According to multiple reports, Bob Dylan may be returning to Italy in July to play this year's “Lucca Summer Festival.” Dylan and his band previously performed at the premiere event on July 6, 1998, and was rumored to appear again in 2012, although that never came to pass.

“Mr. Tambourine Man,” the webmaster at the Italian Dylan fan site “Maggie’s Farm,” has provided links to online articles about the possible Lucca show. Below are some excerpts, translated from Italian using Google translate:
