Bob Dylan and Neil Young heading to Ireland for joint gig in 2019

BOB DYLAN and Neil Young are heading to Ireland next year for a one-off gig in Kilkenny.

The music legends are teaming up for a special joint gig that will feature familiar hits from both of their extensive back catalogues as well as some once-in-a-lifetime collaborations.

Dylan and Young are set to perform at London’s annual British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park next year.

However, Peter Aiken of Aiken Promotions has now confirmed to Morning Ireland that the legendary pair will also head over to Ireland for another one-off performance.

They are set to take to the stage at Nowlan Park in Kilkenny on Sunday, July 14th, 2019, just a few days after their Hyde Park performance.

Tickets are likely to be in high demand and will go on sale at 9am this coming Monday morning, December 17th.

Neil Young fans over in Ireland will be hoping for a more enjoyable experience than his last visit to the Emerald Isle.

The veteran rocker played in Dublin back in 2013 with his bad Crazy Horse but left fans disappointed after leaving several of his biggest hits off the playlist.

By contrast, anyone who attended one of the intimate gigs Bob Dylan put on for his fans in Dublin and Cork back in 2017 were left mesmerised by a series of performances that ranked among the very best in recent memory involving the songwriting legend.
