The Never Ending Tour is the popular name for Bob Dylan's endless touring schedule since June 7, 1988.[1][2]

Background[edit]

The Never Ending Tour 1996 started on April 16 in Madison, New Jersey. The concerts mainly took place in the North-Eastern states of America, as well as four concerts in eastern Canada.[3]

Dylan later travelled to Europe to perform a twenty-eight date tour of eleven countries and twenty-five cities. Dylan also performed at several festivals, including ‘MasterCard Masters of Music Concert for The Prince's Trust’ as well as the Pori Jazz Festival.[4]

Shortly after finishing the European tour Dylan performed two special shows at the House of Blues in Atlanta, Georgia. Dylan later picked up the tour on October 17 in Los Angeles. The tour came to a close a month and a half later in Akron, Ohio.[5]

There were originally plans to tour smaller club venues towards to the end of December, but these plans were shelved until the following year.[6]
