This morning, Bob Dylan announced a fall tour that will stop in Minneapolis for three shows at the Orpheum Theatre: Nov. 4, 5, and 6. Tickets, which go on sale Sept. 6, are priced at $55 to $135.
The shows, at a venue formerly part-owned by the Minnesota native, are Dylan’s first Minnesota shows since last summer’s Americanarama tour made stops in St. Paul and Duluth. Yesterday, it was announced that Dylan will release an exhaustive, “complete” version of his Basement Tapes recordings made with the Band in 1967.
