Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - Canada's Queen City started out as Pile o' Bones, a humble tent settlement on treeless plain near a small, winding creek. Today it is the provincial capital with an urban forest of more than 350,000 hand-planted trees, an extensive park system, major attractions, and a rich, colourful heritage. Residents are proud of the city they've built, and welcome visitors warmly with handshakes, helpful advice and genuine smiles.


The last time that Bob played in Regina it was in this same building and the venue was under another name, The Regina Agridome. Thanks to Paul Hanley for the following 1998 review from: http://www.boblinks.com/102098r.html
Review - October 20, 1998
Regina, Saskatchewan
Regina Exhibition Park - Agridome

I have been listening to Bob Dylan since 1963, but only the recorded versions until last year. Regina was my third Dylan concert. I was in Oleon, NY last year, Saskatoon on Sunday and Regina last night. Bob's sound is quite different this tour, compared to NY. It's more of a hard, grunge, garage band sound. Very enjoyable, but possiibly something of a surprise to the older people in the audience who were raised on acoustic Blowin in the Wind.

The Regina audience was a lot more spirited from the start than Saskatoon's. Both places had about 4000 people out, not many considering that it was Bob's first stop ever in this province. People really warmed to him when he played classics.

1.Gotta Serve Somebody
He started with a rough and ready version of this one, one of one or two hundred of my favorites. A little easier to catch the lyrics compared to the Saskatoon show. Bob seemed more relaxed, healthier, in better voice, and he played a lot more guitar. He started dancing around a bit right from the start.

2.I'll Remember You
I don't know this song well, so no references. It was Bob, so I liked it, but not likely to become a favorite.

3.Cold Irons Bound
The sound in the Agridome was fairly bad, lots of white noise, which showed on this song in particular. A hard, driving version. Good stuff.

4.Just Like A Woman (with harp)
A crowd pleaser. Lovely version, with Bob singing a lot better, and the sound system working out okay. Bob played the harp at the back, with one foot up on a riser, for some reason.

5.Can't Wait
Nothing wrong with this, though the crowd obviously doesn't know it.

6.Silvio
I don't particularly like this one, but the best of the three versions I've heard to date.

7.Mr. Tambourine Man (acoustic)
They loved this one, and Bob seemed to be right into it, with some decent, lyrical singing.

8.Masters Of War (acoustic)
A favorite of mine, I think he skipped a verse or two.

9.Tangled Up In Blue (acoustic)
Great song, presented well. A little hard to make out the words. Lots of good guitar work.

10.My Back Pages (acoustic) (with harp)
This was a surprise. A real gem, nicely done. The first change from Saskatoon. I think it was this one that he put down the guitar and played the harp, weaving around and swaying to the music.

11.She Belongs To Me
A beauty. It doesn't get better than this. Lots of guitar by Bob.

12.'Til I Fell In Love With You
A hard rocking version, everyone up and jumping. Thunderous applause and cheering leads to the encore.

13.Love Sick
Good version, true to the original recording but unique.

14.Rainy Day Women #12 & 35
I generally don't like this song but I must admit it was really enjoyable this time and people loved it.

15.Blowin' In The Wind (acoustic)
Heavy duty crowd pleaser. Lots of great guitar work.

16.Highway 61 Revisited
Rocking and rolling, thundering, mighty and wild. Bob was showing us what he can do and dancing all over the place. Yahoo.

17.Forever Young (acoustic)
People like this one. Not a favorite of mine but it seemed genuine tonight.

More thundering applause sustained for a long time. It didn't work. Still, 17 songs and close to 2 hours. I wasn't complaining. Lot's of people were leaving before the final number, so it may not have gone over with everyone, but the vast majority seemed to have a fantastic time. One old hippy yelled: "Thanks for the hippy hippy shake, Bob." My brother and I drove home singing all the old Dylan tunes we could think of. I had to get up at 6 and drive back to Saskatoon for work. Had a great day and was telling everyone about Bob and his healing powers.
- Paul Hanley



Personally, I wanna hear that hard-rocking version of Til I Fell In Love With You! Anyone have a link?

I hope. I also hope it doesn't mean he'll put away Forgetful Heart.

I wouldn´t mind as long as Highway 61 and Thunder On The Mountain remain in the set.

I agree. I'd wonder if I was at the wrong event if there was no HWY61.
