Bob Dylan to play Ithaca College Nov. 17

Sep 10, 2019

After a six-year hiatus, the “Never-Ending Tour” will return to Ithaca this fall, when Bob Dylan and His Band perform at Ithaca College on Nov. 17. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $55-$85 and will go on sale here on Sept. 20. 

Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature. The prolific musician is the first Nobel winner to have forged a career primarily as a singer-songwriter. What's more, he's also the first American to have won the prize in more than two decades. Not since novelist Toni Morrison won in 1993 has an American claimed the prize.

The mountain hamlet of Woodstock in upstate New York was well known as an artists' colony even before the mid-'60s influx of musicians. In fact, it was known well enough among the musicians who lived there, particularly Bob Dylan, that it lent its name to the famous festival that actually took place many miles away.
