Great review judge! It's such a special occasion to see Bob, be in the same room with him and experience his genius! As Levon Helm said, "We're lucky to be alive in his time." Your review really has me looking forward to Rochester on Nov. 14th!

hey guys. Been a busy week end Bob on Friday and Lindsey Buckingham last night.Lucky me. What a show! This was my 5th Dylan show. It was a beautiful night. i was about 20 rows back center. The show started about 10 minutes late. Dylan's usually quite punctual. Which leads me to start projecting about Dylans state of mind, lol. Is he ok? is he in a bad mood? what kind of show will i see this time? I think that i worry about every little nuance too much? Last time Bob played here, he walked out to a standing O. I was surprised not to see it again this time. Regardless Bob appeared to be in good spirits! I love this band, they are so freekin tight. I don't mind the fact that Stu is gone. I like less instruments, sometimes. Sometimes less is more? Charlie is adept enough to cover and fill the musical space left by Stu. Bob was hat-less tonight. From 20 rows back, with my eyesight, when he was backlit, his hair reminded me of the greatest hits album cover. Gray suit with piping down the pant leg. I found Bob to be quite animated tonight! it took a little while for the sound guys to get the vocals right. I am not sure that they ever did get it 'just right' . It sounded like the vocals were peaking the sound board, hence distorting. especially with the more raucous tunes. I can't wait to hear a recording.Regardless, it's still Bob. His piano was clearly discernible. His harp was in great form. From 'Things have changed' to 'Thin Man' it was really magical. on,It ain't me, he backed off the mic a little and it was perfect. Every word was clear as a bell. It seems as if he's really dialed in. It had hints of the original arrangement, but then not, lol. Hwy 61 is always one of my favorites. It just rocked. I love what the band does musically here. There's a little pause just before the last lines of each verse. The music just swirls off of the stage and forms a tornadic, sonic attack. I've never heard When i paint prior to tonight. It was a special treat. There's something about a pedal steel that is just haunting. Donnie does such a nice job! Scarlettown was another treat. Donnie on banjo adds a unique flavor. Feel my love was caring and compassionate. His harp as always complimented it so well. The new arrangement of Rolling Stone is pretty cool. Really cool, actually. The verses were very low so that the vocals were out front. He really stretched out meal. deal and conceal, etc. The audience was hooting and cheering upon hearing this. I've always liked Roman Kings. Don't think twice was touching. Love sick found Bob on center stage again. He was sort of walking around, carrying his mic stand whilst singing. Again, he seemed quite animated. Thunder built up to crescendo with the band trading licks with George. Then Soon after midnight. I really like that song as well. It always reminds me of 'Blue Moon, especially charlies lead part. Bob kind of gave off a tender rendition. Got to serve was another first for me. What a great tune! The set was over save for an obligatory encore.Blowing in the wind followed by Ballad. Ballad was awesome, I could hear every word. It's really hard to describe his phrasing. There are so many facets to this guy. I still get it. Going to see Dylan, to me, is more than just musical. It's historical. I think of what it must of been like to go see Samuel Clemens or Will Rogers speak. Then you have the genius of his writing or as the Nobel people say, his poetry. Which leads me back to his music. I feel really lucky. Can't wait for #6!

The highlight of the Tulsa show for me? The new arrangements (new to me!) on Cry Awhile, When I Paint My Masterpiece and Like a Rolling Stone. Maybe the best version of LARS I have heard live! Bob left the piano and drug a mic stand far back on stage to sing a creepy version of Scarlet Town. He left the piano for Love Sick as well. He did a few of his reeling, “hands on the hips pose” dance moves on these numbers. He seemed in pretty good spirits, laughing with Donnie a few times between songs and doing lots of joker grins. I would like to have heard “It Takes a Lot to Laugh…” but it wasn’t to be. No complaints though- a fantastic show. It went by fast! I had great seats- 3rd row on Bob’s side. Hope you Unknowns get to catch some shows this tour. It was my 19th show and I’m already ready for 20. : )
