Iconic musician Bob Dylan has announced two new Scottish gigs in his first visit to the country after five years.

The 81-year-old will play two nights at Glasgow’s SEC Armadillo on October 30 and 31.

His Rough And Rowdy Ways worldwide tour began last December in Milwaukee, USA, named after his 39th studio album released in 2020.

Since the beginning of the tour, Dylan has played 74 shows across America and is set to bring the same magic to the UK in autumn for a total of nine performances.

Beginning with four intimate performances at London’s Palladium Theatre, the star will then travel to Cardiff, Hull and Nottingham before his two final shows in Glasgow.

The global icon played his first Scottish gig in 1966 in Glasgow, followed by numerous shows at the SECC – with a showstopping performance at Stirling Castle in 2001.

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday, July 15.
