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

Tour[edit]

The Never Ending Tour 2002 started in Florida, where Dylan had not performed since September 1999.[3] The tour continued through the southern United States.[4]

The tour then moved on to Europe where Dylan played twenty seven cities in twelve countries including nine concerts in Germany and seven in England.[5]

After performing Europe Dylan returned to North America performing in Canada and the United States. During this leg of the tour Dylan returned to the Newport Folk Festival. This was the first time he performed at the festival since the controversial performance there in July 1965.[6][7]

After completing his US summer tour Dylan performed a round tour of the United States starting in Seattle, Washington on October 4 and coming to an end Fairfax, Virginia on November 22. It was after this last performance that Charlie Sexton left Bob Dylan’s band. He returned to Dylan’s band line-up in Summer 2009.[8][9]
