Bob Dylan will be stopping in Stockholm for his latest tour, where it's reported he will finally be accepting his Nobel prize for literature which he won five months ago.

The 75-year-old singer songwriter initially refused to acknowledge the award, and then didn't turn up at the banquet and ceremony because of "pre-existing commitments".

He plays Stockholm's Waterfront on Saturday and Sunday, and the Nobel Academy's permanent secretary Sara Danius has said members of the Academy will be attending to present him with his medal and diploma.

In line with his wishes, Danius said there will be no media present at the exchange. 

If Dylan wants to claim his £725,000 cash prize, however, he is required to give a lecture on literature within six months of the ceremony. While he won't be delivering his lecture this weekend, "the Academy has reason to believe that a taped version will be sent at a later point".

In December, Dylan's friend and occasional collaborator Patti Smith read a gracious acceptance speech on his behalf at the banquet.

"Not once have I ever had the time to ask myself: 'Are my songs literature?'," he wrote.

Bob Dylan plays the 3Arena on May 11th.
