SALT LAKE CITY — Bob Dylan's "Never Ending Tour" came to an end in July, but the singer-songwriter is preparing for back-to-back performances in Salt Lake City as part of his newly announced fall 2017 tour.

The performance, "Bob Dylan and his Band plus Mavis Staples," will be held at the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater on Oct. 17-18 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 15.

Fresh off her own tour, Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Mavis Staples will be joining Bob Dylan for the remainder of his fall schedule starting in Salt Lake City.

Staples is a prominent American civil rights activist, actress and singer of gospel and soul, well-known for her years performing with her family band The Staple Singers. Her upcoming album "If All I Was Was Black" will be released on Nov. 17, 2017.

Dylan, a multiple Grammy winner and one of the most prolific American songwriters of the past 50 years, released his most recent album "Triplicate" in March 2017 to favorable reviews. "Triplicate" was a triple-disc cover album of classic American music.

In October 2016, Dylan was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature, but declined attendance to the ceremony.
