Bob Dylan will hit the road for a six-week North American tour in support of his forthcoming Columbia album "Love and Theft," due Sept. 11 in North America. The trek, beginning Oct. 5 in Spokane, Wash., and wrapping Nov. 24 in Boston, will hit Dylan's usual grab bag of arenas, theaters, and college campuses.

"Love and Theft," Dylan's first studio album since 1997's Grammy-winning "Time Out of Mind," features the artist's touring band of guitarist Charlie Sexton, bassist Tony Garnier, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell, and drummer David Kemper. Album track "Po' Boy" is currently available for free download via the Windows Media format.
