He Cannot Reschedule The Shows
Like other musicians, Bob Dylan is forced to cancel his upcoming summer tour in the US amid the coronavirus pandemic. It was slated to kick off on June 4 at Les Schwab Amphitheatre in Bend, Oregon and then wrap up on July 12 at Bethel Woods Center of the Arts in Bethel Woods, New York. Unlike other treks, however, the dates could not be moved to a later date which is why they had to cancel it instead.
According to a post on his verified Twitter account, the rock icon announced: “To all our fans: In the interest of public health and safety and after many attempts to try and reschedule these shows for a workable timeframe this year, it is with deep regret that we announce the US Bob Dylan shows originally scheduled for June/July are cancelled.”
He added in another tweet: “We hope to be back out on the road at the earliest possible time once we are confident that it is safe for both fans and concert staff. Please contact your point of purchase for all information on refunds.”
During the COVID-19 outbreak, Dylan has released three new songs – “Murder Most Foul”, “I Contain Multitudes,” and the latest is “False Prophet”. He also announced his upcoming album “Rough and Rowdy Ways” out on June 19 – his first album of original material since 2012.
