U.S. Fall Tour continues!

Bob Dylan and His Band

Knoxville, Tennessee
Tennessee Theatre

9 November 2016, Wednesday

The 65th Show of the 2016 Never Ending Tour.


Capacity: 1,631
Showtime: 8:00 pm



"I been looking for her even clear through Tennessee"

---

SOLD OUT - Bob Dylan


Knoxville, Tennessee, USA – Bob Dylan’s career has lasted the better part of fifty years now. That’s pretty remarkable. What is more impressive is that Dylan has remained not only active for almost all of that period, but controversial. He has never gotten by on sentimentality or nostalgia. He has never repeated his successes. For better or for worse, Dylan has always pushed his work ahead.

Bob Dylan is as great a songwriter – ah, let’s not beat around the bush – as great an artist as America has produced. But he’d be the first to tell you that he is part of a long line, one link in an endless chain. You can follow his influence backward or forward according to your own inclination. Or you can spend a long time just listening to Dylan’s five decades of contributions. Wherever you go into it, and whatever you get out of it, your time will be well spent.

Wonder if Silent Bob will acknowledge he is on record as admiring Donald Trump or that he did nothing to urge people to vote against him or even that the election happened?

Or your hero might just do the same old set list as ever and f*ck off in his bus as quickly as possible to the next pay cheque. It's so exciting waiting to find out!

It might be better for your health if you kept your prior commitments.

Yes we need songs with more stabbings, death and bloodshed in them.

Old Testament Bob in da house!

I blame Springsteen for the result. When I saw him pull out his guitar and start singing at Hillary's final pre election gig, I knew the game was up...did he not learn after Bush???

What does that even mean? The usual whitewash.

McG, I have seen your posts just this evening, and acknowledge you appear to be very upset at the election results, please be assured you are not alone in this feeling.

I believe this is a crucible, as Arthur Miller would say, and drama teaches the size of the hero is determined by the size of the villain.

I proffer that Bob has been expressing the Scarlet Town nature of America in symbolic language for fifty years, just wanted to thank his courage in that.

his artwork means different things in different contexts and eras, just wanted to thank his classicism in that.


And I was just struck at the tv broadcast graphics last night as being so stunningly unexpected by even the victorious sides' campaign and supporters themselves,

that it seemed I was looking, on the ubiquitous screens we are surrounded by--, four years later--, at the stylistic 'confounding of expectation' of Bob's graphics work,
with its scurrilous attack on prejudices of all political sides.

I have never seen Bob as opaque, even when he looks like Tommy Makem.

I thought he'd just stuck weird images on old magazine covers.

At least he still has occasional moments of clarity, in which he sees the world as it really is.
Personally, I think it's time to watch Masked & Anonymous again.

Not expecting Bob to acknowledge the election with a SetList nuance or change, too bad.

Unlikely - maybe will be listening for more emphasis on ' desolation ' , and/or hoping for masters of war to replace a sinatra tune....
Great looking venue.

I've had the closing phrase of Mickey Rourke's speech echoing in my head all day. :(

He switched out 'I Could Have Told You’ so as not to make the crying Clinton supporters feel even worse.

Check out the lyrics, tonight it would have seemed like he was singing about Hillary.

I could have told you, she'd hurt you, she'd love you a while, then desert you
If only you asked, I could have told you so
I could have saved you some crying, yes I could have told you she's lying
But you were in love and didn't want to know

I hear her now as I toss and turn and try to sleep
I hear her now, making promises she'll never keep
And soon it's over and done with, she'll find someone new to have fun with
Through all of my tears, I could have told you so

I hear her now, as I toss and turn and try to sleep
I hear her now making promises she'll never keep
And soon it's over, and done with, she'll find someone new to have fun with
Through all of my tears, I could have told you so

"The apple cannot be stuck back on the Tree of Knowledge; once we begin to see, we are doomed and challenged to seek the strength to see more, not less."
-- Arthur Miller, commenting on "After the Fall" (1964) in The Saturday Evening Post (1 February 1964)

"The story is not in the words; it's in the struggle."
-- Paul Auster, "The Locked Room"

I just checked his new art book. He painted a voter registration office.
