Bob Dylan has canceled his summer tour, which included a July 3 stop at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta.
The musician announced via social media on Tuesday that “in the interest of public health and safety,” the decision was made to cancel after “many attempts to try and reschedule these shows for a workable timeframe this year.”
The concert would have been Dylan’s first Atlanta appearance since a show at the Fox Theatre in 2015. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Hot Club of Cowtown were set as openers.
Dylan, who turns 79 on May 28, is releasing a new album, “Rough and Rowdy Ways,” on June 19.
Tickets refunds are available at point of purchase.
