labor Day weekend. Before launching into your holiday festivities, check out abbreviated highlights of the day’s itinerary updates:
