Chuck prophet's gig in Spain in December with Charlie Sexton has just been cancelled, the Spanish promoters apparently saying Bob needs Charlie. Any ideas what for? No gigs announced and bob doesn't usually tour in December

Could it be that they are doing Santa's grotto in Reindeer Land? At last! Obviously Bob wll be Santa and the boys will be his helpers.

Maybe Charlie just doesn’t want to miss Bob’s annual white elephant Christmas party. I hear Tony makes a helluva gingerbread house!

Hopefully, in an ideal world, they’ll be in the studio recording a new original album! More likely though is that some NYC dates will be added or something. Prophet’s tour only goes until December 8, and Bob’s tour has dipped into early December before (2014 for example).

Bob and Charlie always put up the Christmas decorations together. If you've ever seen Bob's extensive light display, you can understand why he needs the help. :wink:

There were December dates in 1997 following Time Out of Mind, and I’m hanging on to my hopes that a new Dylan album will be unexpectedly “dropped”, like how the kids do it these days.

he didn't play shows in Dec 1997 because of TOOM but rather because he had to cancel a lot of shows that year due to illness

I know the club shows in Chicago and elsewhere were not makeup shows at all but promo for TOOM.


Don’t rain on my imaginary parade, man!!

Crossing fingers for the live recording of the Christmas album including all the outtakes!

Make it so Bob!

Does anyone else remember the week Christmas in the Heart came out? I had a fixed budget and decided to go with be Bob's album rather than Bonnie Prince Billy's I See a Darkness, a so-called indie record I have yet to hear. CITH sounded OK with it's palm-tree breeziness and D. Hidalgo's keyboards, but I would sooner put on Judy Collins' Christmas album, and I don't even get along with her

You really should give it a listen. Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) is an incredible songwriter and musician.

Oops I meant to reply to Mike. We all know how Untroddie feels about CITH!

Seems like a logical hypothesis, Gale.
One which I am biased towards...

Bob normally finishes tour in november so if there is truth in the Charlie story I reckon it means Bob is hitting the studio.

Normally they do finish in November, but some have gone into December. In 2014 the last NYC date on December 3 wasn't announced until October 6, only 11 days before the tour started. I think if this story is true and Bob does need the band, it's probably because some extra dates (probably in NYC again) are being planned and will probably be announced at some point soon, making it impossible for Charlie to play with Prophet during the first week of December. That being said, I hope I'm proven wrong and something extra sweet is being cooked up!

I was in California – attending shows in Berkely and Hollywood. And I bought the album somewhere there.

There's also the outside chance that he's planning a prize draw via Expecting Rain and the winner gets a home visit from Dylan and his band to play in your front room.

You can request 25 songs which will be performed live for you and no more than 10 people.

Brown towels in assorted sizes, soft drinks and a bottle of Jack Daniels along with ashtrays must be provided.

Now where's that list of never performed live songs!
