This guy was pretty good and likeable.
His Dylan covers were all very fine sung.
Not like the strange bloke of last year!

Neither "done" nor "dusted".

In Regensburg '15: thoughts and glimpses of past, present and future. About wisdom and age. About the beginning and the end. About the light and the darkness. About artistic greatness and physical decay. About hope and despair. About love, life and loneliness ... The eternal circle.
A touching voice in the body of the fragile minstrel; the song and dance man now saying a kind of farewell?
Poetry, music, communication on a level, my words are not able to describe.

Thank you, Mr. Dylan, once again for your unique art of performance. May we meet again ...

RAH 2. It was very easy to have a piss in the intermission.

Oh and the show was majestic and the people I met fore and aft were lovely examples of humanity.

I must have missed Bennyboy though.

The first night in Manchester, my only concert this year, I cried inwardly, and outwardly, twice: during I'm a Fool to Want You and Autumn Leaves.

My other two highlights, walking out to the concert, and walking back into town.

best, most royal venue overall= Amsterdam for me. coziest theater=basel . warmest audience=milan. can't forget the weather...went from freezing cold in leipzig to almost 20 c sunny in Bregenz.
ah memories money can't buy that will now fade way to credit card debt but a good feeling overall will reside... :) the tour dropped me off right on winter's doorstep, but I'll be warmer for a bit.

Only made Nashville & Memphis this year.
The shows were crisp & clean, love the theater venues.
Even though they were 'repeat' shows we were quite lucky he hadn't displaced larger portions with more Shadows yet.
Both shows were solid & memorable.
Sat in almost the same exact locations for each show, a few rows back slightly left of center with no obstructions. Not bad for obtaining tix moments before each one began.

It hurt to pull out of Mainz, Tubingen & Bamberg, but quite enjoyed some of those resulting recordings.

A good year. Let's hope he's got Frank out of his system after indelibly marking his 100th birthday.

Oww... the cover songs were the best of the bunch, performance-wise!

I'll bet. Just don't do it for me substance-wise.
I'm happy for those who get a thrill out of it though.

Admittedly, I had to hear them live a bunch of times before they grew on me. After that, I found plenty to get from them, substance-wise.

I have to also make reference to Franky the busker who was performing to us after the Berlin and Southampton gigs, he was also at the RAH but I missed him there. I thought it added a certain something hearing him perform all those songs from the 60's that are synonymous with Dylan's early career and the way his audience was standing around and joining in was really nice.
btw, it took me three attempts to get the spelling of synonymous correct but I did it in the end

Summer 2016: Philly, Portland, Gilford,
Fall 2016: Charlotte

All good times. Never a poor show. Excellent fun surrounding each one too.

Apparently a few shows per year is enough at this point...or so it seems.
