Bob Dylan has spent the better part of the past two decades in a wanderlust mood, touring the country constantly. Dylan is taking a break starting in early May but when he returns he's bringing Wilco and My Morning Jacket on the road with him.

Dylan, Wilco and MMJ will embark on the AmericanaramA Festival of Music starting June 26 in West Palm Beach, Fla. The tour makes its way for two Illinois stops July 11 at Peoria's Chiefs Stadium and July 12 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview. In addition to being home for the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer club, Toyota Park has become a concert destination in recent years, most notably the Crossroads Music Festival. It's easy to reach via car or public transit and the chance to see Dylan, Wilco and MMJ on the same bill will be enough to spur fans to buy tickets when pre-sale tickets begin April 24. The Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Ryan Bingham will join the tour on select dates and the full lineup should be announced later today.
