Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson have teamed up for an American tour with a sporty touch - all of their shows will be at baseball parks.

THE BOB DYLAN SHOW, a 22-date tour of minor-league parks, opens on 6 August (04) in Cooperstown, New York, home of the BASEBALL HALL OF FAME.

WILLIE NELSON, who has never toured with Dylan, is also on the bill, along with Western-swing act HOT CLUB OF COWTOWN.

Dylan says, "What we aim to do with this your is hit the ball out of the park, touch all the bases and get home safely."
