WHAT A MOUTH FULL OF MARBLES

I would have walked out but paid so much for excellent seats. We thought the sound would get better. You couldn’t understand ANYTHING he sang. Epic FAIL

TERRIBLE

1st time seeing the iconic Bib Dylan. Didn’t recognize any of his hits. Didn’t understand any of the lyrics sung. He never said a word to the audience who paid too much money for his concert weeks before Christmas . Hey Bob....stop touring. And by the way....you’re welcome for the donation to your already large bank account.

DYLAN’S AT THE BEACON

Have seen many great concerts at the Beacon. When the place gets rocking the energy fills the concert hall. Sorry to say it did not happen on Thursday Nov 27th show at the Beacon. Agree with much of what others had said. While it was wonderful to see the legend, it was a low energy show and many of those sitting in expensive seats around me left early.

WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY

What a disaster it was last night at The Beacon. Please save your money. Terrible show. His voice was off and the band was way not as good as I remember. I barely knew 3 songs, my girlfriend one song. You suck Bob !

I'D GIVE THIS ZERO STARS IF I COULD. PATHETIC. SOULLESS.

Completely devoid of any energy or effort on Dylan's part. Every single song was arranged the same, had the same tempo and the same (non) melody. It was incredibly boring. Dylan clearly put little to no effort into the show or the rearrangements of his greatest hits. He said not one word--no welcome, no thanks, did not introduce his (very good) band. I guess he's laughing all the way to the bank.

APPARENTLY THE MELODY DOESN'T MATTER.

Imagine Paul McCartney singing Helter Skelter as a country Ballad. How about The Rolling Stones singing Jumping Jack Flash as a '60s surfer number. How qbouaFrank Sanatra singing Shena is a Punk Rocker. Now imagine those shows being done without even acknowledging that an audience was there except to insult and intimidate you about not taking pictures. If you would like these shows, then you will like the current Bob Dylan show. The melody is so unimportant that there's no need to introduce the band.

BOB DYLAN IN COLUMBUS

Very disappointed. Bob's back up band was great but overpowered the vocals. Favorite songs were rearranged so as to be almost unrecognizable and the "crooner" songs were bad. He lost most of the audience after about 4 songs...many left to avoid the end of concert rush. However, Mavis Staples was great! She waked up the crowd so that Bob could put them back to sleep.
