He can't help it, he's really a secret admirer who received positive reinforcement for dissing Bob here. I think maybe his ego got pumped up and now he feels like he's got to please his imaginary so-called followers by calling himself 'all-knowing,' etc. He feels painted in a corner when he, himself is actually the one that can set himself free. Little does he know that we'd truly accept and love him for what he is if only he'd come back and be himself. I wanna party with this guy.

Haha! That's great, switching mid-verse.. good way to change.. I'd like to see a video of this to see Bob's face :) I need to get to some more shows this tour. Things will need to be sold! I like the look of the set, I sense some more unusual songs to come these next few shows, I feel it in my bones..

Yes, he played the piano during many songs (btw it seems to me that it also improves his singing when he's sitting at the piano opposed to standing at the organ) but what's more important, he did not touch the organ during the whole concert.

He also played some mean guitar during Simple Twist Of Fate.

All in all, a great night. (What else could be said of a concert which delivers Visions Of Johanna?)


Good stuff! I am feeling really good about this tour, I think Bob is even more in the mood for it than last year, with this new album recorded and ready to be released :)

Funny!
Under the red sky was a Berlin song. 3 times since 1995 (95,98,05). Although there were 11 shows from 1995 it's very often, because it was only played 147 times since 1990.

But there were many other strange things:

Seven days (first 1976 than 1996) 20 years
Wicked messenger (first 1987 than 1997) 10
You ain't goimg nowhere (studio 1967, first live 1997) 20 years
My back pages (first live 1978, then 1988) 10 years
Drifter's escape (studio 1967 first live 1992) 15 years
To be alone with you (Sudio 1969 first live 1989) 20 years
Jokerman (first live 1984 than 1994) 10 years
Hazel (studio 1974, firs played on tour 2004) 30 years (I know there was last waltz 76)

There was a very longer list among fans in the late 90's. probably most coincidents but funny

If i remember correctly, the only song he played the organ was the opener. and yes, he switched the lyrics after a few lines.

So listening to the recording, did the band play "River Flow" from the start and Dylan got carried away starting with "Pillbox" instead? Obviously they are very similiar musically anyway these days.

To my ears the Band clearly plays Leopard and it takes them quite a while to follow Bob to watch the river flow. Meanwhile he sings bridges when the Band plays verses etc... But sure you're right: The blues arrangements are so similar these days that you can hardly tell which song is played.

Yeah, you're right. I just listened to the 2011 "River Flow" and it's very different, so clearly it was Bob who forced the band to switch. No wonder it took them a while, they probably didn't know whther Bob would do the whole thing or go back to "Pillbox" later. What a trainwreck, albeit a funny one.

But one could also see that they were already talking a lot on stage just before the first song so it should have been clear which song they were going to play and (bob) to sing :D or the other way around: too much communication/information.

Well, if five guys play one song and one guy sings another, it's quite clear who changed his mind, isn't it?

i think so too. it seemed to me as if bob wasn't remembering the first line of watching the river flow. so he waited a few bars and started off with pillbox. during the first verse he switched to watching the river flow.

nice setlist with great versions of under the red sky and visions of johanna, weird singing on blind willie mctell, which seemed to be great fun for bob. simple twist of fate was way better than the night before, and i really liked thunder on the mountain for the first time, which was very beautifully sung.

so, what's the verdict - did he pull a fast one or misstart the song - his leopard skin has had a watching the river flow sound to it prior to this event. was the lyric switchup intentional? can anyone who was there weigh in????
