Update: Unfortunately, this tour has been canceled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. See here for more information regarding refunds.

Bob Dylan is returning to Japan for 14 shows in Tokyo and Osaka, between April 1st and 21st!

The venues he will be playing in Japan have a capacity of just 2,000-3,000 people (in the multi-million metropolis of Osaka and Tokyo).

Thus, it’s not surprising that tickets prices aren’t exactly cheap: ¥19,000 (approx. US$ 175) for general admission and ¥25,000 (approx. US$230) for seats.

Ticket Sale

All shows (except NHK Hall show)
Standing tickets can be bought on the official English Ticket Pia sites here:

Tokyo shows
Osaka shows

Tickets can be purchase from overseas and with non-Japanese credit cards. They have to be picked up at a Seven Eleven in Japan, before going to the show. There is no collection deadline.

2F seat tickets cannot be bought on the English sites, so you will have to buy them through Japanese sites or other channels such as a ticket shopping service (for example Tickets Galore) or resale sites (for example Stubhub or Viagogo).

Final NHK Hall Tokyo show (April 24th)
Tickets are first sold through UDO Artists pre-order sales (from Feb 17th; only in Japanese).
General sale (and with it probably English sale) will start on March 6th.

Tipp: If you don’t live in Japan, you might need help from a proxy service such as Tickets Galore Japan to purchase tickets through the lotteries, or later general sale.
