Bob Dylan's latest tour will make a stop in Minnesota, but the music legend will not be playing in the Twin Cities.

A new raft of U.S. tour dates were announced on Monday, and among them is a concert at the Mankato Civic Center on Oct. 24.

It'll be the first time the Hibbing native has played Mankato since 1996, and will happen almost two years to the day he last performed in Minnesota, when he was in the much larger surroundings of the Xcel Energy Center.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m., which you can book through Ticketmaster.

There will be a $25 discount for students who buy their tickets through MSU-Mankato.

Dylan hasn't released an album since 2017's Triplicate, but he has released this year a box set that went alongside "Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese."

The Mankato Civic Center has a seating capacity for sporting events of 5,280, rising to 8,200 for concerts.
