With the new album from his son's band, the Wallflowers, in stores this week, Bob Dylan has just announced plans to launch a fall collegiate tour, starting on October 29 at the University of Madison in Wisconsin.
Aside from the tour, Dylan recently contributed a previously unreleased live cover of the Grateful Dead's Friend Of The Devil" to the "Stolen Roses" LP, which also featured Widespread Panic, Henry Rollins, and Elvis Costello performing classic tunes from the Dead canon.
Dylan has also agreed to record a track for the planned album celebrating the 50th anniversary of Sun Records, the Memphis label famous for seminal rock songs by Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, and Carl Perkins, among others (see "3EB, Aerosmith, Dylan Set For Sun Records Tribute").
