    Wow. What a life that guy has. Besides all the art, just constantly touring.

    I have to scrape together all my wits and saving just to visit one stop on any average tour of his.

    Nope they are the same now. Only one standard. Here's hoping Bob is moving out of this particular phase.....

    For Dylan the setlists are surprisingly stable, compared to last year. While I would have gone if this tour came closer, I am not really saddened that I will not be able to make it. I was in Frankfurt last year and it was great!

    Looks like His Bobness has abandoned the Chairman material, except one.

    Thank goodness!

    He is headlining Fuji Rock Festival along with Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, N.E.R.D., Chvrches and the like. Can’t imagine this is going to go over well.

    I'm kinda bummed about that.

    I would happily see him again if he comes anywhere close to me.
    And funny enough, I actually thought the standards were the highlight of the show that I saw last year. They were all very short songs that I could usually live without, but it was awesome to see Bob take centre stage and sing his heart out.

    Second show on the tour, Bob subs out "Don't Think Twice" for the gorgeous "Once Upon a Time", the rest of the setlist remains the same. So that's two Sinatra songs instead of one. Looking solely at that song swap, I'd rather hear 2018 Bob sing "Once Upon a Time" than "Don't Think Twice" which he's been singing since 1963.

    Is he playing with the same band as last year when he was over here in Europe?

    As at times I wish he would pick up a new band, like Neil Young with The Promise Of The Real, to inject some sort of change....

    I seen him last year in the Echo Arena in Liverpool, my girlfriend payed £150 for 2 tickets as a birthday present for me
    Very tedious concert, sang like he could not be bothered and was trying to get the song over and done with, played songs differently and old songs that were not his
    Finished off with Ballad of a thin man that sounded nothing like the original, i thought he might be being sarcastic when he sang "theres something going on here but you dont know what it is"(yes i know thats in the song) , in fact it was like this with all his songs, music sounded nothing like the original and he cut songs short by missing lyrics out
    It was dissapointing to say the least, i expected better even though he,s getting on now
    If you go to see him live dont be expecting too much, you can brag you have seen him live (but thats about it)
    Thanks Mr Zimmerman for making my girlfriend £150 lighter, i could of bought some vinyl instead

    I had almost the exact same experience ten years ago. Luckily I had seen the old coot three times (all great to incredible shows, I must add) in advance around the turn of the millenium, so I thought I was prepared. Sadly, I under-estimated the course of time and Bobby D's wilful nature. Worst gig I've ever been to by a long shot. Still, the memories linger on.
