Best known as the reluctant voice of a generation, Dylan rose to prominence in the early-to-mid 1960’s releasing many then-soon-to-be classic albums and songs including “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin’.”

The Minnesota Native has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has received eleven Grammy Awards.

Dylan most recently performed in Iowa at a 2012 show at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, but last appeared in Ames at Stephens Auditorium in 1996.

R&B singer Mavis Staples will open the show.
