Truth to tell, I'm surprised 4 out of 5 of us made our choices on time. Man, that was some last-minute shit.

Bottle of Bread, looks like you and I bottomed out again. I got a few extra points on the last show though. It's all about those mysterious 20 pointers.

You may recall that I missed the last show I had a ticket for. Broke my heart. This morning I bought a good seat for the show in Waterbury CT, not far from where I live. Here's hoping I see this one. I bought my first edition of Tarantula with Christmas money, when it was a new arrival in our local book store. At 15 years-old I felt like a real hipster. The book makes as much sense to me now as it did then.

First found a cassette copy of Greatest Hits in my family home as a twelve year old. From there it grew. Saw him for the first time in a 1200 capacity venue in 1997-pre Time out of Mind. I was fifteen feet away from him the whole night. I've seen him 19 more times since then. I can't say I've ever seen an awful show in that time, some where the sound was awful (with Joni Mitchell in '98) but I have been fortunate. I don't know if anyone else has this bootleg, but Dec 10, 1978 from Charlotte NC is my birthday bootleg. Not everyone has one, kind of fun. I once changed planes in Charlotte, just to say I've been there. I also have the 2010 chocolate set (only sold at the Japanese venues) where each chocolate is wrapped in an album cover and the whole catalogue up to Tell tale Signs is included, and a hardcover first edition of Tarantula among my collection. I had a local video store that carried Hearts of Fire on VHS well into the 2000's that I frequently rented, and still have Hard to Handle on VHS. The speech about heroes is the best. Jimmy Oz, have fun at the Brisbane show. I'm still holding out hope for a tour return to the North Country before the end of November, but who knows. I got two shows last summer, so I doubt it will roll this way until next year. Interesting how the Sinatra songs are all but gone from the set list.

Hard to Handle was filmed in Sydney in 1986. Dylan at his best

The tour with Petty & the Heartbreakers is sometimes underrated. I saw a really hot show in Hartford, CT.

I saw him in oz with Patti in 92. The best shows were 1979 or1978 with a big band in Adelaide. They recorded a live record in japan. One of his best live ones. 1986 with tom petty in Adelaide and Austin Texas. A top show was at the Fox in Atlanta, He did the finest All along the watchtower I ever heard it went for 20 minutes. I missed Rolling thunder but love the recordings

I just logged in so I could apologize for dragging the whole squad down this tour, and then I read Jimmy's post. I too have every one of Bob's albums and a ton of boots. At 62, I also have seen great and not-so-great shows. The first 2 times I saw him he was doing the Rolling Thunder tour and yeah, it was every bit as good as they say. The low point was a show in 1992. I actually quit bothering with his shows for a few years. Then in 1995 he played a show nearby with Patti Smith as the opener. I went for Patti, but Bob's performance was stellar, and I kicked myself for doubting him. I guess I've seen him about 20 times total.

I have good seats for the Brisbane concert. The entertainment centre is a shit venue but checking the set lists should be a good night. I got hooked on Dylan when I was a 16 year old kid. Saw his first concert in England in the early 60s and have followed him ever since. I lost count the number of times I have seen him all over the world, But I can say I have seen him at his worse and best. I have every record plus heaps of boots. also more books then I can count,. I celebrate my 73rd birthday in a few weeks so bobby make it a good one

I had to fill in my form very quickly soon after midnight while finishing up at work, 1200 feet above the ground, with a full moon in my eye. Clearly I missed the point schism on that one!

Say Willie, A New Unexpected Song seems to offer zero points, so you might want to rethink that. Otherwise, glad to see everyone is on board well before the deadline.

My pool name implies a visual impairment, but it seems my judgement in picks is my true handicap this round. What a write off! Let's see what tour dates are added to the summer (Australia? More Asia?) so we can get back up again, cause we ain't a gonna grieve no more.

My friends, this is one mediocre tour for Pounds of Headlines. Were it not for skelly35, we'd look like a bunch of amateurs. There's always next time.

Sooo worth the wait. Especially with the Easter season upon us, I've been wearing that thing out. Can't say I really dug the film though. I saw a show recently at Massey Hall and the whole time just kept thinking about how awesome it would have been to be at the 1980 Gospel shows there (but I would have been 2 and probably not appreciated as much as today). They're shutting Massey Hall down for a multi year renovation and Gordon Lightfoot it closing it out for it's last show on Canada Day (it doesn't get more patriotic than that in the North Country fair). I hope it doesn't lose it's charm and access (you can literally just walk up to the lip of the stage). I have heard similar reviews about the banter at the Broadway shows, but like you said, the sound must have been great. I always listen to E Street radio on the Sirius XM in my car and they play a lot of great live stuff. Looks like Dylan is going light on the Sinatra so far on the new leg. It's kind of tripped up my choices.

Thanks for sticking with the team everyone. The Broadway show featured the best sound quality of any Springsteen show I've seen. As well it should have, considering the size of the venue and the price of the tickets. The music was great. The between-song patter was stiffer than it is at one of his concerts, more like he was reciting than conversing. Glad I went. So Willie, what do you think of the gospel box?
