Bob Dylan Plays First Shows of 2023 In Japan

Bob Dylan has performed his first shows for 2023 with three performances at Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan.

Dylan finished 2022 in Ireland on 7 November and continues his four year ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’ tour. After the Japanese leg of the tour ends on 20 April, Bob will regroup with the band on 4 June is Portugal for a European tour going through until 9 July 2023. There are no UK dates listed and no further dates beyond the last June date in Italy.

Australia is expected to be in the Dylan plans with a 2024 tour most likely.

The three Japanese shows have the exact same setlist as the last 2022 show in Ireland. Dylan rarely performs a Greatest Hits show. Dylan shows are always about the moment and the moment for him right now is the 2020 ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’ album.
