Bob Dylan announces Australian arena tour dates
Music legend Bob Dylan will return to Australia this August for a series of arena shows in August.
The cross-generational icon will visit capital cities across Australia, starting in Perth and including special one-off shows in Newcastle and Wollongong.
The 76-year-old is one of the most influential musicians of all time, with a career spanning six decades.
His influence on popular music is immeasurable, with albums like The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde, inspiring generations of artists.
His socially and politically charged songs ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ and ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’, are considered among the most important songs in modern music. The ‘voice of a generation’ boasts an unparalleled repertoire, including timeless classics, ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, ‘Tangled Up In Blue’, ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ and ‘Girl From The North Country’.
Releasing more than 50 albums throughout his career, Dylan has sold more than 100 million records globally, received 11 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award and been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2012, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from then US President Barack Obama, and in 2016, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Dylan last visited Australia in 2014.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday May 23 at 9am local time.
