Bob Dylan has just updated his upcoming fall run with a total of 10 new East Coast stops -- including a new date in Philly and an extended residency in the "Big Apple." Dylan's itinerary now includes a November 21st show at The Met Philadelphia and a nine-show run at New York's Beacon Theatre starting on November 3rd. Dylan and his band hit the road on October 11th playing Irvine, California's UC Irvine at Bren Events Center.

Bob Dylan says he's been around long enough to know how to weather both personal and career dips and valleys: "I've come through good times and bad times, y'know? So, I'm not fooled by 'good times/bad times'; I've see the bottom, too. So, y'know, if you can work, y'know, that's the most. . . all you can ask. . . in this day and age, you can't take that for granted. Just to work is. . . to be able to work is what a person should strive after."
