Dude, when Bob Dylan comes out for an encore, you have absolutely no idea what he's gonna end with... Sooooo many options

C. Riemenschneider ‏@ChrisRstrib 1m
51 years to day since recorded, Blowin' in the Wind slipped in as encore, only variation from rest of tour. @bobdylan #Americanarama

"Dylan delights 7,000 in return to native Duluth"

One of the biggest rock and roll shows to ever hit the area took place Tuesday night at Bayfront Park under overcast skies, but without the drenching rain so many feared would fall.

By: Tony Bennett, Duluth News Tribune

DULUTH -- The prodigal son returns. Again.

One of the biggest rock and roll shows to ever hit the area took place Tuesday night at Bayfront Park under overcast skies, but without the drenching rain so many feared would fall.

Bob Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Richard Thompson came together under the “Americanarama” banner to delight the 7,000-odd people gathered there, and the show was one for the books. Under normal circumstances, My Morning Jacket or Wilco likely could have headlined Bayfront on their own, but the guy with his name on more than one of our local manhole covers was the biggest draw for many.

Robert Zimmerman, the man who was born in Duluth and raised in Hibbing before he went on to become one of the most feted songwriters in music history under the nom de plume Bob Dylan, walked onstage with his band just as night fell. The stage was set like an old Hollywood sound stage, with massive Klieg lights hanging overhead. The mood was dark, and the music was, too.

Dylan, who was dressed in a relatively colorful grey suit when compared to his band’s all-black attire, went without an instrument for the first few songs, and he seemed to enjoy playing his music without being strapped to his guitar. He put his hand on his hips like Mick Jagger, threw shapes and illustrated his lyrics with subtle hand motions.

“I used to care, but things have changed,” Dylan sang, his once-reedy voice now having completed its transformation into gravely Leonard Cohenness. As the show progressed, a number of lesser-known songs acted as a warmup to the famed songs, “Tangled Up In Blue” being the first one of those played. Even though the arrangement made the tune unrecognizable, the recitation of the chorus lyric sent a wave of electricity through the crowd.

Dylan’s band expertly played the material, adding banjo and standup bass when needed. But it was Bob Dylan, one of the most beloved songwriters in history, up there on a stage only a short distance from where he came into the world, that made the night magic.

Got back at 3 a.m. Here are some brief notes...

Enjoyed seeing Soon after Midnight and Duquense Whistle for the first time. It was nice to get a change up in the encore, whether it was inspired by the anniversary of the recording or just him wanting to leave on a sentimental note in his hometown.

Bob changed the first half of the second, third and fourth verses of Tangled up in Blue. Need to hear the recording to remember them all. Something about the burner being filled with rust/dust, you look someone I can trust. The past is gone, the future might as well be today or tomorrow might as well be now, something like that. Memorize these words as you're walking out the door/to the show.

I tried to remember them as the song went along, but there were too many and I didn't get nearly enough sleep last night.

Best songs for me were the Tempest songs, the new arrangement of She Belongs to me, which sounded exactly like Someday Baby from TTS. Heard him sound check She Belongs, Highwater and Love Sick as we pulled into the parking lot.

The mirrors didn't get set up across the stage. All three were brought out and then left lined up harmlessly in front of the drum kit. No sight line issues. No band intro. No camera announcement.

Bob only smiled a couple times. Not too much quirky behavior. No references to Duluth.

I got the impression this setlist is something Bob is comfortable with, and that he primarily sticks with it because it offers some variety as far as arrangements while also being primarily songs he can get through without having to sing melodically too much. He can bark and whisper his way through Love Sick, Beyond Here, Things Have Changed, Blind Willie McTell, etc., without it seeming as out of place as it does on 60s songs everyone in the crowd knows.

Vocal highlights were Soon after Midnight (modern slower songs suit his voice well enough to put across), Duquesne Whistle, the second verse of All Along the Watchtower (sang to the melody of the original) and a the middle of Summer Days where he did some lines that reminded me of the '04 Lonesome Day Blues performances. Patches of really effort-filled singing seemed to come suddenly and leave just as quick.

Richard Thompson I enjoyed a lot. He seemed like a cool dude. Played five songs and also came back for two with Wilco, including The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. My Morning Jacket were talented guitarists, but their stage antics were a little over the top for my taste. The lead guy wore a towel on his head while singing, put on this coat/cape thing (his morning jacket maybe, I don't know) and played with this sound effects machine that just sounded like video game music to me. I enjoyed Wilco much more.

Overall a good show, not a top-fiver but worth the trip. Watching him battle the bark did make me long a little bit for the old acoustic set days, but I still enjoy what Bob does enough to show up if he's in the neighborhood.
