Sadly I didn't get to attend this one, so I can't give any more details, but a friend who went described it as the best Dylan gig he's been to (and he's seen a couple of dozen in the '80s and '90s). - Steve

This was the best Dylan performance I've seen Since '66.His voice was perfect. No problems at all. Good articulation, no mumbles, no long drawls. And no monotone stretching of tunes with crazy ups and downs at the end of lines. Here was a man completely in charge of his band, his audience and himself. The arrangements to TAMBOURINE MAN, MASTERS,TWIST OF FATE were magnificent. THE BEST EVER. I envy all of you who are yet to see him on this tour! BOB IS DEFINITELY BACK. WONDERFUL.

Interesting choice of songs for Manchester - Most likely you'll go your way with the line "the judge he hold a grudge, watch out he don't call on you" and "I'll remember you" in the light of the last time he came to Manchester and the "Judas" call. Does he still remember/forgive the Manchester audience? Has he sung these songs at other recent dates this tour? especially at the same venue? Kev.
