The 'virtual' concert will also include Dylan's reunion with guitarist [b]Mike Bloomfield[/b] playing 'Like A Rolling Stone' and 'Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar' in San Francisco in 1980 - they had last collaborated in 1965.

Three months later Bloomfield took a drug overdose and was found dead in his car, aged 37.

Radio 2 is the station which airs Dylan's weekly show 'Theme Time Radio Hour'.

The Dream Dylan Concert will air on Radio 2 on October 6 at 8pm.
