Bob Dylan announced over the weekend that he’ll  join with indie rockers Wilco and My Morning Jacket  this summer to offer a concert experience dubbed Americanarama.

26 dates have been announced, beginning June 26 at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida and ending on August 4 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. Country roots artist Ryan Bingham and Richard Thompson Electric Trio will appear on select dates, with more artists expected to be announced.

One would hope for some Rolling Thunder-style collaborations, including a group singalong on “I Shall Be Released” or “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.” Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy performed Dylan’s “Simple Twist Of Fate” on the 2007 I’m Not There Soundtrack, which also featured Jim James of My Morning Jacket’s impressive cover of “Goin’ To Acapulco.”
