One Night!

April 9, 2017 Lund, Sweden
Sunday

Sparbanken Skåne Arena
Capacity: 3000
Showtime: 7:30 PM

This is the 6th show of the 2017 Never Ending Tour


Bob Dylan Announces Sweden Concerts Following Nobel Prize
New Nobel laureate will perform two shows in Stockholm, one in Lund

Two days after Bob Dylan missed the ceremony in which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, the singer announced he will play three Sweden shows on his European tour. The new Nobel laureate will perform at the Stockholm Waterfront on April 1st and 2nd and in Lund on April 9th at Sparbanken Skane Arena.

A requisite of the Nobel honor is that laureates must deliver a lecture about their field of expertise within six months of the distinction. After Dylan announced that he would not attend the Nobel gala, the Swedish Academy said they were hopeful that Dylan's lecture would take place when his European tour stopped through Sweden.

"There is a chance that Bob Dylan ... will have a perfect opportunity to deliver his lecture," the Swedish Academy said in November. If Dylan delivers a lecture, he'll receive the $870,000 prize that comes with winning a Nobel Prize. However, Dylan has not made any statement about giving a lecture yet.

During Saturday's Nobel ceremony in Stockholm, Dylan sent a "speech of thanks" that was read by Azita Raji, the U.S. ambassador to Sweden. "I'm sorry I can't be with you in person, but please know that I am most definitely with you in spirit and honored to be receiving such a prestigious prize," Dylan wrote.

"Being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature is something I never could have imagined or seen coming. From an early age, I've been familiar with and reading and absorbing the works of those who were deemed worthy of such a distinction: Kipling, Shaw, Thomas Mann, Pearl Buck, Albert Camus, Hemingway. These giants of literature whose works are taught in the schoolroom, housed in libraries around the world and spoken of in reverent tones have always made a deep impression. That I now join the names on such a list is truly beyond words."

The capacity is really about 4400, not 3000. It's 3000 at sport events when the floor is occupied.
I remember the last concert in Lund well. It was extrememly hot. I was standing on the floor quite close to the stage. Dylan was sweating a lot. Well, so was all of us. I was so close I could see the sweat drop from his forehead to the floor.
Dylan skipped the last encore, possibly because it was so hot in the hall. I'll never forget the great version of "Shelter From the Storm" he played that night.
Dylan is back in Lund tomorrow night and I'm there as well, but the venue is different.

Strange too see these setlists from 1997-...? again. Leaving out the covers, 3 out of 16 songs were taken from seventies, 11 from the sixties, only two from 1980 onwards....

One last beer and then we're off to the venue. If the setlist is even REMOTELY close to the one at the last Lund concert I would be overwhelmed. I'd be quite happy with the Stockholm setlist as well though.

Fingers crossed for a great show, if someone from the forum is up for a beer afterwards just let me know!

What times and concerts they were! Almost every evening a new surprise ... sigh ... endless guitar duels between Larry, Charlie and Bob ... sigh ... backup vocals by Charlie and Larry ... sigh ... beautiful acoustic arrangements ... sigh ... sad to say: "The Times They Are A-Changin'"! :?

If it´s anything like the two Copenhagen shows, it will be wonderful.

I think some people might have been surprised that it was nowhere near as exciting as the last time he hit town ;-)

If it's surprises you're after you'd probably be better off buying a Kinder Egg...

Yeah, I suggest that Bill Pagel shuts down his site, now that he can't even deliver the setlist within five minutes of the show ending anymore. ;-)
