Well, yesterday I must have been in a different concert than the others here.
It was the worst of my 11 concerts since 2007!
Sitting at the back on the left side, I had no good acoustic (and no good sight, of course). Too loud, singing was not understandable (Autumn Leaves in English or in French????), some instruments better to hear than others. The mix wasn't good through the whole concert.
Very disturbing was that so many people were constantly moving through the venue - came too late, needed to go to the WC or needed beer to stand the concert and discovered maybe that it wasn't their kind of thing. I guess that a lot of people wanted to hear the Nobel prize winner and were disappointed.
Setlist:
Too much of the new stuff which I really don't like.
Stormy weather is a quite nice jazz song - this was the worst interpretation I ever heard.
Gems were only Love Sick, Desolation Row and Ballad Of A Thin Man.
Resummee: last BD Concert so far for me until he publishs new own material or takes the Sinatra/40ies stuff out of the concerts.

Glad to hear you liked it Echo! And everyone else, including Cony's, opinions are good to have here.

Bad. Even the sinatra stuff was full-on, out of control barking, zero subtlety or smoothness, unlike 2015. The vocals were way, way, way too loud. Sounded way worse than the recent shows on tape. It was obvious Bob was wrestling with his voice. Just wasn't working at all on Tuesday night. The arrangements and setlist was just not pleasant to listen to, goolish... bit of a nightmare sitting through it. H61 and Tangled were ok.

Judge for yourself - 54mins (spirit) was just about the low point.

Maybe but the best Love Sick of the tour. Kick ass version!

Totally agree. For me this concert was much better than the concert in Düsseldorf that I've been to.

Atleast his voice is thousand times better now than this.

Really?? His vocal sounds a lot better from Frankfurt the other night to my ears.

Listening to the - very good - recording I can't rank this show among the better ones from this tour really? But well, it all sounds pretty much the same now from night to night anyway, so...

Crikey, I saw him in Luxembourg, he was great, really great, but his piano playing was horrible.

This Frankfurt show however, some of his piano with Donnie trading licks is just wonderful.

Spirit on the Water in particular.

The poor sound contributed to the bad experience. Bobs mic was scarily loud, there was no chance of any subtlety. I was a block in front of the sound desk on the floor. It was painful. No idea what they are doing it those sort of venues either.
