Bob Dylan has just announced five new Colorado stops to his ongoing "Never Ending Tour." When the upcoming jaunt hits the "Centennial State," Dylan is set for shows shows in Grand Junction, Dillon, and a two-night run in Denver. Tickets for the new concerts go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 20th at 10 a.m. local time via AXS.com.

The tour kicks off on May 14th in Spokane, Washington at First Interstate Center for the Arts. Along the way, Dylan and the band will play multi-night stops in Seattle, Oakland, and Los Angeles.

Paul McCartney recalled how the cross-pollination between the Beatles, the Byrds, and Bob Dylan worked back in the day: ["It was really a question of everyone admiring Dylan. And we felt, kind of honored that he admired us. We'd go to see him as the big guru, that was it, really. You'd find the Byrds would do '(Mr.) Tambourine Man' — and a lot of his other tunes, too — and they'd add that jangly thing to it, and then we'd pick up the jangly thing off them."] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . thing off them)
