The forthcoming shows are billed as “non-phone events”, per a press release. Audience members will be required to put their mobile devices into a Yondr bag, which they can keep with them until after the performance.

Dylan’s ‘Rough And Rowdy Ways’ world tour resumed in the US back in March. His latest concert took place in Denver City, Colorado last Wednesday (July 6).


The singer-songwriter hasn’t performed in the United Kingdom since he co-headlined London’s BST Hyde Park in 2019 alongside Neil Young. Prior to that, he brought his ‘Never Ending Tour’ to the UK in 2017.

Earlier this month, a one-of-a-kind re-recording of Bob Dylan singing his 1963 classic ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ sold at auction for £1.48million ($1.78million).
