The 76-year-old singer will hit the road in October and make his way from the west coast to Boston, where the tour concludes on November 16th.
Along for the trek for all but the first two dates will be Mavis Staples, civil rights activist and Dylan’s one-time girlfriend/frequent collaborator who famously rejected his marriage proposal in the early 60s.
Dylan’s latest release is Triplicate, a three disc collection of covers of classic American songs.
Staples recently announced the upcoming If All I Was Was Black, a collaborative album with Jeff Tweedy, due November 17th via Anti-Records.
