Bob Dylan Announces U.S. Tour Dates with Tony Garnier

Tony Garnier

The one and only Bob Dylan is going back out on the road again this fall for his first United States tour of the year. Starting in Midland, Texas, the bard will blanket the South throughout October before heading north mid-November. The run will include a seven-night run at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. It’s scheduled to wrap up December 3rd with a performance at The Met in Philadelphia.

Rolling Stone reported that Dylan’s fairly standard set list has begun to be shaken up with fan favorites he hasn’t played in years including “All Along the Watchtower,” “Gotta Serve Somebody,” and “When I Paint My Masterpiece.” Notably, he pulled out the song “Like a Rolling Stone” at a concert in Christchurch, New Zealand. Rolling Stone reported Dylan has only played it once in the past five years and that it was made special by the bass work of Tony Garnier, who has worked with the singer since 1989.

“No recordings have surfaced [from the concert] yet, but reports say that he’s reinvented ‘Like a Rolling Stone,'” they shared. “One fan called it ‘a lovely new arrangement with slow passages where [Garnier] bowed the double bass.'”
