Elsewhere, a new museum dedicated to Bob Dylan is set to open in Oklahoma next year.

The Bob Dylan Center in Tulsa will open its doors on May 10, 2022, and promises fans the chance to “access and interact with more than 100,000 exclusive cultural treasures” from the legendary singer’s archive.

A story also emerged from Ohio this month, where a man returned his copy of Bob Dylan’s ‘Self Portrait’ album 48 years late.

Howard Simon took out his copy of the 1970 album from the University Heights library in the spring of 1973, when he was 14 years old. As the library revealed on Instagram, Simon returned his copy this week along with a letter explaining what took him so long.

He wrote: “As a recent retiree, I am taking the opportunity to turn my attention to some of the many vignettes of life that by dint of career and family have been neglected these many years,” adding: “So it’s quite late, and I’m quite sorry!”
