ICON DYLAN

Sounded best in the three times i’ve Seen him since late 60’s. If you expected the Dylan of old and no change, get with it people. Band was great. Dylan on piano and harmonica great. Gonna take this to my grave. Thank you Bob Dylan!

4.0 star rating Dave from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

GOOD SHOW!

Bob is still an excellent performer. If you was expecting the harmonica, guitar playing version you were disappointed. His voice is excellent these days and he still has his quirks that lets you know he is still Bob Dylan.

IT'S DYLAN!

Better than we were expecting. His voice was pretty good, after warming up after a few songs. If you took this at concert value, taking away how this man has inspired the US music scene over decades, it was OK. Definitely not the best concert I've ever been to this year, but somehow, that isn't the reason for attending a Dylan concert. It's more about appreciating his legend. I won't ever go to another of his concerts, this was enough. Parts of the concert were weirdly like Bob Dylan doing karaoke trying to impersonate Bob Dylan. It was entertaining in a weird way. Bob really shone through in his up-beat rock and roll style songs, those were the peak and when his voice sounded most powerful. If you've always wanted to see Dylan, go see him on this tour. If you haven't, absolutely don't go.

BOB DYLAN AT DC ANTHEM

Dylan had a very tight band on 12/2 in DC, which played multiple riffs on each song, staying away from simply strumming chords. All beats were new and some were very infectious. If you came just to see a greatest hits show, you were sorely disappointed. Dylan's rewrite of any song's original beat is what I came for; I didn't come to hear a track like it was recorded on an album. His band seemed right out of Nashville, and Dylan played 2-3 songs from his Nashville Skyline album. Dylan looked fragile and frequently used (what I assume was) a bolted down mic stand for support when out front. Most of the night he hid behind a stand-up piano, which I would have rather have seen placed at a 90 degree angle to the stage. I didn't know most of his new song, but some of them had amazing boogie-woogie beats. Dylan is at his best when selecting a tour band and this one was fantastic. The sound was very balanced and clear. Just a great night.

THE NEVER ENDING ARTIST

My 6th Dylan show. I didn't give the show 5 stars only because I found it supremely disappointing that the city of Tulsa, which is houses the Dylan archives, did not fill the Tulsa Theater - maybe 80% sold. The first song served as the band's sound check, with Dylan's mic being way too low. The band seemed to hit its groove on the Rough and Rowdy Ways tracks, but for me the highlight was the complete reimagining of "Gotta Serve Somebody". Dylan takes great effort to keep reimagining his songs. To me, that's the great part of a Dylan show. I understand some folks want to hear a greatest hits concert with all the old familiar melodies. For myself, I love how creative the songs are arranged. The whole evening had a fantastic bluesy roadhouse vibe with a hint of spiritualism. Lots of older musicians just tour their old hits. Dylan turns 81 next month. It's beyond amazing that he's able to tour a completely new album and allow that new music to support 9 out of a 17 song setlist.

BOB DYLAN

Oakdale should do a better job of monitoring alcohol consumption and seating latecomers, so as not to interrupt the enjoyment of those who arrived on time and were respectful of the performance. Good to see and listen to Nobel-Prize winner Bob Dylan, but it would have been nice if he had a few lines of interaction with the audience. Maybe he didn't like the crowed, either.
