2:05 on this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnBe8BNZyxI

Why does Tony/George begin to end the song only 2 minutes in?

Was anyone at the show and saw what was going on on-stage?

Maybe Tony misinterpreted Bobs headmovement at 1:40 as a nod. I've seen him nod to Tony as a sign for the guys to wrap it up before. Or they just feel asleep on the job. Who could blame them after playing the set for 4 years... Didn't a similair thing happen during Tough Mama back in -07/08?

Yes, I think it was in Amsterdam, but in that case the band actually stopped and Bob sang the last verse by himself. It was back in the "crazy organ" days, too. Good fun.

George x up. You can hear a flat from him then he goes dead silent.

Is there a recording of this anywhere? Would be interesting to hear!

I remember hearing this but first time seeing the vid. So funny, I wonder why he didn’t just stop and pretend the song was over even if the band messed up. Not a particularly inspired version but the extra verse just turns it into a trainwreck.

These were the lost forgotten years in my book, summer of 2011 he started showing signs of life again with that viscious Can’t Wait during the summer tour in Italy. Then 2012 he found his step again and was amazing.

Yeah some parts of 2011 actually had a fair bit of grunt to them. The inspired inclusion of Gonna Change My Way of thinking to open up the shows for example.

Thanks for the clip, that's funny! Love that even the lights go out and Bob is playing on in the dark for a moment.

Agree with the above that 2011 had a lot of good moments but that he's gotten better each year since then.

My first show was in 2011 in London. I checked out some reviews for the gig in the paper shortly after and one of them said "Dylan played his muddiest shows since the 80s" but listening back to shows from 2005-2009 that seems like pure fake news

Haha, that's funny :lol: :lol:
Bob is like "I've learned that verse, now I want to sing it, no matter what!!" But yeah, it's a trainwreck :lol:

I always thought quite the opposite.
The band stops, the lights go down and Bob rescues a crappy performance.
Thanks for the vid Eternal!

Yes!
IMHO, something happened in 2011 and it was a re-emergence of sorts.

I had to think about that, too. I was close enough to stage to witness the angry looks Bob gave to the band

Maybe it was the process of writing the songs for Tempest that woke him up.

Somethin's happenin here, that’s for sure:

For sure. That's a classic performance.
I think Joey was one of the LUCKY ones to witness it in-person!

In the band's defence Bob had given a few nods before they end and does look a little pissed off and he's just leaning on the keyboard as if waiting for them to end the song!
