Fresh off the release of the documentary “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese” and a corresponding 14-disc box set, the legendary folk singer Bob Dylan is going back on the road.
As Rolling Stone notes, the original Rolling Thunder Revue saw Dylan and a group that included Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott–and one-off appearances by the likes of Ringo Starr, Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell–playing smaller venues with little notice in 1975 and 1976.
Sandwiched in the middle of the tour was the release of Dylan’s 17th album, “Desire,” which includes such favorites as “Hurricane” and “Sara.” Some of the extensive footage captured on the tour ended up in the 1978 film project “Renaldo and Clara.”
Dylan’s most recent studio album, “Triplicate,” was released in 2017.
