Bob Dylan set for Israel concert

    Bob Dylan is to perform in Israel for the third time this June, according to tour news on a fan website.

    The American singer-songwriter, born Robert Allen Zimmerman to Jewish parents in Minnesota, is expected to perform at the Ramat Gan stadium which has recently seen shows by Leonard Cohen and Rod Stewart.

    Famous for his counter-cultural anthems in the 1960s, his work includes the hits Blowin' in the Wind and The Times They Are a-Changin'.

    Mr Dylan previously played concerts in Israel in 1987 and 1993.

    He became a born-again Christian in the 1970s and released several albums of gospel-themed music. In 2009 he made a charity Christmas album featuring traditional carols including Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem.

    Following the clash on the Gaza-bound flotilla last May, a Bob Dylan website was targeted by anti-Israel protesters who attempted to prevent Israelis from accessing the site.
