When Bob Dylan last toured New Zealand, it was billed as a 'once in a lifetime' experience. And, for all those who went, it was. It's just that now fans will be get the opportunity to have another such experience, because the legendary tambourine man will return to NZ for two shows this August.

After choosing Hamilton for his North Island stop in 2014, Dylan will this time visit Auckland for a show at Spark Arena before heading down to Christchurch two days later. He will draw on his incredible 60-year career — which spans 36 studio albums and countless hits — for the shows, so you better start praying to the music gods that your favourite makes it onto the setlist.

Dylan may be 76 years old, but he has certainly showed no signs of slowing down as he approaches 80. In 2016 he was awareded the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature and, just this year, he oddly released his own whisky.

But still, it could be the last chance you get to see this living legend perform live.
