  • Sacramento, CA - October 18, 2006

    Sacramento is my Hibbing , where I grew up, so it is always nice to have Bob play here and I can recruit my friends. This time however, was especially memorable. My younger brother, who turned me on to Bob, and I and two friends are regulars when in Sacramento, but this time I brought two others who have never seen Bob: my best friend and my 77yr old Mother. I was reluctant to bring her as I thought I might have to escort her to a 30 minute bathroom break during "Hard Rain" or something, but fortunately, she stayed in her seat the whole time.
  • Denver, CO - October 24, 2006

    We were at the top of our game. Well rested from an extra day off filled with naps and leisurely strolls. Just like Bob (apparently) we were also well fed thanks to The Irish Snug, The Rock Bottom Brewery and The Rio Grande On Blake (with the 3 margarita limit). I had the easiest time getting into the venue through the confusion of the 8 lines of people all stomping and snorting like ponies in the gates. For some reason unknown, my attendant must have liked me and sent me in a good 30 seconds or so before everyone else and before the pre-entry folks were even though the door.
  • Chicago, IL - October 27, 2006

    Although I've seen Dylan many times over the last five years, I was
    looking forward to last night's show with greater anticpation than
    usual because of course it would be the first time since the release
    of Love and Theft that I knew I was going to hear new songs live.
    Dylan did not disappoint, delivering a fantastic performance that
    leaned heavily towards newer material - 8 out of the 16 songs played
    were off of his last three albums. I'd like to see The Rolling Stones
    try that.

    It would have been hard for my day up until the show to get much worse. I hopped a bus from Dartmouth to the Manchester airport at 12:30pm, getting ready for a 5:22 flight. The plan was already tight: I was going to get into the O'Hare at 6:50, Steve (Disco Stu) was going to pick me up and we'd head to the show, hopefully in time for the start of the Kings of Leon set, but perhaps not. However, anyone who's ever relied on an airline to make a tight connection knows very well how that tends to go. Yup, the plane was delayed. An hour and a half.

    Getting to the show today was certainly less hectic. Had a mini get-together with Steve and Dan (standin' on the gallows), with whom I had road tripped to Comstock Park and Columbus, at at Jimmy John's near the venue. The place was recommended as a great place to eat before a Sears Centre show by the Chicago Tribune, so I organized it there. Little did I know it was just a sub chain. Why they recommended it was beyond me, but we had a nice dinner and Bob-filled conversation nevertheless.
  • St. Paul, MN - October 29, 2006

    From our view in the 23rd row, the show really took off after the first five
    songs. At first, we had settled for our seats in the middle of the floor,
    but as showtime neared, we opted to check out the view from the side of the
    stage, up in the stadium seating. We stayed there at first, but once Maggies
    started, it was evident the sound over there was awful. Anyone who only saw
    and heard the show from up there didn't get the full experience, or even
    half the experience. During the instrumental break at the end of Maggies, we bolted back to our
  • Portland, ME - November 9, 2006

    The evening began stressfully-even though Rose and I bought our tickets through bobdylan.com's presale program, the Civic Center had no intention of allowing early entry. Yikes. I had to work today.I didn't have time to get a good place in line.will we be stuck in the back, far from the stage, in the middle of the maddening crowd? The gods are on our side, our line moves the quickest and we find ourselves at the front, dead center of the stage, one or two people back. Whew.
  • Las Vegas, NV - July 16, 2011

    OMG!! (as they say). I am still levitating from this show. I thought Bob and his Band were on fire the previous night at the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa. Tonight they were as scorching hot as the pavement in Vegas. I think this was one of my favorite, maybe even my favorite, show from the last 3 or 4 years. The Pearl Concert Theater is small with 2500 seats arranged in a U-shape

  • Costa Mesa, CA - July 15, 2011

    Get ready everyone!! On a beautiful summer night in a packed sold out amphitheatre, Bob gave us a show. He came out smiling and immediately started dancing and doing Charlie Sexton crouches behind his keyboard as he opened with "Gonna Change My Way of Thinking". The set list was similar to the previous opening night in Santa Barbara. People of all ages, many brought their young children, young girls laughing and calling out to Bob to "marry me". The mood was set and we were happy as well as Bob.
  • Cork, Ireland - June16, 2011

    I was willing to forsake the customary Bloomsday bottle of cheap red and gorgonzola sandwich to make the trip down to a very special engagement in Cork, and with a long lunar eclipse the night before, where else are you going to go…
