Hadn't for a while, but picked it up again last year for the first few songs of his sets.
Played it as recently as the last leg of the NET that ended in March.

Maybe he's put it down again... Sad  


So are you going tonight, TTM?

I don't know. I won't know for sure until my nephew shows up here in a couple hours. That last I knew, as of about 10PM last night, that it's not sold out.

A couple of nice inclusions from Time Out of Mind, but otherwise its pretty much along the lines of last year's shows...and without the added bonus of Bob playing guitar on a few songs unfortunately.

Some new (or long lost)  songs would be welcome. Quite what appeal Bob continues to see in 'Tweedle dee' is lost on me.

I think the guitar problem is a physical problem with his arm....Sad And my husband, a HUGE fan, says he doesn't want to hear him sing in person again. Bob's band is great, but he is becoming a shell of what he used to be.....

It's his oblique US election year song.  He's playing it for everybody who may be obliquely listening,

I've always saw it as an election song too, but there hasnt been a US presidental election EVERY year since 2001.

It does fucking seem like it sometimes, though....  Interesting stuff Ronnie!

Depends what youre comparing it to. Compared to the shows from the early 90s - the real nadir of his performing career, his current shows are Rolling Thunder-esque.

Arm?  No way, he has no physical problems (other than his legs get tired and he sometimes shakes them out while on stage) that I can see.  He LOVES, let me repeat, he LOVES to play the keyboard....and is much happier on it cause for one thing he can dance with it, and he does.  I don't get why it's such a shock to so many that he doesn't prefer to play the guitar these days.  Piano and harp are more his thing. 

"Shell", criminey he's more active now than ever.  Writing books, doing Theme Time, and touring at age 67 (on the 24th he turns 67), he's kicking my ass.  He's no shell.

xxoo,
Martha

While I myself am no longer attending Dylan shows for reasons of diminishing returns (my last one was in '04) I can verify this statement based solely on the bootleg evidence.  I started going to Dylan shows in '89, and from the time G.E. Smith left the band until right around TOOM things could get pretty grim up on that stage.  Did see some good ones, too, but I think I saw more bad ones.

1989 through 1994 seems to have been the nadir---I saw him 3 of the worst 10 concerts I've ever seen.  But he and his band had recovered by 1995.  He was smokin' on the summer tour that year (blew the Dead off the stage)!

'89 was still pretty decent and the Hammersmith and Paris residencies in early 1990 were superb. It went downhill after that, especially from early 1991 when the original NET band with GE Smith broke up and Bob's performances descended into drunken ineptitude. The summer '91 European shows are unquestionably the worst performances of his entire career...things picked up a bit after that though and for me the Great Music Experience Tv broadcast he did from Japan in May 1994 was when things really kickstarted again. The 1995 shows (when he actually chose to sing without playing an instrument for much of the show) were absolutely brilliant - it was like watching a rebirth on that spring tour of Europe that year compared to what I'd last seen from him two years earlier.

You bloody Brits always got it better in the mid 90s.   It always seemed like he was so much more creative and challenging in Europe than in the US, at least in the Missouri area where I'd always see shows.  I'd watch dull shows at the Fox or somewhere and then get boots like The Pedlar Now Speaks and feel really ripped off.

I saw Mr. Dylan in 1991 in New Orleans.  It was the worst show I have ever seen.  And this comes from a card carrying Dylan fan.  I took some friends who were on the fence, and this show promptly sent them the other way.  The more recent shows have been okay, but I have to agree with Gazza concerning the 1991 shows.  Everyone likes to make fun of his "Elvis" period with the Budakon tour in 78, but that show was one of the BEST shows I've ever seen anyone do.

Best Dylan Show I saw was with Tom Petty backing him up.
I loved some of the Dylan shows from the 90's.
One outdoor concert in the rain- Bob came out in a hooded sweatshirt- never took the hood off- never addressed the crowd-blew through a hour and half set and was gone.

Saw him a few years ago at the Beacon in NYC. I didn't know he stopped playing guitar and I couldn't understand a word he sang. Worst Dylan show ever.
