Bob Dylan concert chronology

The Never Ending Tour is the popular name for Bob Dylan's endless touring schedule since June 7, 1988.[1][2][3]

Background[edit]

Bob Dylan's eighth tour of Japan was announced via his official website on December 22, 2015. The tour was slated to take place throughout April covering several major Japanese cities including Tokyo and Osaka.

On March 22, 2016, it was announced that Dylan, among others, would headline the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, during the summer.[4][5] A full U.S. summer tour was announced on Dylan's official website on March 7, 2016, beginning in Woodinville, Washington, on June 4 and ending in Guilford, New Hampshire, on July 17, in support of Dylan's upcoming album Fallen Angels.[6][7][8]

On May 3, 2016, it was officially confirmed that Dylan, with his band, would perform at Desert Trip, a festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, featuring performers from the 1960s and 1970s. Dylan was to share the bill with The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who.[9] Following the two Desert Trip performances, Dylan and his band will embark on a complete twenty-seven date tour, throughout the Eastern, Southern and Western United States; this was announced via Dylan's official website on August 8, 2016.[10]

The 2016 tour comprises seventy-five concerts, the fewest concerts Dylan has performed in a year since the Never Ending Tour's début in 1988, when he also performed seventy-five concerts.
