The veteran performer hopes to attract 7,500 people in July...

BOB DYLAN is reported to be playing a huge show at STIRLING CASTLE in SCOTLAND this summer.

According to BBC news, Dylan is lined up to play the 7,500 capacity venue near Edinburgh on July 13. Tickets for the open-air event go on sale next week.

A representative for the show’s promoter, Regular Music, said: “He will be massive and we are delighted to get him, but Stirling Castle really sells itself as a major music venue. When we are bidding for a band we always bring the managers into Stirling up the M9 to Craigforth.

“They look out of the window of the limo and across the fields to the castle and say: ‘Wow, are we really going to be playing there?'”

Dylan is also lining-up a show at the Liverpool Docks for later in the year.
