Mon, 07 Mar 2016 12:52:23
Bob Dylan's new album is called Fallen Angels. The album follows his collection of Frank Sinatra covers, last year's Shadows in the Night. Dylan, ever the road junkie, has also announced his summer tour itinerary in support of his 37th studio LP.
The tour gets underway in Japan before Bob Dylan and His Band set off on a 27-date U.S. trek, beginning with a pair of shows at Woodinville, Washington's Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery (June 4th and 5th). Mavis Staples will open for all Dylan's U.S. dates.
The tour will keep Dylan busy in the months of June and July, as sights are set on cities and towns across the country. Included among the sprawl are concerts at Morrison, CO's Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Indianapolis, IN's Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park, Canandaigua, NY's CMAC, and Philadelphia, PA's The Mann Center among others. The tour comes to a close July 17th at Gilford, New Hampshire's Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.
So far there is no release date set for Fallen Angels. Tickets are up for sale now, and--with exception to the dates in Indianapolis and Boston--come with a redemption code for Fallen Angels on CD.
Information regarding the new album is currently at a premium, but there has been speculation that Fallen Angels will be stylistically similar to 2015's Shadows in the Night, which saw Dylan embracing jazz and pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, NME reports.
