Bob Dylan – Live in Lisbon 2018
A Portuguese appearance from the music icon

Festicket

22 Marzo 2018 - Lisbona, Portogallo
Legendary performer, influential songwriter and Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan stops off in Lisbon on 22 March, with his band in tow, for another live show.

The veteran's appearance in the Portuguese capital will come almost exactly a year after the release of his 38th studio album, and more than 55 years since he started out as a musician.

Having toured intensively for decades, Bob Dylan and his band have thousands of shows under their belt, and they bring a level of live experience to the city's Altice Arena that few in the music world can match.

PURPOSE of the 'Live Set List' threads:
This is a spot to discuss & share your thoughts, perspectives & feelings surrounding the shows...
...before, during and after...whether you attend or not.
We especially love to hear the thoughts of those going, of those there, and of folks simply reflecting on whatever was.

As many of us know, it's not only about the Set List!
Most of us don't attend every show, in person. Yet we're interested. We go when we can.
We anticipate & relate to the energy of each other's experiences.
It's fun to hear about.

We love eyes in the field and feet on the ground. No pressure, no requirements. We understand.
Feel free to share your observations or post your links to any related text, audio, and video.
Whether you're there or wishing you were or wondering what the latest is, please comment!
And, above all, have some fun!



Let the chatter begin!

Is this the first time a tour leg is getting kicked off in Portugal?

No.
As Nos pointed out in the Rumors & Tour News thread,
Bob kicked Europe off from Lisbon in 1999.
Maybe other tours too?

Personally, I like Lisboa and Portugal in general.
It would be nice to find an excuse to be there, or in the vicinity, when Bob pops through.

History
Plans to build a multipurpose arena in Lisbon date back to the first discussions of the Expo '98 Master Plan. At the time, the city lacked a versatile facility able to accommodate concerts, congresses and sporting events of big scope. The existing structures, both in Lisbon and in Portugal alike, either had limited capacity (up to 4,000 people), or were difficult to adapt to non-conventional events, such as world class indoor sports competitions. Another shortcoming of existing venues was the lack of technical infrastructure deemed necessary to host modern concerts, musicals and to allow for proper live TV coverage.

The country needed an arena to fill the existing gap between smaller indoor halls, like the Lisbon Coliseum, and open-air stadia. As a consequence, Portugal would not host games of important indoor sports championships and no major concerts would take place in the country in periods of cold and rainy weather.

The decision to build the Pavilhão Atlântico within the masterplan of Expo 98 allowed the arena to have a catchment area well beyond the city of Lisbon. Being a short distance from Gare do Oriente and several major highway interchanges, allows the arena to draw spectators from all over the country.

In July 2012, the arena was sold to Arena Atlântico S.A. for €21,2 million. In May 2013, Portugal Telecom acquired the naming rights to the venue, re-branding it as MEO Arena after its services brand MEO. In October 2017, following the acquisition of Portugal Telecom by Altice, the venue was renamed Altice Arena.


Concerts:
Madonna ended her Re-Invention Tour with two sold out shows for 33,460 fans on September 2004. It was the first time that Madonna performed in Portugal.[5]

The tenth installment of The Dave Matthews Band Live Trax series was recorded at Pavilhão Atlântico in May 2007.

Kylie Minogue performed there on July 4, 2009. It was the first time that Minogue performed in Portugal.

Britney Spears performed a sold-out show on November 9, 2011, as part of her Femme Fatale Tour.

Justin Bieber performed a sold out show at the venue on 11 March 2013, as part of Believe Tour.

One Direction performed a sold-out show in 2013 on the venue as part of their Take Me Home Tour (One Direction).

For 2009, many events had already been booked a year in advance: one of the biggest acts was Green Day in September and later Muse on November 29 as part of their Resistance Tour.

In 2010, the venue held Lady Gaga's The Monster Ball Tour show on December 10 and a week after, on December 16, Thirty Seconds to Mars' concert as part of their Into the Wild Tour.

Beyoncé performed two consecutive sold out shows in 2014, on March 26 and 27, as part of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Miley Cyrus performed at the venue on 15 June 2014, as part of her Bangerz Tour.

Shakira holds the record for the biggest attendance with her Oral Fixation Tour back in 2007 with a completely sold out show.

On November 10, 2014, Lady Gaga brought her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball to the MEO Arena, which is already called "the biggest production ever made" on this venue until then.

On May 4, 2015, 5 Seconds of Summer started their first world tour Rock Out With Your Socks Out Tour with a sold-out show.

Adele performed two consecutive sold out shows in 2016, on May 21 and 22, as part of Adele Live 2016.

Just saw an ad on TV for this show (with some old concert footage and the usual tour poster pic), so they must still have tons of tickets available.

It sure seems that way, doesn’t it?
If so, it will be the 5th straight year, in a row
that he opens with Things.

He's already released and opens with that song every night, and you got the title wrong.

for me, the lineup will be very similar to that of the last concert of 2017. He will change, 3/4 original pieces, and probably will rotate the best pieces of Triplicate.

Something like these:


1. Things Have Changed (It will be for shure!)
2. It Ain't Me, Babe (Possible that changes)
3. Highway 61 Revisited/Beyond Here
4. Triplicate's song
5. Summer Days (Possible that changes)
6. Melancholy Mood
7. Honest With Me (Possible that changes)
8. Tryin' To Get To Heaven (I hope it remains!)
9. Triplicate's song
10. Pay In Blood (It will be)
11. Tangled Up In Blue (It will be)
12. Soon After Midnight (Maybe)
13. Early Roman Kings (Probabily it will be)
14. Triplicate's song
15. Desolation Row (I hope it remains!)
16. Thunder On The Mountain (For shure)
17. Autumn Leaves (Shure)
18. Love Sick (maybe Long And Wasted Years?)

(encore)
19. Blowin' In The Wind (Yeah, for shure)
20. Ballad Of A Thin Man (Perfect as a final)

Hoping to see the Standards melt away.
We may need a new Dylan album first, though.

Just heard those lyrics, by chance, in a cool little lunch joint.
Thought of this Leg Opener which will be here before we know it.

39 days to go. :D :D :D

So looking forward to his Bobness in Lisbon on 22nd March 2018. But just as excited about seeing Lisbon for the first time. I know I am not a PROPER Bob Dylan fan. As I can't make up my mind which gets me more excited; the Bob gig or Lisbon? What about Vino verde in Lisbon fish restaurants or Fado in cosy Portugal Bars or walking steep decorative Lisbon streets, the Navigator museums or the Bob gig or Lisbon or Bob or Lisbon???? Soo I am really glad I am going to see both Bob and Lisbon at the same time. Sighhhhh....

Don't sweat it. It's simple.
Bob is a great excuse to go places you might not.
Boom. Double whammy!
Exponential Excitement!

I would love if he played ERK, or Tempest, or Roll on John in Lisbon (yeahh! Maybe drop a few verses from Tempest, not for me, but for the ones who give out about it). Aside from that I will try to contain my excitment, there are only 39 days left to wait. :?
