love dylan but i'm not familiar with how he generally schedules his tours. only 22 and discovered dylan at the end of 2007 so i thought some ppl here may have some ideas.

i imagine like most artists, he'd appear in major markets to promote his album.

he's in europe til mid july. based on past album releases (MT, LAT, TOOM, TTL), should i expect to see dylan back near new york city after he releases his new album?

New studio albums recently have always been released in September - (TTL/CITH in '09 was a rare exception since there were two releases in one year). September release qualifies them for the next Grammy awards, too. He usually follows the releases with a US fall tour, on which he debuts quite a few of the new songs. Sometimes, if he happens to be elsewhere when a record is released, he might throw in a new song there. Love Sick was debuted in the UK and If You Ever Go To Houston in Dublin.

With this, welcome to ER. :) Did you see him in concert before?

how does dylan schedule tours around new album releases??

usually through booking agents and promoters.

thanks!! i've seen him twice, once at lehigh university, bethlehem pa (Nov 2010) and then more recently at the mann center in philadelphia (august 2011)

went to see him at first for the dylan experience and was a bit hesitant since i was all about 60s dylan then. now i listen to modern dylan more than the 60s, with a lot of hard rain era and 80s thrown in with the newer material.

tell tale signs really turned me on to his recent stuff last summer.

i wasn't sure if i should post in general discussion or the tour link, but wanted to hear some thoughts on this.

Bob has his handlers mind over such things. Same way it's been for 40 plus years.

And Bob's handlers have handlers that mind over even other things.

hmm...it's a borderline case, it could have been posted in either domain i think, but probably more appropriate for the tour page.

sounds like you have followed a nice trajectory that should gain you membership to the "We don't care for what Bennyboy has to say beyond 1975" club. There are quite a few clubs here, and a few heavy hitters, and a few wise crackers. and lot's of chicks...
if memory serves that bethlehem show was pretty good...setlist looked nice anyhow...

I refused to cough up the cash for yet another booklet and an extra CD with not much new on it. The double cd is great.

Sure is.... I wouldn't have if it wasn't what it is. I waited three years until the price came down, and then asked it for Christmas last year. :lol:

Even the local record store is selling the used version at the rip off rate of $60. I have it and would say it is not worth the cost...plenty of more interesting music available for free...imo.

I agree the third disc is the weakest of the lot, and the single sleeves book is useless, but it's still my favorite Bob era, and I thought 39.99€ with free shipping was an okay price.
