Just days before the April 28 release of his new studio album, Together Through Life, Bob Dylan has announced a local stop on his upcoming tour. On July 13, Dylan will play the CONSOL Energy Park, home of the minor-league Washington Wild Things, along with fellow icons John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson.
Though we've heard mixed things -- OK, mixed bad things -- about Dylan's performance here last year at the New American Music Union festival, his previous performance at the Wild Things' park a couple of years back was an immensely enjoyable evening. Bob and ballpark hotdogs under the stars are a tough summertime combination to beat.
