Dylan plays concert in Tel Aviv

Bob Dylan also performed at London's Finsbury Park this month

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.

Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
