OK-everyone who sees Dylan can add they’re experience/ views/ observations on here. I saw him last night Monday 7th March –Seattle Paramount Theatre –First night of the tour. Dylan’s website –bobdylan.com under Tour has the set list posted the next day!!! http://bobdylan.com/live/spring2005setlists.html#20050307 OK-well Amos Lee is ok / jazzy—deep voice. Merle Haggard-was good-relaxed –funny—and in GOOD voice- He did a funny improv on the Ballad of Martha Stewart –that he said him and Bob are going to write it together---“ well Martha Stewart got out off jail –but they ain’t done with her yet—she’s a national threat (he said-bob added that line—hee hee) Dylan- well –he sounds good –as good as he has of late. Dylan was stage left—standing over a keyboard-leaning in to sing---he stands legs astride. He did a little shuffle to the middle of the stage with a microphone to do really good harmonica solos every now and again—you forget just how good he is on the harmonica. There was a guitar set up for him- he never used it. The bassist and drummer are the ones that have been with him for some time now (last album and the masked and anonymous film). He had a young shapely girl on fiddle/violin and a guy stage right on steel guitar and other stuff. The 2 guitar players I think are new---the one behind Dylan stage left-wears a hat and stratocaster was really good-all fire and reeling of blues licks –the other guy balding/handlebar mustache seemed perfunctory. The sound is very electric—country/blues. I wanted him on his acoustic, but even Mr. Tambourine Man was done in a new way---as he is known to do to his stuff, but good. A good show in all—well presented. Dylan seems energetic and focused. Just as an aside---if you are in Seattle checkout the EMP-Experience Music Project—the have a Dylan exhibition for $20—very good—hand written lyrics –signed album covers---some clips from what must be eat the document---one hilarious one of him in an alley reciting a painted advertisement over and over –twisting it so outta shape till he gets to—saying “knit me a cigarette”—amongst other things.—you have to see it--- Also interviews that must be from the soon to be screened Scorcsese stuff. Well worth it.
