Bob Dylan Announces Japanese Tour

Bob Dylan will head to Japan this Spring for a series of tour dates across the island nation. The run will kick off on March 31 at the Zepp DiverCity in Tokyo. The legendary singer-songwriter will then stick around the city for five more shows before heading to heading to Sapporo, Nagoya and Fukuoka over the course of the next week. The outing will finally come to a close with a three-night stand at Zepp Namba in Osaka April 21-23.

As previously reported, Dylan went overseas for a European tour in the fall after he wrapped up the surprise-filled AmericanaramA Tour with Wilco and My Morning Jacket. His upcoming Japanese shows are currently his only scheduled stops for 2014.

These are intimate venues for Dylan, but last time he played Japan tickets were over $100. I live in Japan, but he’s simply not worth that price. Last time he came I instead went to two shows—Wilco and Rodrigo&Gabriela—which combined cost about the same as one Dylan show. Wise choice.

Better do a better job of screening morons like Archie B. You have nothing better to do than get on here and ridicule Japanese people and their pronunciation? Did you know the Japanese language is 10 times more difficult than English and yet Japan has a 99% literacy rate? Did you know that the average Japanese person probably has a better knowledge of English grammar than morons like you? Grow up jackass.

Archie when you outgrow your own inadequacy issues you’ll probably stop that juvenile behavior of yours.

Archie you sound like a tool. If I were in Japan I would certainly hit this up.
These are pretty small venues and it’s Dylan.
