Bob Dylan is preparing for his usual summer tour across the United States. The iconic singer-songwriter will be back on the road starting next month with a 23-city national routing.
The coast-to-coast tour kicks off with a July 14 concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, CA, and continues through August 20, when Dylan will perform at the Waterfront Pavilion in downtown Bangor, ME.
Highlights of the summer 2011 tour calendar include performances on July 17 at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, NV; July 26 at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, LA; August 1 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN; and August 12 at the Bethel Woods Center in Bethel, NY.
Tickets are already available for select dates on the summer tour. Later dates on the itinerary are still in presales and have public onsales opening June 17 or after.
Ticket face values begin around $25 and reach up to the $60 range in most markets. Complete ticket onsale and pricing information is available on Dylan’s official Web site.
This year’s tour breaks from the tradition of Dylan’s 2009 and 2010 summer ventures to visit U.S. ballparks.
The troubadour’s 2010 summer tour featured a mix of both amphitheater and ballpark dates with support from John Mellencamp. Meanwhile the 2009 Ballpark Tour, featuring both Mellencamp and Willie Nelson, focused solely on minor leage parks and stadiums.
