Bob Dylan has today (May 14) been confirmed by organisers of this year’s World Expo in Spain, to perform at the event on June 23.

As previously reported on Uncut.co.uk, Bob Dylan had recorded a new version of his classic track “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” for use on adverts promoting the 2008 World Expo, and now the folk icon is set to perform it in person.

A local band Amaral have also recorded a Spanish version of the song.

The world fair in Spain’s northeastern city of Zaragoza has a theme of ‘water’ this year and the song includes the singer’s spoken comments on the importance of clean water across the world.

Iggy Pop, Alanis Morissette and Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballe are some of the other artists set to perform at the Expo.

The World Expo runs from June 14 to September 14.
