Bob Dylan tritt in Deutschland auf
Der Literaturnobelpreisträger gibt sechs Konzerte



»NEVER ENDING TOUR«
Bob Dylan zu sehen, ist ein bisschen wie in den Spiegel zu schauen: Kaum ein Musiker verkörpert die Wandlungen der Zeit so exzessiv wie er. 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota, geboren, hat er in den Cafés von Greenwich Village begonnen, Musik zu machen, und wurde zur Protestikone, als die USA die Welt in Vietnam und Kuba neu ordnen wollten.

Seither ist Bob Dylan ein Meister der Neuerfindung. Der Sohn jüdischer Immigranten konvertierte zum Erweckungschristen, und spätestens mit seinem Hit »Like a Rolling Stone« aus dem Jahr 1965 verwandelte sich der Protest-Song-Schreiber zur Rock-Ikone.

WANDLUNGEN Schon nach Beginn des Vietnam-Krieges und auch dem Attentat auf John F. Kennedy 1963 reagierte Dylan auf die neue Ordnung der Welt und vereinte Elektronik und Folk, Songwriting und Rockmusik. So verband er in seiner Musik alle Stimmungen, die in der Luft lagen – und wurde dafür zunächst ausgebuht.

Heute wissen seine Fans, dass Dylans Wandlungen auch die Art und Weise widerspiegeln wie sie die Welt sehen. Gekonnt balanciert er zwischen privatem Rückzug, innerem Mikrokosmos und Weltpolitik. Das Politische wird bei ihm privat, das Private politisch.

Das macht seine Lyrik, die im vergangenen Jahr mit dem Literaturnobelpreis ausgezeichnet wurde, so groß und so intim. Aus diesem Spiel gehen Lyrics wie in »Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door«, »Mr. Tambourine Man« und »Girl From The North Country« hervor. Selbst die kapitalisierte Gegenwart hatte der Ex-Protestler spätestens zu dem Zeitpunkt in den Sack gesteckt, als er seinen Hit »The Times They Are a-Changin’« für die Werbung für eine Bank oder eine Versicherung freigab.

MODERNE Wenn Dylan nun, nach über drei Dutzend Studioalben, seine »Never Ending Tour« in Neu-Ulm, Krefeld, Bielefeld, Leipzig, Nürnberg und Baden-Baden fortsetzt, sind das mehr als nur einfach Rock-Konzerte. Dylan, der Mann mit Mundharmonika und Klampfe, besingt den Soundtrack einer sich ständig ändernden Welt. »The Times They Are a-Changin’« ist das eigentliche Motto unserer Moderne, und Dylan lebt es – bis heute.

Geändert hat sich auch der Preis, den wir für diese nostalgische Reise zahlen müssen. Dylan ist längst ein Klassiker, und dafür nimmt er zum Beispiel am Donnerstagabend in Neu-Ulm stolze 120 Euro Eintritt – Tickets in den beiden unteren Preisklassen sind bereits vergriffen. Musikgeschichte hat eben ihren Preis!

As web-translated:

Bob Dylan appears in Germany
The Nobel Prize for Literature gives six concerts



»NEVER ENDING TOUR«
To see Bob Dylan is a bit like looking in the mirror: Hardly any other musician embodies the changes of time as excessively as he does. Born in 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota, he started making music in Greenwich Village's cafés and became a protest icon when the US wanted to reorganize the world in Vietnam and Cuba.

Since then Bob Dylan is a master of the invention. The son of Jewish immigrants converted to the revivalist, and at the latest with his hit "Like a Rolling Stone" from 1965, the protest songwriter turned into a rock icon.

CHANGES Already after the start of the Vietnam War and the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 Dylan reacted to the new order of the world and combined electronics and folk, songwriting and rock music. So he combined in his music all the moods that were in the air - and was initially booed.

Today, his fans know that Dylan's transformations also reflect the way they see the world. Skillfully balancing between private retreat, inner microcosm and world politics. The political becomes private with him, the private political.

That's what makes his poetry, which received the Nobel Prize for Literature last year, so big and so intimate. Lyrics like "Knockin 'On Heaven's Door," "Mr. Tambourine Man and Girl From The North Country. Even the capitalized present had put the ex-protester in the bag by the time he released his hit The Times They Are a Changin for advertising a bank or insurance company.

MODERN When Dylan continues his "Never Ending Tour" in Neu-Ulm, Krefeld, Bielefeld, Leipzig, Nuremberg and Baden-Baden after more than three dozen studio albums, these are more than just rock concerts. Dylan, the man with harmonica and guitars, sings the soundtrack of a constantly changing world. "The Times They Are a-Changin" is the true motto of our modern day, and Dylan lives it - until today.

The price we have to pay for this nostalgic trip has also changed. Dylan has long been a classic, and he takes for example on Thursday evening in Neu-Ulm proud 120 Euro admission - Tickets in the two lower price ranges are already out of print. Music history has its price!

The quality of the current shows is so consistently high that I think some cannot see the forest for the trees and fail to recognize the historical importance of the performances. These are shows for the ages. Dylan's voice in great shape, his singing heartfelt and expressive, displaying a wide range of emotions and truly bringing the songs to life. The voice of a man totally in control of his art. The band as tight as ever. Perhaps the best Rock & Roll band in the business today.

I think that if you asked Dylan he might tell you that the current shows come closest to the sound he has been hearing in his head ever since he decided he wanted "to join Little Richard", the sound of the perfect Rock & Roll concert.

This.
Nuremberg was another fine example for this. In front of an enthusiastic crowd we witnessed a beautiful concert. Magic happened again. Time was out of mind.

During "Desolation Row" Stu left the stage and came back with a new guitar after maybe 20 or 30 seconds. Has somebody an idea what happened ?

Guitar malfunction? Or did he pick the wrong guitar for the song and only realized this some seconds into the song? Are you sure this was during "Desolation Row"?

Why does it seem every guitar guy has to have a different guitar for every song?
I’m more impressed with a guy who can make one guitar play through a whole concert.

It was a great concert! It began right at 8 PM, maybe even a minute early... people were still walking in. Other than that, the audience seemed really appreciative.

I hadn't listened to many bootlegs of this year before, because I wanted to be surprised - and it worked!

Pay in Blood was re-worked pretty well, I think with a new melody for the start of the verses. Interestingly, sometimes Bob sang the words in this new melody, sometimes he just sang the "studio melody" over the band playing the new one.
While THC and TUIB both aren't my favorite versions of the last few years, I still appreciate Bob keeping them fresh.
I was really happy Thunder On The Mountain was as great as the last bootleg I've heard it on. :) Duquesne Whistle was changed as well, sounds like another song now.

Melancholy Mood is one of my favorites of the standards. I think this was the one song Bob had problems with this evening. It often felt like he wanted to reach tones he couldn't and then adjusted his approach mid-line. I still enjoyed it, but I prefer the studio take. However, Come Rain or Come Shine sounded better than on the CD (to me) and Autumn Leaves is always a highlight!

Other songs I really liked this time:
Dont't Think Twice, Simple Twist of Fate, Honest With Me, Desolation Row (I also saw Stu leaving the stage at the beginning of it), Long and Wasted Years and (surprisingly) Blowin in the Wind.

Hawk, Truffletree, Precious & other goers: Cheers!

Echo: agree with your statement whole-heartedly.
Especially your opening sentence:

“The quality of the current shows is so consistently high that I think some cannot see the forest for the trees and fail to recognize the historical importance of the performances.”

Most that go don’t seem to have any regrets for doing so.
