Bob Dylan, Minnesota’s most famous son, on Monday announced 27 tour dates to coincide with his new album, but Minnesota didn’t make the list.
Dylan will play 15 shows in Japan before returning for the U.S. portion of his tour with R&B legend Mavis Staples. The tour kicks off June 4 and 5 with shows at the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery in Woodinville, Wash. It’ll wrap up July 17 in Gilford, N.H.
Although there are tour stops in Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska and Illinois, Minnesota missed out again, just as it did when Dylan announced last week that he’d picked the University of Tulsa, Okla., as the permanent home of his archives.
Dylan’s 37th studio album, called “Fallen Angels,” is due out May 20 and is said to be similar to last year’s “Shadows in the Night,” that featured pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra.
The last time Dylan played in Minnesota was a three-night stand at the Orpheum in November 2014.
