Bob Dylan has unveiled a new series of fall U.S. tour dates that will follow his previously announced shows on October 13 in Valley Center, California, and October 14 in Las Vegas. The new concerts run from an October 17-18 stand in Salt Lake City through a November 16 concert in Boston.

RollingStone.com reports that gospel/soul great Mavis Staples, who served as Dylan’s opening act during his 2016 summer trek, will support the folk-rock legend on all of the newly announced dates.

Tickets for almost all the concerts will go on sale to the general public this Friday, September 15. The exceptions are the Valley Center and Las Vegas gigs, which are already available, and an October 24 date in Ames, Iowa, which will go on sale on Saturday, September 16.

Dylan continues to promoting his latest studio album, Triplicate, a three-disc collection featuring tunes previously recorded by Frank Sinatra.

Prior to the start of the tour, a new Dylan documentary called Trouble No More that focuses on his “born again” period of the late 1970s and early ’80s will get its world premiere on October 2 in New York City as part of the 55th annual New York Film Festival.

The one-hour movie features newly restored concert footage from 1980 shows in Buffalo, New York, and Toronto during the final leg of Bob’s Gospel Tour.
