Jams' Michelson Conceives Dylan's Tour Of Minor League Ballparks

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire)-

Bob Dylan will take "The Bob Dylan Show" on a 22-date concert tour of U.S. minor

league baseball parks beginning August 6 in Cooperstown, NY, the home of Baseball's Hall Of Fame, and winding down September 4 in Kansas City, KS. Joining Bob Dylan on the tour are Willie Nelson and The Hot Club Of Cowtown. Although Dylan and Nelson have appeared at shows together over the years, "The Bob Dylan Show" marks the first time they will be touring together.

According to Jam Productions' Jerry Mickelson, who conceived of the idea for the tour and is presenting many of its shows, "Bob Dylan has always brought his music to people wherever they are. Having produced several of Bob Dylan's concerts in these types of venues over the years, we found that the special atmosphere of a minor league ballpark adds a unique element to his already great shows. A complete tour of these ballparks will have fans, young and old, experiencing a great evening of music."

"What we aim to do with this tour is hit the ball out of the park, touch all the bases and get home safely," added Dylan.
