After a six-year hiatus, the “Never-Ending Tour” will return to Ithaca this fall, when Bob Dylan and His Band perform at Ithaca College on Nov. 17. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $55-$85 and will go on sale here on Sept. 20.
The Nobel committee made a bit of a surprising announcement Thursday morning: Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for, according to the Swedish Academy, "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."
Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature. The prolific musician is the first Nobel winner to have forged a career primarily as a singer-songwriter. What's more, he's also the first American to have won the prize in more than two decades. Not since novelist Toni Morrison won in 1993 has an American claimed the prize.
