Bob Dylan Is Going On Tour with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Songwriting titan Bob Dylan is hitting the road alongside Americana rockers Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats for a summer tour, comprising 25 U.S. shows set for June and July. These will be Rateliff’s backing band’s only shows of 2020—as Rateliff explains, “We planned to take a year off from Night Sweats shows but the opportunity came to do a tour with Bob Dylan and there was no way we would pass that up.”

Dylan’s tour alongside Rateliff & The Night Sweats kicks off in Bend, Ore., on June 4, with stops at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, Berkeley’s Greek Theatre, Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Atlanta’s Ameris Bank Amphitheatre, concluding with a July 12 show at Bethel, N.Y.’s Woods Center for the Arts. Rateliff & The Night Sweats will perform full hourlong sets before Dylan and his band take the stage, with The Hot Club of Cowtown opening each show.

We haven’t heard a whole lot from Dylan lately, aside from the acclaimed Broadway musical inspired by and featuring his music, Girl from the North Country, as well as the biopic in development with Timothée Chalamet onboard to play a young Dylan. Present-day Dylan will spend the month of April touring Japan, specifically Tokyo and Osaka.

Rateliff, meanwhile, is currently on tour in support of his latest solo album And It’s Still Alright, out now on Stax Records. Most of his solo dates, which you can see down below, are already sold out, and feature material from Rateliff’s pre-Night Sweats catalog, as well as his new record.
