Bob Dylan returns to UK

Bob Dylan will play six shows in the UK in October, he’s announced.

The short tour includes three appearances at London’s Royal Albert Hall followed by two in Manchester’s O2 Apollo and one in Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena.

He released 36th album Shadows In The Night in February, featuring his take on songs made famous by Frank Sinatra. He received the MusiCares Person Of The Year award the same month.

The 73-year-old said in January: “Look, you get older. Passion is a young man’s game. Young people can be passionate. Older people have got to be more wise.

“You’re around a while, you leave certain things to the young. Don’t try to act like you’re young – you could really hurt yourself.”

UK tickets are on sale now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
