Rock- und Pop-Konzerte im April

Große Namen machen im April Station in deutschen Konzerthallen, darunter eine Britpop-Ikone und ein Oscar-Gewinner. Auch die musikalische Bandbreite ist enorm. Es gibt kultigen Trash und Songs aus der Feder eines Literatur-Nobelpreisträgers.

BOB DYLAN hat nicht nur als einziger Rockmusiker den Literaturnobelpreis gewonnen, er ist für viele einer der wichtigsten Songwriter der jüngeren Geschichte. Der US-Amerikaner gilt als Wegbereiter der Folk- und Rockmusik und verkaufte in seiner Karriere bislang mehr als 110 Millionen Platten. Und er geht offenbar immer noch gerne auf Tour. Ein Jahr nach seinen letzten Gastspielen kommt Dylan im April zurück nach Deutschland. Mit seiner Band präsentiert er viele seiner größten Hits, etwa den Klassiker "Blowin' In The Wind". Der 76-Jährige gastiert in Neu-Ulm (12.4.), Leipzig (18.4.), Krefeld (19.4.), Bielefeld (21.4.), Nürnberg (22.4.) und Baden-Baden (23.4.).

As web-translated:

Rock and Pop concerts in April

Big names will make stops in German concert halls in April, including a Britpop icon and an Oscar winner. The musical range is enormous. There are iconic trash and songs written by a Nobel laureate in literature.

BOB DYLAN has not only won the Nobel Prize for Literature as the only rock musician, for many he is one of the most important songwriters of recent history. The American is considered a pioneer of folk and rock music and sold in his career so far more than 110 million records. And he obviously still likes going on tour. One year after his last guest appearances, Dylan returns to Germany in April. With his band he presents many of his greatest hits, such as the classic "Blowin 'In The Wind". The 76-year-old guest in Neu-Ulm (12.4.), Leipzig (18.4.), Krefeld (19.4.), Bielefeld (21.4.), Nuremberg (22.4.) And Baden-Baden (23.4.).

Rory Gallagher - Deep Elm Blues (with Roland Van Campenhout) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylQH_tAoKVM&t=40m52s



Wheels Within Wheels is a blues-orientated acoustic rock album by Rory Gallagher. Featuring a range of acoustic styles including flamenco, skiffle and traditional Irish music, the album was compiled from lost recordings and outtakes by Gallagher's brother Donal and released posthumously. A number of notable musicians appeared on the album, and the songs were recorded in various locations all over the world between 1974 and 1994.

Funny, Schools,
Original opening line of this thread was Neu-Ulm Blues,
but didn’t think anyone would get it.
Thus “Bob in Germany”

Just listening to Time out of mind and thinking how great some of these songs could easily slip into the setlist. Million miles and Not Dark yet would be nice...

This was my first show this year, so I can only compare it to the earlier recordings. It was a routine show I'd say, nothing special really. Sound was muffled during the first few songs, got better - and we did not see any soundproblems this time. Half of a line was missing in Soon After Midnight but that was just Bob messing it up I think. The star-background has gone on Soon After Midnight, btw.

Strong performances were Trying To Get To Heaven and Desolation Row which featured very little vocal gymnastics today and barely any weird up- and downscalesinging that regulary kills the song for me. Crowd loved the three standards - mostly because one could see Bob center stage here probably. The view from the middle section of the floor was really bad. You cound see his boots and his hair during the "sitting-songs" and boots, head & shoulders during the "standing-songs". When performing center stage (well: back stage I should say) Bob walks like Herbert Knebel now.

First huge roar from the crowd came after the short "solo" George plays in "Thunder" and the following break. Many people on the cheap seats seem to be a bit bored by the very stripped down and stale style most arrangements have been turned into. The lady next to me told me afterwards: "Des woar zum Fiass aischloafa!"

Love Sick sort of fell flat tonight. Here and during some other songs Bob was actually speaking the lyrics instead of singing them. The hammering piano attacks did work sometimes, sometimes not.

Swabian dialect for "Das war zum Füße einschlafen" = that made your feet go numb = that was very boring.

This is the Herbert Knebel & Bob Dylan walking style nowadays: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ht1nbNtn-BA

He’s walked with a limp for years, I remember watching him walking into a venue in 2004 and he had a noticeable limp. Maybe another motorcycle mishap?

At a certain age, your body can just generally be worn out - wouldn't be too surprising considering Bob's lifestyle. I'm sure he'd have the money to get the best medical treatment available, but in your mid-70s, hip or knee surgery can easily take yout of of the game for six months or so. And I wouldn't be surprised if Bob felt that taking six months off from touring at this point is not an option.

Funny enough, Schoolie, was last there early this year, in January.
When I go, I always put my money in my shoes.

thinman's review sums it up pretty well. Just another day on the job for Mr. Dylan. Everybody on stage seemed likely to fall asleep any second. There was no energy. Highlight was the little drum solo during Thunder. I guess there were some new lyrics (at least new to me) in TUIB and Twist of Fate.
A guy sitting behind me said he hadn`t seen Dylan live in 40 years. I guess he was in for a few surprises :lol:
All in all this show was nothing special to me. I've seen better shows, I've seen worse shows.

It was the first time I noticed Bob's walk. From the distance I would say some problem with the hip. But at his age, what can you do? We should feel lucky that he is still going that strong, touring the world and everything.
