The concert takes place just three days after Dylan’s 69th birthday, picking up on a tradition of Dylan’s of visiting Israel on his birthday begun in the early 1970s.

The concert will mark Dylan’s first in the Jewish state since he performed three shows in 1993 in Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Beersheba.

Dylan’s first concerts in Israel took place in 1987 in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
