I saw 'Spots' 2018-08-11 Adelaide, Australia recording,
and from memory i don't recall seeing any songs from
''Shadows in the Night'', ''Fallen Angels''or ''Triplicate''
in that show.
I've only been away about 7 months but if i recall back then
Dylan was including quite a few of those crooner cover versions.
I've got no 2018 shows aside from the one mentioned above, has
Bob more or less abandoned those Sinatra type songs?
I personally found very little joy in his previous 3 studio albums,
but i was wondering if he's stopped playing those covers, and
if perhaps he's got a new album in the works?

You've been away for 7 months, and in one post, you've pretty much covered the entire range of ER discussion topics for the past 7 months (well, if you add "when is the BOTT bootleg finally coming out?" to your list). Congratulations!

Less cheeky response:
He seems to have abandoned the Sinatra tunes starting in Asia (Autumn Leaves was played in South Korea, but that was it, I believe). Most seem relieved, even if his vocal delivery on those tunes was consistently very good. The consensus is that he's singing his own tunes with a renewed level of commitment and musicality, which maybe makes the foray into the Great American Songbook worth it (well, maybe not Triplicate, but your mileage may vary).

As for a new album, there have been rumors and rumors of rumors, but nothing has panned out. If you hear anything, let us know. It's been a long time since Tempest came out...

That response brought a smile to my face :)
Thanks for letting me know about the original songs being brought
back instead of the Sinatra tracks.
He did sing those songs very well no doubt about that, but those
three albums just did nothing for me.
