Welcome to 2017 Rumors & Tour News

Still anticipating more 2016 stuff too!
Like a Fall Tour to complement Desert Storm.

UK, Europe, please, and more Dylan songs in the setlist......so many that potentially would sound great with his current style of performing.

He won't tour in 2017, or if he does it will be shortened to what we were use to. Rumor started in my brain based upon pure speculation. He is pushing into his later 70s now...

This is utter bollocks.

Now we can come back in a year and see who is right.

Didn’t I read somewhere a rumor of a new album of originals for 2017?

Put the rest of the standards in the vault Bob, it’ll give us something to look forward to when they’re released in 20 years.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had less of these 'hot air' threads and more genuine information? Nobody needs a tour rumors thread for next year before there actually are tour rumors for next year. There aren't even rumors for this fall beyond Oldiefest.

That is absolutely hilarious coming from you.

Can't remember when I last opened a 100% meaningless thread to litter the tour forum with.

The air is getting hotter. There's a rumbling in the skies. 8)

This thread will be needed eventually, good to have it now just in case. Of course I prefer genuine information. But when there is none, daydreams and wild speculation is more fun than silence, in my opinion.

When was the last time one of the live setlist threads actually got a live setlist, as opposed to after the show?

The expecting tour crew decides
The fleshy, sweaty prude imbibes 
The steady tease of future gigs satisfies you
Rewarding computer screen debates
Family ties and bank accounts that wait
It's not that way
I cannot wait for tour news!

It's possible there will be more posts here - speculating about an uncertain future we can fantasise about - than on the live setlist thread where apathy about an overly predictable / repetitive present reality abounds.
Maybe first performance of 2017 will be at the HRC inauguration?? After all he played Chimes of Freedom for Bill,all those years ago.
True , though , unlikely to be any real news about 2017 for several months and there are various scenarios which could prevent a 2017 tour :(

I wonder if Bob knows whether he wants to tour next year yet.

Does he think that far ahead or live more in the moment?

Perhaps he'll do a specific album tour - Bob Dylan - the 'Love and Theft' tour or a 'Time Out of Mind' tour or even a 'Highway 61 Revisited' tour? Playing every track from a particular album with a collection of favorites mixed in at the end for good measure! He could even get the venues to play some of his Sinatra standards over their sound system before he takes to the stage.
This is probably complete and utter bollocks as well but it's as good as any of the other rumors I've read here. So beat that!

But that was last year and this is now. :mrgreen:

Seriously, we don't find it acceptable for him to just skip Europe for a whole year. He got us into the bad habit of having them around every year and we demand that he doesn't try to wean us off now. :lol:

You know. Back when there were still surprises...
(even though they were few and far between - what, like 4 or 5 years ago now?).

Don't be sad & frustrated. It is what it is. The new reality.
Tiny bubbles.

And yet another astute observation, my friend.

I will report out tonight if something actually different happens.
