The old fella seems to have a thing for playing live - he never stops...

Bob Dylan is set to embark on a mammoth US tour, kicking off on August 6 in NEW YORK.

The folk legend will be touring with country heavyweight Willie Nelson over the 22 dates.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Bob Dylan made a rare outdoor appearance in the UK on Sunday (June 20) as the headliner of the annual Fleadh festival.

The event at London Finsbury Park took a year out in 2003 because no headliner could be found, but this year’s crowds dodged heavy rain to see the star played a selection of his hits, including ‘Highway 61 Revisited’, ‘Maggie’s Farm’ and ‘Like A Rolling Stone‘.
