Bob Dylan, one of the greatest and most important musicians of the 20th century, is expected to arrive in Israel for a June 2009 performance, Yedioth Ahronoth has learned.
The man behind the performance is producer Shuki Weiss, who is also bringing Depeche Mode to Israel this May.
Dylan’s associates have already given an affirmative response regarding the show in Israel, and his arrival is now dependent upon his desire to conduct a European tour.
Dylan, who will celebrate his 68th birthday this summer, landed in Israel in September 1987 for two gigs at the Tel Aviv's Yarkon River and Jerusalem’s Sultan Pool.
The famous singer managed to amaze crowds even prior to his performance when he took a bus straight from Cairo to Tel Aviv and continued to Herzliya by taxi.
Dylan returned to Israel in 1993 and performed in Haifa, Tel Aviv and Beersheba.
