Legendary American singer-songwriter will perform in Israel on June 20, Ynet has learned, following long negotiations with Israeli producer Marcel Avraham.
The concert will be held at the Ramat Gan Stadium as part of Dylan's world tour, and its Israeli producer will be Gadi Oron.
Many efforts have been made in recent years to bring the veteran musician to the Holy Land. Dylan and his band members are expected to land in Israel several days before the concert.
Dylan, one of the most important musicians in modern music, will celebrate his 70th birthday in May. He will arrive in Israel as part of a world tour, which will be launched in Asia in about two weeks and will end in Demark in late June.
This will be Dylan's third concert in Israel. He performed here in the past in 1987 and 1993, and visited the country during the 1960s.
The concert is expected to include songs from Dylan's entire career. It is unclear how long he plans to stay in Israel and whether he intends on visiting different tourist sites across the country.
