I just saw Buckingham/McVie, and Lindsey took 8 minutes introducing the band. Bob plays 1-2 more songs in that time. Gimmie the songs.

"Thank you friends", said Bob after his last song "All along the Watchtower" bevor leaving stage in Vienna some years ago.

seen Dylan so many times...he was really charged up in 74 with THE BAND, but didnt say much,
there was a time at the Meadowlands, NJ...during gospel period i believe, he gave this long speech about a room or rooms with black covered mirrors..
wish i had a transcript !
yeah, MerleHaggard opened for him another time, Beacon Theater, NYC, and good ole Merle, joked around, told stories, crowd loved him...
then good ole BOB came out, played songs, barely acknowledged the audience...guess the same way Dylan dodges publicity...
imagine a young bob in the 60's with today's social media ?
so, he goes from town to town, on a never ending tour, and am sure most of us hope he never stops,
whether he tells us about what he had for dinner last night or not !

Bob addressed his fans, because bevor we had left our seats during his last song, gathered around the stage and looked him straight in his eyes while Bob rocked the hall with his voice and his guitar like Jimmy Hendrix.

Just listened back to a selection of shows from 2004 to 2012
just skipping to the end of the tracks, and every now and then,
he does say ''Thank you'', plus often he'll do what the old timers
used to do in the 40s/50s and take a bow with his band at the
end of the show.
He's not this aloof figure on stage
all the time (although there are some exceptions)

From the opposite side, It is only because Bob was so vocal on the 78 tour, that I was able to pin point he exact date that I first saw him live (Thanks o this wonderful site). After 39 years I had lost my ticket and could not remember which of the Earl's Court gigs I was at. I knew it was one of the first few days of the residency, but was not sure which day. The only clue I had was that just before singing Maggies Farm, he said words to the affect of " The last tine I sang this, I got booed. Thanks to the help of someone on this site (Sorry I have forgotten your name). I was able to tie it down to June the 16th 1978.

There was a quote today in a review from the Indianapolis Monthly
that says that Dylan treats his band members like "pieces of food he
did not order". I thought that was hilarious. I'd expect Bob would be
amused as well.

Entertaining thread! You guys are great.

I don't need Dylan to say thank you. I'm happy if I feel like he put his heart and soul into it. He's already given me enough. I should probably thank him, but I know he probably doesn't need it from me either.

This thread title bothers me because Bob has thanked his audience

Like check out late 90s/00s for the “thank you’s” along with band introductions

I don’t think ‘thank us’ fit the last number of tours given the approach

(Apologies if all this is already covered, just wanted to respond fresh)

P.s. he has always seemed gracious and committed every time I’ve seen him

Unfortunately, Bob Dylan has the biggest pack of cry babies on the planet for fans. Despite touring well into into his senior years, when he could be comfortably retired in his California mansion, he continues traveling the world, staying in cheap hotels, riding in a bus, and putting up with nit picking whiners.
