Update (08/29/23): Bob Dylan added a second Indianapolis performance to his tour schedule because his show scheduled for Oct. 16 sold out quickly. Dylan will now play Murat Theatre at Old National Centre in downtown Indianapolis on Oct. 17.
INDIANAPOLIS — While we didn’t get three nights like Chicago, it was announced Monday that Bob Dylan himself will be making a stop this October in Indianapolis as part of his Fall 2023 “Rough and Rowdy Ways” tour.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Dylan began the tour in 2021 to promote his album of the same name. While the 10-time Grammy Award winner just wrapped a European leg of his tour, new dates throughout the Midwest and more were revealed Monday.
In an Instagram post on his official account, which featured a promotional poster showing a couple dancing in the shadows and a skeleton in a tophat holding a syringe, Dylan led fans to a link in his bio for a list of tour dates.
“Bob Dylan and His Band present the Rough and Rowdy Ways tour this fall in North America,” the post was captioned. “More dates will be posted soon. Don’t you dare miss it!”
