Bob Dylan announced yesterday that this Summer he’ll be doing what all the cool kids are doing and head out on his Americanarama Festival of Music. Along for the ride will be Wilco and My Morning Jacket.
The announcement came via Dylan’s website where the festival’s logo appeared with “Meet me there – Beat me there!” written. But Dylan, his band, Wilco and My Morning Jacket aren’t the only ones that will be performing; on selected dates, the Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Ryan Bingham will be joining the fun.
While news of this came as a nice surprise, it shouldn’t have come as one because last Thursday, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James sort of dropped the news during a Record Store Day interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
As of right now, the tour is slated to start on June 26th in West Palm Beach, FL and end on August 4th in Mountain View, CA. Tickets for the upcoming tour will start pre-sales on Wednesday, April 24.
