Time Out says

Gruff folk poet Bob Dylan and his band return to Chicago, offering another chance to see what the chameleonic musician is up to these days. Last year, Dylan released his first collection of original songs since 2012, providing some new sets of serpentine lyrics for fans to unravel. The highlight of Rough and Rowdy Ways is a nearly 17-minute track called " Murder Most Foul," which unpacks the assassination of John F. Kennedy against a gentle piano melody. It's always difficult to determine whether Dylan will stick to his new material or dig into his catalog, but that's simply part of the octogenarian's appeal. His voice isn't quite what it used to be, but it's still impressive to see a living legend exploring and reinterpreting his catalog with the help of a killer backing band. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Dylan before, don't think twice about snagging tickets.
