Bob Dylan is rolling back into the ’Burgh.

The legendary singer-songwriter and his band will perform at 8 p.m. Nov. 10 in the UPMC Events Center at Robert Morris University in Moon.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 20 at bobdylan.com, ticketmaster.com and the events center box office. Box office hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Tickets are $52.50, $69.50 and $89.50. Students can save $25 on tickets by presenting valid ID at the box office.

Dylan, 78, has been a major pop culture figure for more than 50 years, dating back to the 1960s with anthemic songs like “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin,” which became counterculture standards for Vietnam War protests and the civil rights movement.

His oeuvre includes dozens of studio, live, compilation and bootleg albums; forays into various musical styles including country; and collaborations with other musicians, including The Band and The Traveling Wilburys, a supergroup which featured George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.

His latest studio album is “Triplicate,” released in 2017.

Dylan has earned 10 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award. The Oscar was for Best Song from a Motion Picture in 2001 for “Wonder Boys,” shot in Pittsburgh and adapted from writer Michael Chabon’s book of the same name, inspired by Chabon’s experiences as a University of Pittsburgh student.

Dylan is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2016, on the strength of his poetic lyrics, he became the first musician to be awarded a Nobel Prize for literature.

He’s also an author and visual artist.
