I was at two of the Oakland shows. Here's my review: T.H.C. "Things Have Changed". Same songs, different nights. Same set list, different show. Same band, different suits. T.H.C. The key of G. Bob Dylan comes out of the shadows of night into the performers’ light. This is true theatre. Audience sits back to listen with pure enjoyment watching Dylan interpret himself. He is full of energy and confident, and his voice roars his lyrics with assurance without anticipation. A few people, with expectations of what they want to hear Bob play, are squirming in their seats as he showcases some unfamiliar tunes, and many songs from his recent album “Tempest”. He’s never performed the cover song from that album live. The real hit from this album is “Duquesne Whistle” written by Bob Dylan and Robert Hunter. Bob sings the song from his piano with his legs kicking out, like us, he wants to dance to this. Many of the songs speak of current times and moods told in poetic enigmas. Songs like “Pay In Blood” and "Long and Wasted Years" are really eloquent poems set to music to garner our attention. “Early Roman Kings” sounds like the Yardbirds' “I’m A Man”. Dylan touches our hearts playing his new version of “Tangled Up In Blue”. He sings with a mike from center stage, plays harp, and moves to the piano. T.H.C. The highlight of these nights for me is “Spirit On The Water”. I love the musical melodic arrangement of this. Bob Dylan uses his voice as an instrument and sings with rock confidence. His band backing him are professional and fresh each night. The lead guitar playing of Charlie Sexton, who came from the Texas rock blues band, Arc Angels, Tony Garnier, as Dylan’s stand-up and all-around bass player, rhythm guitarist Stu Kimball, George Recile on drums, and multi-instrumentalist Donnie Herron, make their performance sound like all the other nights previous to this one were just rehearsals for this show as they’re all putting out their best and making it new, each night. T.H.C. For an encore, Bob Dylan changes the mood of the show and showcases a new song that’s an old song, a new arrangement for one of Frank Sinatra’s old standards, "Stay With Me". Dylan's next new album is “Shadows Of The Night” covering Frank Sinatra's songs, to be released in 2015. T.H.C.

No emotion in these last tours. The competition is out, and in the first show, you'll know the winner. I prefer the lower position, and hear another songs

Hey our team was # 4 for the summer tour pool and # 1 team on the last day of the summer pool. Congratulations all! I was at this show and here's my review: Bob Dylan and his band played the Shoreline Amphitheatre In Mountain View, California, next door to Google headquarters, on Sunday night August 4, 2013. It is the last stop on his Americanamara tour. Three acts open for Dylan, Ryan Bingham and his band, My Morning Jacket and Wilco. Special guest Bob Weir joins My Morning Jacket in the middle of their set and performs Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", some Grateful Dead tunes, and sings along on a Bruce Springsteen cover. My Morning Jacket's song "The Way That He Sings" sums up what they're about. I haven't previously heard any of these bands and Wilco is an impressive surprise with their musical shenanigans. Jeff Tweedy's vocals and the band's sound give the feel of a Dylan-U2 performance. Bob Weir joins them for the Robert Hunter-Jerry Garcia gem "Ripple" and "Dark Star", "California Stars" written by Woody Guthrie and arranged by Wilco, and the Grateful Dead's St. Stephen. Then, all these musicians, Ryan Bingham, My Morning Jacket, Wilco and John Doe join Bob Weir & Jeff Tweedy to close out the opening act with Dylan's "When I Paint My Masterpiece". Bob Dylan and his band, with newcomer Colin Linden on lead guitar, play like they been rehearsing these same songs for over a month. Bob picks up Canadian guitarist Colin Linden in Toronto after Duke Robillard left the band and old timer lead guitarist Charlie Sexton also fills in on this tour. Bob sounds better, more confident than ever. I like the way he works "Tangled Up In Blue" and introduces our ears to his latest vinyl output "Tempest". "Duquesne Whistle" he wrote with Robert Hunter and has a rockin' beat. He opens with his Oscar winning song "Things Have Changed". He performs nearly the same set on all nights of this summer tour, yet each concert is unique and different. The only songs he varies are "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" with "Desolation Row" that he does tonight, and sometimes like a weather change he does "Thunder On The Mountain" and tonight "Summer Days". He occasionally adds a new unexpected cover song, like The Band's "The Weight". This summer he also performed Bobby Vee's "Susie Baby" in St. Paul, Minnesota with Bobby Vee in the audience; the gospel song "Twelve Gates To The City" and "Let Your Light Shine On Me" joined by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Bob alternates the encore, tonight's "Ballad Of A Thin Man" with "Blowin' In The Wind", and on August 1st and eve before he performed "Shooting Star", a song that is magnanimous live. "She Belongs To Me" brings it all back home tonight, and Dylan's show closes with "All Along The Watchtower" preceding the encore.

I enjoy the shows, but I think the piano sounds stronger than last year, and the encores are always the same and for me, not are the best songs that he can choose. But in general terms, the band plays good, and in the first show in Amsterdan, Po' Boy was a highlight, precious song, and precious performance.
