Bob Dylan has canceled his upcoming 14-date tour of Japan due to the Coronavirus, according to Best Classic Bands. Dylan, who had announced the tour back in October, released a statement explaining, “We regretfully announce that shows have been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologize for the announcement and we look forward to your continued understanding.”
There has been no word whether Dylan plans to reschedule the dates, which were to take in a total of nine show at Tokyo's Zepp DiverCity, three nights at Osaka's Zepp Namba, and Tokyo's Zepp Tokyo.
Bob Dylan says he’s been around long enough to know how to weather both personal and career dips and valleys: “I’ve come through good times and bad times, y’know? So, I’m not fooled by 'good times/bad times'; I’ve see the bottom, too. So, y’know, if you can work, y’know, that's the most. . . all you can ask. . . in this day and age, you can’t take that for granted. Just to work is. . . to be able to work is what a person should strive after.”
