If you want to see homegrown music legend Bob Dylan when he returns to Minnesota next week, you'll have to travel to Duluth.

The Pioneer Press reports that Dylan's stop on his AmericanaramA Festival of Music tour July 10 in St. Paul has sold out.

Tickets for Dylan's show July 9 at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth are still available at $68 each.

Both concerts will also feature Wilco, Richard Thompson and My Morning Jacket.

Midway Stadium, the baseball home of the St. Paul Saints, has a seating capacity of about 6,000.

The Star Tribune reports that the last time Dylan sold out a concert in the Twin Cities was in 2008 at Northrup Auditorium in Minneapolis.

Dylan's concert at the Xcel Energy Center last November -- which also featured Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler -- only drew 7,000 fans.

Dylan's show in Duluth will be his first since 1999. See a video below of him performing Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" from that concert.
