Bob Dylan is considering a gig in Swansea to mark the centenary of Dylan Thomas’s birth in 2014, parliament has heard.
Geraint Davies, Labour MP for Swansea West, mentioned the possibility during a discussion in the commons.
A host of Dylan Thomas-related events will take place in Wales next year to mark the centenary.
Mr Davies said: “Bob Dylan named himself after Dylan Thomas. We in Swansea will celebrate the centenary of Dylan Thomas’s birth in 2014, and I have asked Bob Dylan whether he would be prepared to give a centenary concert in Swansea, in order that he could blend his music with Dylan Thomas’s poetry.
“Sony Music has come back and said that Mr Dylan is thinking very positively about the idea.
