DURHAM — Bob Dylan’s tour of minor-league baseball parks is coming to a North Carolina stadium.

Dylan, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp will perform Tuesday at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Dylan began a tour of minor league baseball parks in 2004. Tickets to the Durham concert were still available as of Monday night.

Mellencamp and Nelson joined forces in 1985 for the first Farm Aid benefit concert in Champaign, Ill., at which Dylan also performed. The tour marks the first time since that performance that the three musicians have shared the same stage.
