Bob Dylan has marked his 73rd birthday by announcing a tour around Australia and New Zealand.

Bob Dylan is heading down under again for a month long tour. He is set to play at the Brisbane Convention Centre on Monday 25 August.

For the first time in two decades Dylan has chosen to perform at smaller, more intimate venues.

The legendary musician appeals to the widest audience possible, with a career spanning over 60 years and an incredible 50 album releases.
