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

Background[edit]

The tour started off with 14 shows in Japan including a 7 show run at the Zepp in Tokyo, Japan[3][4] before moving on to a concert in South Korea, the first he had performed there.[5]

After completing the Asian tour Dylan and the band performed a European Summer Tour comprising 27 dates including his only United Kingdom performance of the year at the Hop Farm Festival in Kent.[6][7] The European tour finished the next day in Limerick, Ireland.[8] After touring Europe Dylan returned home to the United States for a month long summer tour beginning on August 4 in Austin, Texas and ending on September 4 in Seattle, Washington and Bumbershoot. John Mellencamp was Dylan’s co-headliner for approximately half of the shows.[9] The fall tour was mainly a tour of College venues and some smaller theaters such as the Murat Theater in Indianapolis. The tour came to a close in Mashantucket, Connecticut on November 27 after 102 shows.[10]
