Bob Dylan has performed his most famous hits at a much-awaited concert in Tel Aviv - but disappointed thousands of fans by not addressing them.

Among the hits he performed on Monday were Like a Rolling Stone, Tangled Up in Blue, and All Along the Watchtower.

Fan Daniel Levy, 21, called the star's music "more real, more authentic, more powerful than what we have today". But Yosef Speizer, 28, said Dylan's apparent detachment was bizarre and "the whole thing was strange."

The concert was the singer's third in Israel, following previous gigs in 1987 and 1993. Dylan, who is Jewish, enjoys a loyal following in the country.

Meanwhile, the Blowin' In The Wind singer - who turned 70 last month - wowed the crowds who braved the rain to see him perform at the London Feis Festival at the weekend, performing a string of his classic songs.
