Karten für Konzert von Bob Dylan im Krefeld


Er ist der einzige Rockstar, der mit dem Literatur-Nobelpreis ausgezeichnet wurde. Völlig zurecht, befand das US-Nachrichtenmagazin Newsweek damals und schrieb, Dylan sei für die Popmusik das, was Einstein für die Physik bedeute. Der 76-Jährige ist einer der wichtigsten Wegbereiter der Musik. Am Donnerstag, 19. April, tritt der Musiker im König-Palast auf.

Für das Konzert verlosen wir dreimal zwei Eintrittskarten unter allen, die heute zwischen 11 und 11.15 Uhr anrufen unter Telefon...

Tickets for Concert by Bob Dylan in Krefeld


He is the only rock star awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Completely cope, said the US news magazine Newsweek back then and wrote that Dylan was for pop music what Einstein meant for physics. The 76-year-old is one of the most important pioneers of music. On Thursday, April 19, the musician performs in the King's Palace.

For the concert, we are giving away three tickets twice to all who call today between 11 and 11:15 am by phone ...

It's strange. Krefeld is in a strategic position that should entice french fans as well.

not too surprising – Krefeld is just 25 kilometers away from Düsseldorf where Bob played last year and only a 2 hours ride away from Bielefeld where he's playing on Saturday and it's also a 2 hours ride away from Lingen (he's been there last year, too)
And don't forget: tickets aren't cheap, are they?

I really don't get your hatred for Krefeld, but anyway. Venue not empty at all. Yes, some empty sections and seats, but overall more tickets sold than in Düsseldorf last year. Hope that answers your question.

Show was *zzzzZzzzz*.

As far as I could see it wasn't empty at all.
For me the venue seemed nearly sold out, perhaps a few of the worst seats were still available. In front of me, behind me, besides me - no free seats.
The atmosphere in the arena was quite good, people were content, some enthusiastic.
Bob's voice was sometimes a little bit restrained, but when necessery powerful, perhaps sometimes a little bit coverd by the instruments, but this might have been more a problem of the sound in the venue than a problem of the mix.
My highlight was DESOLATION ROW (this time -thanks God- no scale up and down singing, no piano plonking).
The performances of SIMPLE TWIST. BLOWIN' IN THE WIND, THIN MAN, SOON AFTER MIDNIGHT convinced me too.
DON'T THINK TWICE is always good, if he performs the song excellent or only ordinary good.
LOVE SICK, LONG AND WASTED YEARS are great songs, I liked them again, but Bob and band played them more precise and more powerful in the last years.
HONEST, THUNDER and TANGLED were not my favorites this time.
The audience liked the "Sinatras" (for me they were ok too, although I prefer his own material or covers of other singer/songwriters). When they played the encores many stood thrilled in front of the stage.
I don't remember more, perhaps a tape of this show will help me to judge better.
All in all a good show. The sound could have been better sometimes.
As some others reported from other places: It was a little bit astonishing, that Bob and band needed some time, before they harmonized.

Although the show lacked of innvoation and although the setlist was nothing less than a surprise, it was as always in the last years: It was good to have been there.
(That doesn't mean that Bob shouldn't change the show concept as soon as possible.)

Dylan's singing was very strong throughout the show, the band as tight as ever. I thought Honest, Thunder and Tangled were some of the highlights of the show, because they were like new songs, completely rearranged. Dylan's vocals on the standards Melancholy Mood, Come Rain Or Come Shine and Autumn Leaves were exceptional. I love all five of the records of standards, so it is always great to hear the songs in concert and they always receive the care they deserve.

The hall looked like it was almost sold out.

It's been a great show! Song and dance man...but wait....Dylan's still the song man but the dance man is someone else...Tony Garnier! What fun it was to watch him play today (yesterday). He stepped out of his corner and stood in front of the drums (center stage) during most of the songs. So here a few thoughts:

For the first time Things Have Changed was not a good opener, I don't like the new arrangement. But with Don't Think Twice a great show began! Great singing and great piano playing from Bob (exceptions for the piano Things Have Changed and Love Sick).

Why did nobody mention the amazing new version of Simple Twist of Fate before? Or was it just me. Great playing by Charlie (who was not on spot all the time) and new lyrics. Something like "put your hand in mine" in the second or third verse.

Fun moment during the intro of Melancholy Mood. Bob went center stage and grabbed one of the two mics that were close to Stu and he went to the back but the crowd cheered, so he stepped forward to the center stage mic, "faked" singing and sang the whole song into the first mic but with his hands on the center stage mic. He sang all center stage songs that way.

There was a discussion between Tony, Bob and Charlie before Come Rain or Come Shine and Tony told Stu and George and Stu looked really angry and had to change guitars again. Guess this slot is a wild card...Another discussion before Love Sick.

Highlights: Simple Twist of Fate, Desolation Row, Thunder and an amazing Long and Wasted Years

Highlights and low points are Forever changing but personally I've never been present at a Dylan concert and endured a below par Long and Wasted Years, it's always been a highlight for me!

i really enjoyed this one. the sound sucked though. you couldn't hear the cymbals at all from where i stood/sat (row 44) and the upright bass was a bit buried. still, i enjoyed this show a lot more than i thought it would. maybe i'll go see him again if the opportunity arises and tickets aren't too expensive. i don't think i'd pay above 50-70 for it, but the show as a whole was a really nice experience, even if Dylan definitely has had a lot of rough moments, as par for the course.

Love the ‘at-the-show’ observations Echo, Circle & Gwonam.
Hope, Fog, and everyone else!

So glad you and so many others were able to attend!
The variety of opinions adds to the vibrancy of the insights.

Where we observe from, what’s going on around us,
the pre-show happenings, our mood, our attitude at the time,
what we had for dinner, inhaled, drank, ingested or otherwise,
all uniquely influence our perception, thoughts and experience for each show.

This Europe Tour looks solid.
Great to find a show or three along the way!
Happy for y’all.

...and DVD, what you said regarding L&W, yes.

Same thing happened in Leipzig and I read about it before earlier on the tour. Why don't they just put Come Rain... on their setlist in the first place then?!

Do any bootlegs of this show have surfaced yet?

I didn't like the fact that quite a lot people seemed not to know that the show will start on time at 8 pm and that there was no announcement on that matter. So during the first four or five songs it was very turbulent because of folks bringing in beer and bratwurst and searching their seats.

The show itself was good. Interesting new version of songs, some noisy rock'n'roll style, not too many boring Sinatra stuff. I especially liked Desolation Row and Thunder on the mountain.

There was a train accident on the route from Mönchengladbach to Krefeld at around 18:30 which stopped trains for quite a while. So for those coming from that direction it was nearly impossible to be at the venue on time.

What do you want to say:
A potential taper sat in that train and didn't arrive in time?
So we have to face the fact, that the Krefeld show wasn't taped?
In this case Krefeld's DESOLATION ROW has the chance to grow more and more and will be be the best DESOLATION ROW of this leg in my memory!

I only wanted to clarify why a lot of people arrived real late at the venue.
If I were a taper, which I‘m not, I would not rely on the Deutsche Bahn service. That no tape emerged worries me a bit. No Neu-Ulm tape either. The only known Bielefeld tape is incomplete and Baden-Baden did not emerge yet. Nürnberg is missing still.

Hey, that‘s großer Mist.

Recording finally surfaces. WIll be exciting for me to see if that tape is as bad as I remember the show to be (and if I still think after listening that Bielefed was much better in every aspect).
