It seems pretty sure that there will be no UK dates this year, so I wouldn't be surprised if he skipped the isles altogether.

Summer Festival, il cartellone si ingrandisce. Torna Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan tornerà al Summer Festival: la sua presenza è stata confermata dal direttore artistico Mimmo D’Alessandro, che deve solo definire la data

Lucca, 19 febbraio 2012 - Fu proprio il grande artista americano, che ha ispirato e influenzato generazioni di musicisti in tutto il mondo, a inaugurare la prima edizione della manifestazione. Il 6 luglio 1998, in piazza Napoleone, a quell’eopoca ancora sede di un parcheggio per automobili e sgombrata per l’occasione. Una carriera cinquantennale con pochissime cadute di tono e dalla qualità ancora straordinaria, sia nei dischi sia nei concerti, che Dylan, da qualche anno, offre al suo pubblico senza soluzione di continuità, in quello che ha logicamente battezzato come «Neverending tour». Precursore, innovatore, iconoclasta della musica e delle parole, ha attraversato gli anni Sessanta dei sogni, i Settanta della violenza e della disillusione, gli Ottanta del disimpegno e i Novanta della difficile rinascita, battendosi per le più importanti cause sociali internazionali. Ma le sue parole raccontano storie e poesie che ormai si possono trovare anche sui libri di scuola: non a caso è stato un paio di volte in lizza (l’ultima volta lo scorso anno) per vincere il premio Nobel alla Letteratura.

Sure, but it does not say a specific date.

Indeed. Guess we'll have to wait a little bit longer. At least we know when he's NOT playing:

According to maggiesfarm.eu, he leaked some of last year's fall dates early, and they were confirmed.

I hadn't realized he was half of D'Alessandro & Galli. Good. Let's wait for the Italian dates then.

I just wonder! For a long time there have been speculation about a European festival tour in the summer, and now at least one concert in Italy seems halfway confirmed. Tom Petty is playing European festivals from June 7 til June 30. Could it be that Dylan will play the same festivals - maybe even on the same day?

Certainly not at the Lucca festival, since that is a "one act per day" affair. They might be on the same bill elsewhere, but I guess they're both headline acts, so I don't know how likely that is.

Seems like a dream to me that Dylan played a cracking gig in Dublin in Oct 2011

I'd certainly agree Cork was better than Dublin, Bob was on top form at the Marquee with the setlist, performance and atmosphere far superior

to me cork was so much better, i was up front in both, simple twist of fate in cork was incredible, not just that, longer set list, great atmosphere, bob in a great mood, dancing and moving those crazy legs. dublin was ok i guess, but cork was the best show i ever attended.
