Bob Dylan tickets are on sale this week for the first leg of his “Rough and Rowdy Ways” World Tour, covering U.S. dates in the fall of 2021. Dylan, who turned 80 in May, plans to tour into 2024 in support of his 2020 Rough and Rowdy Ways album, resuming touring in November after being forced to halt his “Never Ending Tour” due to COVID.
Dylan’s tour dates for the Rough and Rowdy Ways run begin on November 2 at the Riverside Theatre in Milwaukee, and run through December 2 at The Anthem in Washington D.C. In between, stops include Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre, Palace Theatre in Louisville, and multi-night stops at the Beacon Theatre in New York, Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, and The Met in Philadelphia.
Tickets for this first leg of the Rough and Rowdy Ways tour are on sale for the general public beginning on Friday, October 1. Presale opportunities are already open for those with access to venue or artist-based offerings.
Rough and Rowdy Ways was the 39th studio album put out by Dylan, and the first of original material since 2012. It was preceded with the release of Murder Most Foul on YouTube in March 2020, followed by the launch of I Contain Multitudes in April and False Prophet in May before the album was launched in June. The album was strongly reviewed, with Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield writing “While the world keeps trying to celebrate him as an institution, pin him down, cast him in the Nobel Prize canon, embalm his past, this drifter always keeps on making his next escape. On Rough and Rowdy Ways, Dylan is exploring terrain nobody else has reached before—yet he just keeps pushing on into the future”
