Post subject:  What shows have you been to?

I'd like to try to create a database containing information of who has seen Dylan, and where. It'll be formed into a list, starting with the earliest shows, and ending with his most latest. Expecting Rain has certainly made itself into a community, so hopefully this list will intrigue discussion about the shows, either past or present. I know there's a poster here who attended the Royal Albert Hall show, so the range of shows attended should stretch quite aways. It would also be nice to see which of us attended the same concerts, and further discuss. Hopefully this works out well!

So, first step... collecting the information.

Here's mine:

8/4/04 Brockton, Massachusetts
4/17/05 Boston, Massachusetts
11/11/06 Boston, Massachusetts
11/12/06 Boston, Massachusetts

If you have any trouble remembering, here's a good site.

I've seen pretty much most UK/Ireland shows since the '84 Santana joint tour... I've missed a few (10-15 performances) for one reason or another... and hopefully, I'll add to my total... I've even been sober at some shows!... just a few, mind!

I've only been to three shows.

First one - September 30, 1978 at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Missed the fist couple of songs because my buddy wanted to score some booze by hanging outside of a liquor store asking guys as they came out if they would buy it for us. We were 15. We missed the train from NJ and had to catch the next one. I'm still pissed at him about that. We didn't get any booze, either. The only thing I recall from that show was that some guy got up on the stage and ran towards Bob and security carried him off.

Second one - June 18 1995 at Giants Stadium. He was on tour with the Grateful Dead. He wasn't playing with them, it was his own band. He played first and it was kind of odd because the place was only 1/4 full. Most of the audience was still getting stoned in the parking lot.

Third one - April 13, 1997 at William Paterson college Rec Center in NJ. That was a good one, I brought my minidisc recorder and recorded most of the show. I posted the recording on this site a year or two ago.

EDIT - did some research to confirm the dates.

The list is coming out just fine. But for the sake of keeping the dates organized the same way, I would prefer it be given with month, day, year. I know, it's different in Europe. Thanks.

I can't believe I'm submitting to this date in the wrong order thing. It's only because I sympathise with Tambo's job; but as long as we all know it's the WRONG way. Anyway:

2/1991 - Hammersmith, London. I don't remember exactly which night. But it was just awful, in every regard. Looking at the set lists, I'd say the 8th or the 13th. I think the 8th, actually.

2/7/1993 - Hammersmith, London. Slightly less awful. Notable for the complete collapse of Don't Think Twice, it's All Right; Dylan told us "Tony's gonna do a bass solo now" and then left Garnier to absolutely die onstage as said bass solo fell apart. Dylan assured us that, despite this, "he can really play"; and then dryly confided "maybe I'll get rid of him". The crowd, of course, went mad because Dylan was talking to the audience.

6/29/1996 - Hyde Park, London. Not at all bad; he started with Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat, and had Ron Wood and Al Kooper with him. The first time I saw him and thought he was actually good.

10/5/1997 - Wembley Arena, London. What seemed like an average show sounds very much better on the bootleg Love Sick At Wembley. The inclusion of You Ain't Goin' Nowhere, Blind Willie McTell and Love Sick made it all seem much more enjoyable. Terrible sound, terrible seats, terrible venue (then). My wife said she would have enjoyed it much more if she'd heard a single word that he'd been singing.

11/25/2003 - Brixton Academy, London. I know precinct 14 was at this show too, and I think we're in agreement that it rocked the roof off. The opening one-two punch of Wicked Messenger and Yeh Heavy! And A Bottle Of Bread was just unbeatable.

4/15/07 - Wembley Arena, London. Dare I say, the best I've seen him? His singing was unbelievably precise and I heard every word. And they've done something to Wembley Arena, because the sound was bloody wonderful. The Phantom Of the Opera's high points were my low points; but I agree with him having heard a recording of the night. Having dragged my twelve year old daughter along, it never occurred to me that she'd actually like it. But she did, and that made the evening even better.

As a new Dylan-fan (who really discovered him last year at his 65th birthday) I saw only these two great shows:
21. 04. 07 Frankfurt Jahrhunderthalle
03. 05. 07 Berlin Max-Schmelinghalle.

Hope he'll be back in Germany next year!

So far in 2007: Duluth (Atlanta), Jones Beach and Bethel Woods, NY.

I thought I'd been to a lot of Dylan shows (lost count at about 25), but we met a woman last night who said she's seen Bob 274 times! They confiscated the roses that she'd planned on giving Bob at the door. Must be some kind of Homeland Security measures.

Great show! Delbert McManus was great all by his lonesome. Amos Lee were also in fine form!
