Folk legend Bob Dylan is apparently planning to return to Israel for a concert on June 20, according to a fan-run web site.
The concert has not yet been confirmed, but the web site reported that Dylan would take the stage for one night at the Ramat Gan Stadium, where Canadian singer Leonard Cohen played in 2009.
Dylan has played in Israel twice, in 1987 and 1993. In September 1987, he gave two concerts, on in Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park and the other at the Sultan's Pool in Jerusalem. In 1993, he played at the Tel Aviv cultural center.

The webpage redirects Israeli web users looking for chords to Dylan's songs to the webmaster's blog.
The music site, which supplies guitar chords and tabs of tens of Bob Dylan songs, including news and biographical information for the fervent fans, was founded by Danish music expert Eyolf Østrem several years ago, yet it was closed down in 2005 due to American copyright violations.
Since the site was officially shut down, it has run on unofficial mirror versions.
