Tickets on sale for first Dylan date in Brussels in over five years
Bob Dylan has announced an early Christmas present for his legions of fans in Belgium – his first appearance here in over five years.
Dylan, who recently turned 81, will appear at Forest National in Brussels on 15 October as part of his latest world tour The Rough and Rowdy Ways.
The keenly awaited concert and tour follows the release in 2020 of the artist's 39th studio album Rough and Rowdy Ways.
Tickets for the Brussels gig are expected to be snapped up quickly. They’re priced from €101.50 to €129.50, although the first category has already sold out.
The tour forms part of what has been named his ‘Never Ending Tour’, Dylan's live schedule that started in 1988.
It includes nine UK dates and six shows in Germany as Dylan continues to expand the European leg of his ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’ worldwide tour 2021-2024.
The concert will differ from his many previous visits to Brussels because this time Dylan has banned smartphones from being taken into the concert venues.
The move also aims to prevent unauthorised footage of gigs being released online. Concertgoers will have to lock their devices into specially provided Yondr pouches in order to watch the music legend. Phones remain in the possession of their owner, but cannot be accessed.
In order to use the phone, or in case of an emergency, the person must return to the 'lock and unlock' station, and then move to the 'phone access zone’.
