Same songs, different running order every night - seems to be the new trick.

Hoping that all the Dylan fans there in Paris are well and have no trouble. And everyone else, though these two poor policeman aren't for sure.

So sad these things happening again.

By the way, just one week ago I had travelled to Lingen to see Bob, passing near Dortmund, where there was the attack to Borussia Dortmund. Seems this tour is sadly linked to terrorism.

What a drag.

"Pierre-Henry Brandet, the interior ministry spokesman, has said one police officer was killed and two seriously wounded. He said reports of two dead were incorrect. The attacker has not been identified, he said.

He also said there was only one shooting and reports of a second were incorrect.

Mr Brandet said police had a name for the gunman and it matched a suspect known to security services but the attacker’s fingerprints had not been matched with those of the suspect.

He confirmed that the attacker was shot dead as he tried to run away."

My friend Jordi told me he wasn't aware of the shooting and everything fine in their zone and no sign of having happened anything.

Two years ago, the attacks in Paris during the fall tour.
However, it is not linked to Dylan's tours any more than to anything else. It seems there is an attack every other day now, no matter what else is happening in the world. Where is peace?

No one in the hall seemed to know what had happened. Dylan played the usual program. No! Outstanding versions of Melancholy Mood, Duquesne Wistle, Tangled Up in Blue... He sings MM not melancholic, but with defiant sharpness. DW is a musical orgy. Inspired interplay of piano and band. Dylans voice was again great, but seemed less consistent for me than in Hamburg. He sounded sometimes weaker and hoarse, especially singing some Sinatra songs. This was perhaps a problem of sound and seating. The show suddenly was getting louder (??). The great Desolation Row reached me better than in Hamburg. It represented Dylan's current style on stage for me. Many songs like small dramatic plays. The band sets fine effects and Dylan's voice like in dialogue. That also made Spirit on the Water and Soon After Midnight again surprisingly great for me. And the Tempest songs like rough pictures in bright colors. I often had to think of music cabaret. A woman, leaving the venue, combined two words to describe the concert: Variete-chanson. In front of the stage this time barriers were set up. Because of the violence in the town my thoughts soon went away from the show.

Hi all, dvd here, just got home safe from Paris. I was unaware of the terrorist attacks until this morning but was at the Rodin exhibition between 4.00 and 5.00 yesterday afternoon which wasn't that far from where it all kicked off later in the evening.
I always stay in the Cambronne area of Paris which is south of the Eiffel Tower. It was 27 Metro stops away from Porte de Pantin where le Zenith is located. I arrived there at about 7.30, went through the tight security controls and went straight to my seat. One of the strangest venues I've been to, as I entered the seating area a guy asked to see my ticket and then waved a girl over who took me to my seat (in the raised area behind the floor but in front of the mixing desk). The girl said they were low paid and depended on tips, I gave her a one euro and this seemed pretty standard procedure for all others entering. You weren't allowed to find your own seat although with the lighting on it would not have been a problem.
Anyhow the show was billed as starting at 8.00pm on the ticket but by 7.50 there were still lots of empty seats and the queue of people waiting to be seated was significantly building up. It was about 8.10 when the lights finally dimmed and Stu Kimball did his acoustic bit. People were still coming in, being led by the girls with torches and some people were still being seated six songs into the set. The Zenith resembles a big square box, it was very hot where I was seated and the seats of the moulded plastic type were quite uncomfortable with little legroom.
The set was a so-so sort of performance. The sound was pretty good where I was seated but the performance of Things Have Changed was one of the worst I have seen. Dylan was barking out of synch with the band and I feared for the rest of the show. Don't Think Twice was better but it was Highway 61 before things came to life. Love Sick and all the songs from Tempest were superbly performed. Charlies intro into Melancholy Mood was exquisite and Bob performed that well. That Old Black Magic isn't a song I personally like but Dylan performed it with panache and I ended up enjoying that as well. Stormy Weather was pretty grim though, as was I Could Have Told You. Missed the harmonica breaks on Tangled, replaced by a Charlie Sexton guitar solo. Does anyone know why Bob is not playing harmonica this tour?
By the time Long and Wasted years came around the seating had won and I succumbed to cramp in my left leg. Luckily I was only three away from the end of the row so got up and tried walking it off by taking a bathroom break. That did the trick, but I missed some / most of Autumn Leaves. Blowing and BOATM were given great ovations as was Desolation Row - these are the songs your public want to hear Bob. Roll on the Palladium. I left straight for the Metro as BOATM ended, on the walkway back to the station police had disrupted all those sellers of unofficial posters and shirts. Got the train home and thought, not bad but I've seen better. Someone had offered me a ticket for the second Paris show but what with everything else going on I have to say I'm pretty pleased I declined it.

Beautiful exposition, Kle. Like reading poetry. Thank you!

I don't know, but I guess because he doesn't feel like to.

Looks like an interesting article, is your offer of translation still open. I did enjoy the Rodin exhibition. I arrived in Paris at the Gare du Nord at 2.00, went to my hotel and checked in leaving my bag in the room and headed straight off to the Grand Palais. I arrived there at 3.35 (my timed entry slot was 3.30) but had to join a queue and got in there just after 4.00. Spent an hour and twenty mins there and just had time for something to eat before heading off to the Zenith. Was going to do the shops and centre Sat morn but with all that happened I wandered around the hotel area before catching the train home.
