Or anything from the 70's.
Tangled is the only one represented.

Shouldn't "I Once Knew a Man" be on here? Or doesn't Letterman count as a live performance? And what about "Across the Borderline"? That one was performed a few times... Sorry, not nitpicking, just genuinly pleased with myself for spotting it ;)

Stu Kimball??


If you mean "Ladies and gentlemen please welcome the poet laureate of rock 'n' roll. The voice of the promise of the 60's counterculture....."
That Intro was spoken by Al Santos, his stage manager

I believe it stopped around 2012/13

I Once Knew A Man, is a little too rare for the list I think.
But I've added Across The Borderline.

Rambling Gambling Willie, I don't see that in the list, am I missing it?

I wonder when Bob last did that one.

He never did it live, only twice in 1962 but in studio.

Could you add "Lakes of Pontchartrain", "Wild Mountain Thyme" and "Dixie" to the list (traditional songs)?
The last performance of "Lakes of Pontchartrain" was at Nashua, New Hampshire, July 6th, 1991.
The last performance of "Wild Mountain Thyme" was at Cincinnati, Ohio, June 22th, 1988.
The last performance of "Dixie" was at Danbury, Connecticut, May 11th, 1991.

Also, "Playboys & Playgirls" to "Other original songs". Seems to have been performanced at Newport, Rhode Island, july 28th, 1963, according to this source: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/bob-dyla ... 33fe4.html

Thanks for the list!

I think this one was performed by Pete Seeger.

Here's the recording from that day proving that in fact Bob sang that song:

Actually, it was sung in duet by Pete and Bob.

Still, as a greedy European I'd like to see him play here again no matter which songs... it's been too long. 8)


Yeah, interesting indeed. I was under the impression that there had been the odd show even in recent time where he brought out a bunch of older songs, but evidently not.

Who would have thought that the end of that particular European tour (as Lörrach *was* the last show of that tour), would signal the retirement (possibly for good) of so many, and so many classic songs. Seems like that show/tour - almost three years ago now - was the last time (so far) that he was willing to play a whole lot of older material.

well, the European summer tour of 2015 was already an exception, i.e. the only tour since the introduction of THE SET that featured a certain variation of songs not included in neither form of THE SET

I do believe the same thing happened during the 2014 EU tour and in both instances, the alternate setlist was used (if I remember correctly exclusively) for Festivals and outdoor shows with a Festival vibe. I don't think that he played anything but THE SET indoors, save for Rome 2013 and that Brisbane club show?

That's what I thought, almost a year now. Scary. He'll stop playing the piano soon and just croon... No mic either. :lol:
