Please let us know.

Barely caught 2 shows (Richmond & Boston) and, IMHO, it was one of the better tours of this decade.
Band is way tight, some arrangements are fresh. Musicians getting a little breathing room, Bob's voice is good.
Don't sit too close though, ha ha.

This is indeed a great tour, but please don't take away from other recent legs of the Never Ending Tour (Summer 2017, Fall 2016, Summer 2016, Spring 2015, Fall 2014, Spring 2013, Fall 2012). Comparing them is pointless, but I was fortunate to attend several shows in each of these, and they really were all great.

Fall 17 is the Fall 02 of the Set era.

I'm going to my third show of the year tonight. Bob is just great in 2017.

I also went to two shows and they were pretty great. I love that he is finally giving the band some room. My favorites for this tour were It Ain't me Babe and TOTM.

My prediction for the 2018 Spring Tour is that we are going to see some big changes in the setlist. Hopefully he works Blind Willie or Hard Rain in. I hope that this will be the year that he finally takes Things Have Changed off of the opening spot, I love the song...But man I'd like to see a new opener.

In my opinon the US Fall-Tour 2017 was the best leg of the NET since the US Spring-Tour 2013 with Duke Robillard.
And the Duke Robbilard era was the best NET part since 2005 (110 different and well performed songs in 113 concerts!!!).

Some concerts of the Duke Robillard era were fantastic (especially the first gig of the US Summer-Tour 2013 in West Palm Beach, Florida, 6/26/13).

Looks like people had a positive experience whether there or not.
Most likely, this next Europe tour will be highly worth checking out.

I saw the Milwaukee, WI show in the summer, and the St. Paul, MN show in the fall. Both of them were fantastic! I do think the Milwaukee show sounded a bit better, but that may have been due to the sound guy, or the acoustics of the venue. Either way, I really dug 'em both.

I saw three shows (two in Philadelphia and one in Buffalo) and they were all excellent. Mavis and Bob make for an excellent touring duo! I saw shows during the summer tour as well. The summer shows were great too, but I think Bob was even better in his fall concerts.

Loved it. Didn't have high hopes after the summer but was really pleased with the fall shows I saw. Thunder!

Duke was the beginning of samey setlists and the end of band intros.
