Ok, I've not mentioned this, but it's time the emperor's clothes were revealed.
I heard it at the Glasgow show, and managed to ignore it.
But now I've listened to the boot.

The piano playing!!!

Jeez, it's awful. Just no, please.

Even up close the Norwegian Bob-lookalike looks exactly like Bob. And he wears all the cowboy gear. There was also another older Swedish gentleman in a fringed swede jacket and cowboy hat, so we were getting a lot of stares. Apparently the Norwegian chap was even stopped for an autograph on the way to the Armadillo.

The guy that approached us was a youngish hipster type with a beard. He was visibly very nervous and had clearly been thinking of what to say. I sort of got a glimpse into what it must be like to be Bob. He was so nervous. It was pretty funny though.

Viktor123 can also back up that it was definitely not Bob Dylan in the Crowne Plaza before the gig on Sunday. :lol:

I can also confirm we were indeed drinking Becks.

We went into the Crowne Plaza after the show and the bar staff thought the group were Bob and the band. They gave me a funny look when I chuckled and almost choked on my fresh orange. My wee lassies commented on the similarity but even they know Bob having a drink in the Crowne Plaza...more chance of him having a dip in the Clyde !

Just heard the recording of the Glasgow show, it just sounds like all the others, for the most part dull and repetitive.

Regardless, I probably should have found a way to attend, most likely my last chance to see Bob in Glasgow and I am no longer willing to travel further afield to see him, unless it is Edinburgh or somewhere nearby.

I've also been to the show, and I have to admit I truly enjoyed it. It was my wife and myself, seeing Dylan for the first time.
I've been collecting Dylan records and books for most of my adult life, but never had the opportunity to see him in concert. I was either in the wrong city or in the wrong mood, so I had never managed to make it. But this time I had the tickets since December 13th, my birthday, the day they went for sale. So I was counting the minutes for the event.
My wife, by the way, was as excited as myself. She could not help shouting a little when he went into the stage.
Great experience.

During the concert, I thought I had seen a guy that works at my office so I asked him the day after. And yes, it was him. We've been chatting for a little while and he seemed to be quite into Dylan. He knew the setlist in advance, he was aware of To Ramona substituting Don’t Think Twice, and other things like that... The kind of things that not every member of an average Dylan concert audience would know, I bet you know what I mean. Maybe he's a member of expectingrain, who knows -I wish he is.

The thing is that he told me he had taken a hotel room nearby the Armadillo, in order to avoid drinking and driving. Apparently he does not live in city centre, so he went for a room in the Crowne Plaza. So, right before the concert, he thought he would have a beer before heading the Armadillo, and he went downstairs to the Crowne Plaza bar.
And guess who he saw there? Bob Dylan himself!
He was having a beer with his crew, apparently he went to the bar himself, to order everyone’s beers (he had a Beck’s, by the way -my work colleague asked the barman afterwards). Apparently, nobody went to speak with him, I suppose they didn’t want to bother the man.
Isn’t that great? I was honestly freaking out when he told me! Great story, isn’t it?

:lol: :oops:

That wasn't Bob Dylan... that was a Norwegian fellow who follows Bob who looks the exact spitting image of current day Dylan, and also dresses like him too. I know this, because I was sitting beside 'Bob Dylan' when your friend approached him. We really did look like Bob's band and entourage though, we were all in sunglasses and hats. It was too funny/embarrassing to say anything, plus, I didn't want to ruin his experience.

Sorry to bump such an old thread but this is absolutely brilliant. I want to meet Norway Bob. :lol:

I really wanted to go to this gig but it was the day after a wedding where I was best man and I was worried it would be wasted on me with a serious hangover. I was right, the hangover was catastrophic, but I still should have gone. :(

That was exactly one year ago.
Still a few more Euro shows to go then.
AND the Summer was lined up.
