In recent years, 2014, 2011, 2010, 2006. Admittedly, not as common as I thought, but still far from unusual.

In 2011, Bob played Dublin and U.K. gigs in the Autumn. In 2010, he played Limerick the next gig after the Hop Farm. And in 2006 I went directly from Cork to Cardiff.

2014 does give hope, however.

In 2011, I was referring to the summer tour, rather than the entire year, and I don't really count the Hop Farm gigs because they were one offs, rather than proper UK dates.

I suppose the deciding factor will be how far north the tour goes. It'll very possibly be limited to Southern Europe like the 2016 summer tour.

2014 – Dublin + Cork, but no shows in the UK (9 UK shows in 2013, but no show in Ireland)
2011 – summer tour: Cork (June 16) and London (June 18)
2011 - fall tour: Dublin (Oct 6), Glasgow (2 shows), Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff, Bournemouth and London (3 shows)
2010 – Paddock Woods (UK, July 3rd), Limmerick (July 4th)
2006 - Kilkenny (June 24), Cork (June 25), Cardiff (June 27), Bournemouth (June 28)

I should have read up on Bjorner before making bold claims! I forgot about that Feish show...

Wait. Why doesn't Hop count?
That's where the Grand was pulled out.
And a nice slow piano 'Can't Wait' juxtaposed against the recent Alcatraz "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know" arrangement.
Hop totally makes the count & mustn't be discounted.

And: Please remind me why all the fuss over the Feis? What'd I miss?
On paper, it looks like a basic Set List. (see below)
Change My Way might be significant in retrospect, although not rare.
I do miss Cold Irons...

London, England
The Feis
Finsbury Park
June 18, 2011

1. Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking (Bob on keyboard)
2. It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (Bob center stage on harp)
3. Things Have Changed (Bob on guitar)
4. Tangled Up In Blue (Bob center stage on harp)
5. Summer Days (Bob on keyboard)
6. Simple Twist Of Fate (Bob on guitar)
7. Cold Irons Bound (Bob center stage on harp)
8. A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall (Bob center stage without harp then keyboard)
9. Highway 61 Revisited (Bob on keyboard)
10. Forgetful Heart (Bob center stage on harp, Donnie on viola)
11. Thunder On The Mountain (Bob on keyboard)

That Hop Farm show was excellent! I was front and centre. 8)

Nothing too notable happened at the London Feis show, other than it rained a lot. Hence why I forgot about it.

I wasn't at The Hop Farm and wasn't going to The Feis until they started selling Bob Dylan only tickets. I got in in time to see The Cranberries, Christy Moore and Bob Dylan. Most of the rain had eased by the time I got there but it was a bit of a mud bath. A group of us started singing 'Tie A Yellow Ribbon' just before Dylan took to the stage. Got the bus from Finsbury Park to Kings Cross and then got the train back home. When I got off at our station I saw a bloke I know with his grandson. Their shoes were caked wit mud. I asked them if they enjoyed seeing Bob Dylan, they looked at me in disbelief until I said the shoes were a giveaway! Not the best gig, but a fun time. Glad I didn't buy a weekend ticket as Van Morisson was on the Sunday and some of the trains were on strike!

It's a shame this ain't a week later... If it were, I could totally bullshit my family into believing I really wanted to spend Easter with them, while flying home just to see Bob. :lol: As it is, I'll have to wait for Rome. :|

Forgot to add the speculation part: Spanish dates will probably be announced soon too, since Spain is kind of on the way back to "central" Europe.

Doubt he'll start in such a large venue as the one in Lisbon?

Bob Dylan atua em março na Altice Arena
29 nov 2017 21:08 MadreMedia
Esta será a sétima vez que o músico norte-americano vai atuar em Portugal.

Bob Dylan vai atuar em Lisboa, na Altice Arena, em Lisboa, no dia 22 de março.

Esta será a sétima vez que o músico norte-americano vai atuar em Portugal, a primeira desde que recebeu o prémio Nobel da Literatura por “ter criado novas expressões poéticas no âmbito da música norte-americana”.

Os bilhetes serão colocados à venda esta sexta-feira, dia 1 de dezembro, e os preços podem variar entre os 39 euros e os 240 euros.

Dylan tinha já marcadas seis datas em Itália para o próximo ano, mas apenas para o mês de abril.

“O seu portfólio é hoje de valor incalculável com temas como ‘Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again’, ‘Just Like a Woman’, ‘Blowin' in the Wind’, ‘The Times They are A-Changin’, ‘A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall’, ‘All Along the Watchtower’, ‘Mr Tambourine Man’ ou ‘Like a Rolling Stone’”, lembrou a promotora em comunicado.


Em março deste ano, Dylan lançou “Triplicate”, um álbum triplo, o primeiro da sua carreira, com 30 versões de clássicos da música norte-americana.

Dois meses depois, a cidade de Lisboa recebeu a conferência “I’m Not There”, que reuniu na Universidade Nova músicos e investigadores para debater e discutir a obra do músico.

De 1993 a 2008, 6 concertos revisitados

Dylan deu seis concertos em Portugal, os primeiros em 1993, no Porto e em Lisboa, e o último em 2008, em contexto de festival, em Algés.

A estreia em palcos portugueses aconteceu em julho de 1993, no Coliseu do Porto e no Pavilhão de Cascais, com Sérgio Godinho e a norte-americana Laurie Anderson a assegurarem a primeira parte de ambos.

"No Porto, Bob Dylan chegou a passear sozinho pelas ruas da cidade, acompanhado apenas por um segurança". No concerto em Cascais, "apresentou versões praticamente irreconhecíveis das suas melhores canções", escrevia a agência Lusa na altura.

Translation: (my best trying)

Bob Dylan will present a show in Lisbon, at Altice Arena, on March 22nd.

This will be the seventh time that the north-american singer will stop in Portugal, but the first time since he recieved the Nobel Prize in Literature due to "the creation of new poetic expressions in north-american music".

Ticket sales will start this Friday, December 1st, and the range of prices varies between 39 and 240 euros.

Dylan had already schedule six dates in Italy for the next year, but only for the month of April.

"His portfolio has an untold value with songs like "Stuck inside of a mobile with the Memphis Blues Again", "Just Like a Woman", "Blowin' in the Wind", "The Times They Are A-Changin", "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall", "All Along the Watchtower", "Mr. Tambourine Man" or "Like a Rolling Stone".

This March, Dylan released "Triplicate", a triple album, the first one in his carrer, with 30 versions of north-american classic songs.

Two months later, the city of Lisbon recieved the conference "I'm Not There" that united in Nova University, musicans and researchers to debate Dylan's songs.

Dylan was in Portugal 6 times. The first one in 1993, in Oporto, then in Cascais and Lisbon and finally in 2008 in Algés in Nos Alive festival.

"In Oporto, Dylan walked in the street with just one security" and "In Cascais, Dylan presented unrecognizable versions of his best songs", wrote Lusa News Agency.

Even though it looks extremelly unlikely (maybe near impossible), i do hope that he does something in the UK, even 1 date will be great.

As Milan sold out so quickly I wouldn't be surprised if they added another show there?
