Bob Dylan will be touring with My Morning Jacket and Wilco this summer as the Americanarama Festival of Music.

An announcement for the tour appeared on Dylan's website today, alongside the festival's logo, with a slogan "Meet me there – Beat me there!" In addition to Dylan and his band and the other two headliners, additional artists including the Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Ryan Bingham will be joining the show at select venues.

How Dylan Took Flight

My Morning Jacket's Jim James first dropped news of the tour on Thursday night in a Record Store Day preview interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, saying that his band would be touring with Dylan and another "beloved band."

Dylan's website lists 26 dates with Wilco beginning on June 26th in West Palm Beach, Florida, and wrapping up in Mountain View, California, on August 4th. My Morning Jacket performs at all but one: the band will miss the July 27th show in Wantagh, New York, while singer Jim James performs at the Newport Folk Festival. Pre-sale tickets for the Americanarama tour will be available starting Wednesday morning, April 24th. Full details about the North American tour are expected to emerge at noon on Monday.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
