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

Information[edit]

The tour started in Stockholm, Sweden at an intimate concert at Berns Salonger.[3] Dylan performed five concerts in England. One of which was at the Roundhouse in London which was a concert especially for the members of the BobDylan.com fan club.[4][5][6] Dylan also performed at the Edinburgh Playhouse, the first time he had performed in the city since April 1995.[7][8][9][10]

After completing the 33 date European tour Dylan returned to the United States to perform a summer ballpark tour.[11] He was joined on the tour by Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp.[12] The tour consisted of 31 dates. Dylan performed at Summerfest in Milwaukee [13][14] and Rothbury Festival in Rothbury, Michigan.[15][16][17]

After the summer tour Dylan and the band toured the States again in the fall starting in Seattle. During the fall tour Dylan and his band performed three concerts at several venues during the tour including the Hollywood Palladium, Aragon Ballroom, Wang Theatre and United Palace Theater where the tour ended on November 19.
