The prolific singer, songwriter and icon of the 1960s counterculture performs at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Event Center in Catonsville on Nov. 12. Dylan announced the gig, among many others at university venues this fall, via his website and social media earlier this week.
Dylan is the latest in a considerable list of major touring artists, including “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah and platinum-selling singer Fantasia, scheduled at UMBC Event Center in the nearly 19 months since it opened. General manager Tiffany Sun said the Event Center, which also hosts UMBC Retrievers basketball games, confirmed Dylan’s set in August. She noted that this and other recent high-profile shows, such as a sold-out performance by R&B quartet B2K, established the arena’s reputation for live music.
“We’ve really put ourselves on the map as a good concert venue within the market, and I’m excited for what’s to come,” she said.
Representatives for Columbia Records, Dylan’s current record label, did not immediately return The Sun’s request for comment.
Tickets, which range from $50 to $85 before fees, can be purchased at umbceventcenter.com. They go on sale Sept. 20, with a presale beginning the day before.
