Do we know what brand it is? Steinway? Or does it vary per venue?

A lot of big name musicians generally rent or use the house piano, or tour with a keyboard (Ray Charles often toured with a keyboard unless it was a major event).

Bob used a Yamaha Motif (ES7, 8) and Korg during the 2000s.

Does he now tote around a grand piano or is it rented/provided by the venue?

It's a Yamaha piano. I think a C1. Some have suggested that it's the digital version of the acoustic C1. Yamaha does offer digital versions of their acoustic pianos, but I think I saw somebody tune the piano on stage, so I would assume it's an acoustic piano. I also think they are carrying around their own piano and do not rent it locally.

Well, yes and no, maybe? I'd assume that they travel with one and the same piano as well (Dylan not attending soundcheck and then playing a piano he's never touched before would seem odd, also, why limit yourself to a baby grand if you rent locally?), but I'd also assume that they rent one for each tour, not hauling a piano personally owned by Dylan around the world? It would cost a fortune and the instrument would most certainly suffer.

Yes, they probably have/had one for Europe, one for each US tour, one for Japan etc.
