Bob Dylan has announced a US tour, which will take place later this year.

He’ll play a total of 28 shows with his band, kicking off at the Comerica Theatre, Phoenix, on October 4 and wrapping up with a set at Richmond’s EKU Centre For The Arts on November 11.

The shows will follow Dylan’s tour of Australia and New Zealand which gets under way this week.

Last month, Dylan released the double album Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances From The Copyright Collections.

It features material recorded during his coffeehouse era, from his concerts at New York’s Town Hall and Carnegie Hall in 1963, a duet with Joan Baez from the March On Washington that same year and further live cuts from his 1964 and 1965 appearances at the Newport Folk Festivals and more.

Earlier this year, Dylan released a range of whiskies in collaboration with Marc Bushala – the entrepreneur responsible for Angel’s Envy.
