Legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan is no stranger to the Buffalo area, but it's still exciting when a rock legend books a show here.
Dylan will stop at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18 in Shea's Performing Arts Center (646 Main St.) for a show with opener Mavis Staples.
Tickets, ranging in price from $52.50 to $119.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 6. They'll be available online at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
Recent stops at Artpark, Darien Lake and the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts are the last times local music fans have seen Dylan, who broke out in the 1960s and has steadily built his legacy since. It's easy to forget he's released three albums in the last three years; "Triplicate," which came out in March 2017, peaked at No. 37 on the Billboard Top 200.
This past weekend, Rolling Stone published an in-depth look at the rocky relationship between Dylan and producer Daniel Lanois, who worked together on Dylan's "career-reviving" record "Time Out of Mind" 20 years ago.
If you're looking for interesting set lists, here's one from Dylan's show in Kleinhans in 1965.
