Dylan will kick things off with a headlining performance September 16 at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Texas.

The singer’s run of East Coast shows kicks off September 19 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and continues through the first week of October. Other highlights include stops at The Arena at Gwinnett Center near Atlanta (September 22), the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md. (September 28), the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Conn. (September 30), Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H. (October 5), and the RIT Gordon Field House in Rochester, N.Y. (October 9).

Joining Dylan and his band for the U.S. tour are Amos Lee and Elvis Costello.

Complete info on presale and onsale dates for all shows is available at the singer’s web site.

Dylan, a career-spanning, three-CD retrospective of the singer’s music, will be released October 1. The collection chronicles four decades of Dylan’s career and includes 51 tracks which were chosen in part by fans who lobbied for their favorites through the web site dylan07.com.

Two additional versions of the set will be released at the same time. The first is a deluxe edition featuring the three discs in a cloth covered case, an extensive booklet of classic and rare Dylan images and 10 limited edition postcards highlighting pivotal moments of the singer’s career. The second is a single disc edition featuring 18 tracks.

Dylan has also been bitten by the “re-version” bug. The singer, who is probably the most unlikely person in the industry to issue a remix, recently re-released the classic track “Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine),” from his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde with additional production work by Mark Ronson, the mastermind behind Amy Winehouse’s hits “Rehab” and “You Know I’m No Good.”
