As part of a series of intimate (quickly selling out) UK shows from Bob Dylan And His Band, three further dates have been announced which will see the Nobel Prize winning American songwriter embark on a three-night residency in London this coming April.

Bob DylanBob Dylan adds new dates to UK tour schedule

In addition to his shows in Cardiff, Bournemouth, Nottingham, Glasgow, Liverpool and London's SSE Arena in May, Bob Dylan will be heading to the London Palladium on April 28th, 29th and 30th. Tickets are already sold out for the Cardiff, Bournemouth and Glasgow shows.

Ahead of his UK tour dates, he'll be touring the rest of Europe with shows in Norway, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Luxembourg and, of course, Sweden - the latter of which will finally be graced with his presence for the first time since winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in October. The 'Blowin' In The Wind' singer didn't actually attend the December 10th acceptance ceremony, but he was praised highly in a speech read by Swedish Academy's Professor Horace Engdahl.

'It ought not to be a sensation that a singer/songwriter now stands recipient of the literary Nobel Prize. In a distant past, all poetry was sung or tunefully recited', he said. 'If people in the literary world groan, one must remind them that the gods don't write, they dance and they sing.'

The singer will also be unveiling his very first 3-disc album entitled 'Triplicate' on March 31st 2017, featuring original songs and new cover recordings. It comes less than a year after the release of his thirty-seventh studio album 'Fallen Angels' which he released in May last year.

Tickets for the new dates will be available on February 10th 2017.
