No one is more fitting to help The Met ease back into live music thanBob Dylan.The folk-rock icon was the first act to reopen the venue in December 2018 after its $56 million restorations. Now, he will return for yet another milestone in the venue’s history as one of the first performances following the COVID-19 pandemic. Dylan and his band will play at the venue on November 29 and 30 as part of their Rough and Rowdy Ways tour. The tour is a 3-year endeavor that will take Dylan and his band around the world.  

Dylan recently released Springtime in New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 / 1980-1985. The album, which came outy on September 17, is a collection of rehearsals, outtakes, live tracks, and alternative versions of songs from his albums Shot Of Love, Infidels, and Empire Burlesque. While it seems impossible that Dylan’s harsh vocals and poetic lyrics could get any more intimate, the record shows Dylan in his purest form. From the tremor and slight slurring of his words on “Let’s Keep It Between Us – Rehearsal” and the melancholic twang of “Emotionally Yours – Empire Burlesque Alternate Take,” it feels like he’s letting you in on the secret behind the magic. 

Tickets for the United States dates will be on sale on Friday, October 1 at 10 a.m., and you can find them here.
