Here is everything you need to know about it.

Dylan has already performed 74 US gigs as part of his Rough and Rowdy Ways Tour in support of his 39th studio album, which debuted at number one in the UK.

The shows have featured songs from his extensive back catalogue, as well as tracks from the critically acclaimed new album.

Dylan last played in the United Kingdom as part of his ‘Never Ending Tour’ in April and May of 2017.

During that run of gigs, he mixed classics like ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’, ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ and ‘Tangled Up’ In Blue with current songs and newer material.

Earlier this month, a one-off new recording of Dylan’s hit song ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ sold for almost £1.5 million at auction.

The release is the first new studio recording of the song since Dylan wrote it in 1962 and was sold by Christie’s in London.

It was recorded in March 2021 with Dylan’s long-time collaborator T Bone Burnett and featured as part of Christie’s Exceptional Sale during its Classic Week.

Burnett said he hoped the new recording; offered on a new audio medium: Ionic Original, would help “develop a musical space in the fine arts market”.

2022 marks Dylan’s 60th anniversary as a recording artist and of ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’, which was written for his second album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.
