Big Gigs for July 5-11

  • Updated: July 8, 2013 - 10:23 AM

Bob Dylan hasn’t shown any sign of wanting to wrap up his never-ending tour, but he has displayed a penchant for keeping it interesting. His latest outing is his greatest in quite a while. They’re calling it the Americanarama tour, featuring two of the most celebrated twang-rooted rock bands of the past decade, Wilco and My Morning Jacket, along with veteran American-roots-flavored British folk-rock vet Richard Thompson. Wilco and MMJ each played 12 to 15 songs apiece in the tour’s first date, mostly their own fans’ favorites. Dylan is still mostly playing piano on stage and has a new guitarist, Roomful of Blues co-founder Duke Robillard, who replaced Charlie Sexton. This one sounds so promising, it’s worth a two-night stay in Bob’s home state. (5:30 p.m. Tue., Bayfront Festival Park, downtown Duluth, $68, Ticketmaster.com; and 5:30 p.m. Wed., Midway Stadium, St. Paul, sold out) Chris Riemenschneider
