I first heard rumblings of Bob Dylan doing a summer tour last week, and today I was overjoyed to hear that it is true – he will be joined by Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham for a festival of music being called AmericanaramA! The tour will kick off in late June in Florida and work its way up to the Northeast before heading out west for a few dates. Bob Dylan is one of my favorite artists of all time, and I have never seen him live. He is also one of now two older acts I will hopefully get to catch this summer (the other one being the Rolling Stones). The Bob Dylan show in Camden will take place on Sunday, July 28th and will be presented in collaboration with the XPoNential Music Festival, the annual festival hosted by the University of Pennsylvania’s radio station, 88.5 WXPN. Every year they seem to put together a lineup even better than the last, and this year is truly exceptional. View the full lineup here and listen to a playlist below!

This all has me thinking about music legends and the question of – despite ticket costs, potential travel, and other circumstances – who would be the artist you would overlook all factors and drop everything to go see? Let us know in the comments!
