It might not be the Rolling Thunder Review, but Bob Dylan’s June 20 show at Ramat Gan Stadium is beginning to fill up with special guests. First, Rickie Lee Jones, the veteran, American jazzy singer/songwriter and a favorite of local audiences on her many visits here, was added to the bill, performing her own set as well as joining Dylan for some duets.

Then on Monday, local rock sensation Assaf Avidan and the Mojos were announced as the show’s opening act. Avidan is one of the country’s most creative and electric performers, and will very well give the audience of Dylan fans a glimpse of what seeing the master in his 1966 prime might have been like.

The concert is slated to begin at 8:15 p.m. on the dot, with the gates opening at 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon.
