The 73-year-old musician will play the Pori Jazz festival’s Kirjurinluoto stage on Thursday 17 July. The west coast festival, which has struggled to maintain strong ticket sales in recent years, announced the concert on its website.

Dylan last played Pori Jazz back in 1996. Soul singer Bettye LaVette will be on the same bill for this summer’s concert, and tickets to see the show are on sale at 70 euros.
