Bob Dylan is rolling out the tour bus again in time for a late summer run of seasonal sheds and ballparks.
The iconic troubadour launches his latest American tour on August 4 with a performance at The Backyard in Austin, TX. With 15 shows presently booked, Dylan will be on the road at least through a September 4 appearance at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, WA.
Dylan’s present itinerary includes performances on August 6 at the Zoo Amphitheatre in Oklahoma City, OK; August 12 at Mike Lansing Field in Casper, WY; August 18 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV; and August 22 at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena in Stateline, NV.
John Mellencamp will appear on at least four dates, including stops in Casper and Las Vegas. Additional dates for the August-September tour will also be released in the near future, according to Dylan’s official Web site.
The first batch of public onsales for the summer venture begins at the start of the upcoming weekend, on June 25 and 26. Face values range widely from market to market, with some tickets starting as low as $40 and others reaching up to $150, according to current listings on Ticketmaster.com.
Last summer, the acclaimed singer-songwriter embarked on the Bob Dylan Show’s 2009 Ballpark Tour, which featured support from Mellancamp, as well as Willie Nelson. After completing his late summer routing, Dylan stayed on the road with a fall 2009 U.S. tour that stretched from October through November.
