Bob Dylan will finally resume his Never Ending Tour this November, following his longest break from the road since 1981 to 1984.

Billed the Rough and Rowdy Ways tour, the trek kicks off at Milwaukee’s Riverside Theatre on November 2nd — Dylan’s first public performance since 2019. He’ll travel through the Midwest, hitting Chicago, Cleveland, and Bloomington, Illinois, before heading to the East Coast. He’ll hit his usual New York City spot — the Beacon Theatre — for three nights in late November.

Although the leg wraps in Washington, D.C., on December 2nd, Dylan’s website bills it as a worldwide tour lasting through 2024, with more dates likely to be announced.

The new shows will feature the live debut of Dylan’s most recent album Rough and Rowdy Ways; although he streamed the Shadow Kingdom concert special last summer, he mainly performed songs from the Sixties and Seventies. Earlier this month, he released the massive Springtime in New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985), spotlighting the early Eighties.
