Bob Dylan to tour UK in autumn

Bob Dylan will play nine UK dates

Bob Dylan has announced he will be touring the UK for nine dates.

The Times They Are A-Changin' singer announced the upcoming shows on his website.

Bob's tour kicks off in November and starts at Glasgow's Clyde Auditorium before moving on to Blackpool Opera House and finishing up at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

He will play three shows in each location with the UK leg of the tour running from November 18 to 28.

The gigs will showcase the singer's last five albums including the latest one, Tempest, released last year.

Bob was recently inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters where he was given honorary membership.

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon spoke at the ceremony and according to Billboard said: "The question of whether or not Dylan's lyrics are poetry feels irrelevant. Dylan's lyrics are writing, and his writing has influenced my own writing as much, if not more, than any poet apart from O'Hara and Edgar [Allan] Poe."

The UK dates are part of a European tour which also takes in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, France, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Tickets will go on sale on June 14.

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
