At first it seemed that pigs would fly before Bob Dylan would accept his Nobel Peace Prize, but now, CNN reports he’ll receive his prize in person.
The Swedish Academy has reached an agreement to give Dylan the Literature award after initially being unable to get in touch with the singer and have his seat empty at the ceremony.
Fast forward five months, and the singer will accept the diploma and medal while he is in Sweden for two concerts this weekend.
There will be no media present at the small event, according to Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy.
“Please note that no Nobel Lecture will be held,” Danius adds. “The Academy has reason to believe that a taped version will be sent at a later point.”
The recorded lecture is crucial and required for Dylan to receive the prize money of $900,000.
Do you think Bob Dylan will finally accept his award, or will there be another no-show? Let us know in the comments below.
