I meant not on Ballad of a thin man... I had a pretty bad spot, so I cant vouch for the rest. Though I never saw one.


As mentioned earlier, at Stockholm #2 there was no harp. Listen to the recording!

Thank you!!! Thought I had lost my mind for a second.

When did LARS fall out of the equation?

Same as everything else. Start of '13. He has played it a few times since. (Rome 2013, Desert Trip 2016 and probably some other place I can't remember.)

So I missed harp AND LARS... Well, can't have it all.

Every time he did that little foot move at the piano I thought I would burst out laughing. Restless leg syndrome or summat.

Also so many great small changes to the lyrics. Probably not brand new, but great ones. Hopefully some audio will surface.

He did, in fact, play 'Spirit On the Water', I'm afraid to report. And definitely no harp.

Good show, generally, although made a lot more so by the fact that I've generally avoided listening to recent bootlegs over the past couple of years - since the setlists started to stultify, I've found that they detract from, rather than enhancing, the live experience.

No surprises, but a very solid performance - probably the weakest of the last three shows I've seen him play in Oslo (2013 at the Spektrum, the barn he usually plays at, and one of the three 2015 shows at a rather nicer concert hall), but those set the bar extremely high.

Whoops... yes, the unholy S-song trilogy is still there. Scarlet Spirit Soon, indeed.

Ballad of a Thin Man ... nice, let's hope a video appears ... the video of his performance of it at Desert Trip looked to be one of the most spirited Bob performances in a long time

Not as good as the last couple of times I saw him but still a decent concert. Quite a lot of young people enjoying themselves. Love Sick, Desolation and Magic where the highlights for me. Spirit and Midnight were utterly boring though. But I got to see his piano playinhg quite upfront, That was a fun watch

yes Anr Bjotk, thank you so much for your reports! great fun!

so glad you got ballad! it's our Magna Carta

Isn't that the truth, on the first night he played Standing In The Doorway but it's come back once again to haunt proceedings. Of all the songs that need a rest Spirit On The Water must be the prime candidate. At least Ballad of a Thin Man was back for Oslo!
