Bob Dylan confirms first UK tour in over five years

Tickets for the Bob Dylan shows go on sale from July 15th.

Bob Dylan has announced a run of UK dates for October – his first there in more than five years.

Four nights at the London Palladium will form the main part of the tour, with further gigs due in Cardiff, Hull and Nottingham, and a final two at Armadillo in Glasgow as Dylan continues the live work behind 2020’s Rough And Rowdy Ways album.

“Age has not tempered his view of life,” our review reads. “Sometimes he’s as scornful as he’s ever been: on Black Rider, he takes a sworn enemy, perhaps even mortality itself, to task (‘the size of your cock will get you nowhere’), while on Goodbye Jimmy Reed he’s rambunctious in behaviour, unbecoming of a (normal) man his age (‘transparent dress woman in a transparent dress, suits you well I must confess’).”

“The darkly comical My Own Version Of You is literal, Dylan taking us through, step by step, a detailed list of actions as he builds a Frankenstein’s monster. Some of the imagery borders on grotesque, but it’s all done with a wink and a wry smile.”
