Bob Dylan to play 3 concerts in Minneapolis in November

Minnesota music icon Bob Dylan is coming home for a three-night concert stand in Minneapolis, WCCO reports.

The Hibbing native announced Wednesday he'll play the Orpheum Theatre Nov. 4, 5 and 6. The Minneapolis stop is part of his 15-city, 30-date North American concert tour that kicks off Oct. 17 in Seattle. Dylan knows the venue well – he and his brother owned the place until the Minneapolis Community Development Agency took possession of it in 1988, the Star Tribune notes.

Tickets for the Minneapolis shows go on sale Sept. 5. Ticket prices were not immediately announced.

Dylan played two shows in Minnesota in July 2013 as part of his AmericanaramA Festival of Music Tour. He first played in front of 7,000 fans at Bayfront Park in Duluth and traveled to Midway Stadium in St. Paul the following night, attracting a crowd of more than 14,000 people.

Word of Dylan's concert tour comes a day after he announced the long-anticipated release of "The Basement Tapes," a 1975 release of recordings made with The Band in 1967, The Current says.

According to Rolling Stone, the recordings will be a part of a box set titled "The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11," and will be released the same day as his first Minneapolis show, Nov. 4.

Rolling Stone says "Dylan will finally release the legendary sessions in their entirety: 138 tracks on six CDs, including 30 tracks that even fanatical Dylan fans never knew existed."

The music publication is previewing one of the tracks – "Odds and Ends" (alternate take) – on its website.
