Legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan has added more shows to the UK leg of his Rough And Rowdy Ways World Tour. Dylan originally announced the nine-date schedule – his first UK shows in over five years – in July, and has now added three more performances.
Additional shows include bookings at Manchester Apollo on November 2, Oxford New Theater on November 4 and the following night at the International Center in Bournemouth. Tickets for the new shows are on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, September 5. Full schedule below.
Dylan’s Rough And Rowdy Ways tour kicked off at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in November of last year. During the 18-song set, he performed much of the music he had released during the lockdown, including eight songs from the Rough and rowdy manners album, which hit stores in May 2020. He also played three songs from the previous album Stormreleased in 2012.
When asked if he thinks of the pandemic in biblical terms, Dylan answered the New York Times“I think it’s a precursor to something else to come. It’s an invasion, sure, and it’s widespread, but biblical? You mean as some sort of warning sign for people to repent of their wrongdoings? This would imply that the world is in line for some sort of divine punishment.
“Extreme arrogance can lead to disastrous penalties. Perhaps we are on the eve of destruction. There are many ways to think about this virus. I think you just have to let it take its course.”
