LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp will share the bill during a U.S. summer tour of minor league baseball parks.

The 22-date tour begins July 2 at the GCS Ballpark in Sauget, Illinois, and wraps August 15 at the Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton, California.

It marks the second time over the past 24 years that Dylan, Nelson and Mellencamp have shared the staged, according to a news release.

Most of the ballpark concerts will have general admission seating, with tickets priced at $67.50. Children under the age of 14 will be given free admittance if accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Tickets go on sale beginning May 2 at select ballpark box offices and through ticketmaster.com.

Dylan is touring arenas in the United Kingdom through early May. He also will perform back-to-back shows at the O2 in Dublin, Ireland. Stateside, he's scheduled to perform at the second annual Rothbury festival in Michigan on July 5.

Dylan's upcoming tour plans are in support of his forthcoming album "Together Through Life," due April 28 on Columbia.
