The unassailable music legend Bob Dylan will continue touring this Spring to the delight of songwriting fans everywhere. Dylan, whose “Never-Ending Tour” came back to life last year after the pandemic paused it, will play a packed series of North American dates in March and April across the country.

Right now, Dylan’s camp plans to continue touring through at least 2024, at which point the generational talent will turn 83 years old. Technically, the upcoming leg of the tour will support Dylan’s newest studio album, Rough and Rowdy Ways. But real Dylan fans know that every show has the chance to showcase something different than the one before it.

In recent years, Dylan has standardized his shows more; opting to play the same (or similar) set from night to night. But the enigmatic bard sports the most incredible catalog of music ever written. Thus, any night could be the night he decides to change things up and play one of his famous protest songs, poetic ballads, country-western tunes, Christian gospel songs, or latest releases.

Considering how many dates Dylan plans to stack in the next few months, fans can at least hope for some variety evening to evening. This run begins in Phoenix on March 3, loops through to the South, and then doubles back. It ends six weeks later in Oklahoma City.

Below is the full run of dates and cities for Dylan and his “Never-Ending Tour.”
