Don't expect Dylan to give any of himself.

I saw him 2 or 3 times and he seemed bored .
He changed the melody to almost every song he sang so much that I could only recognize them by the lyrics.

Sounds like a great thing to pay 500 bucks for.

We had great seats, front row to the side, level with the stage. If I had a tennis ball with me I could have hit Bob with it easy enough.

He sat behind the piano all night, sometimes his keys added oomph to the song, but occasionally he appeared to be playing an altogether different song to the rest of the band. Band are tight enough (drummer is a beast) but it must be a hard thing to try and follow Bob around a setlist I'd say.

He played "It Ain't Me Babe" early on which was a highlight for me, as were "Love Sick", "Don't Think Twice", "Thunder on the Mountain" and he finished the main set with a cool version of "You Gotta Serve Somebody".

He did however manage to turn one of the most beautiful songs in his catalogue into a flat, boring dirge. Seriously - he turned "Tangled Up in Blue" into a piss-break song. :shake:

All in all it was a good but not great night. As expected no band introductions, no words for the audience at all, but plenty of Bob. Struggling to justify the $200 bucks per ticket I paid, but then again if that's the last time I ever see him (and I suspect it will be) then I'm glad I went. He still puts on an OK show for a 77 year old.

Sounds about right. All of it.

$200? Yow.

That review seems pretty reasonable. He's been messing with arrangements for decades, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I used to follow his setlists and bootlegs religiously, but faded away around 2005-06 (I am still a nutjob fan, I just stopped keeping up with the new shows) due to the inconsistency.

I was the same between 97 and probably 2010. Even the better shows have geriatric wanderings.

I miss Larry Campbell but I'm glad Charlie Sexton is back.

I stopped liking him live once he started playing those awful circus keys. Saw some great shows 1994-2003

Yeah, that was what tipped the scales for me too. What a dreadful sound. Thankfully he ditched it after a few years.
