SLC 10/17/17

I've been listening to Bob since 1964. Brought my Bob records to college in 1966 and was almost booed out of the dorm by upper classmen who were into Smokey Robinson. My wife and I had a great time last night at the concert in SLC. Mavis was great as usual. The first thing that strikes you about Bob and the band is how tight they are. They play with an amazing precision. Others have commented on Bob changing the arrangements of his classic songs like Tangled Up in Blue and Desolation Row to the dismay of some. I knew this was coming following him for so many years. But what surprised me is that he mostly played the last song of the night pretty straight up - Ballad of a Thin Man. The melody was recognizable. He has ended his concerts with this song for years. I had to smile knowing he loves to wink at his audience with a mischievous twinkle in his eye "You don't know what's happening. Do you Mr. Jones?" Written with affection - Mr Jones

I saw Bob last time he was in Tucson in 2006. Pretty disappointing show saved by Merle Haggard. So wasn’t expecting too much but wanted to see him anyway for old times sake. Well, I shouldn’t have worried. Bob was in fine voice and form, the band was tight, the staging was perfect, the Music Hall was a great venue to choose, and the playlist should have satisfied everyone. My wife and I gambled on front row seats and we rolled 7’s on that decision. About 5 minutes to 8 the band assembled on stage, with Bob behind a full size grand piano. Staging was excellent. Ringed by large old style Klieg lights, Bob’s hair, back lit like the many images of him in the 60’s, was a joy to see. Sans any facial hair he looked damn good for his age and sounded even better. I looked over to stage right, and there, almost out of view was Bob’s Oscar for The Wonderboys on a small black table. Next to it was a white plaster head of a woman. Don’t know the significance of that but if you do let me know!

I love the show. I have seen Bob many times over the years, and this show was up there with any of them. Bob was energetic, fun, and sounded great. I was entertained from start to finish. It did my heart good to see someone that I care so much for sounding and looking so well.

It was all about the music. None of those irritating strobe lights, costume changes, philosophizing nonsense. I loved the way he arranged and sang his older well known songs. It truly was a unique experience to listen to a true musician play and sing his songs. He also sang some jazz songs that were so beautiful and moving. I loved this concert! I loved that I got to see Bob Dylan live doing what he does best, be himself, have fun and live in the moment. His band is excellent. I had so much fun just listening to the music!! Great concert!! I would recommend to everyone to see him perform live!!

completely blew me away,,a beautiful voice believe it or not was the biggest surpise articulating every word and note w a beautiful deep rich vibrato adding depth to the gravely chortle of recent past ...he alternates rocking swingin tunes w the big band kicking ass behind him ,,,driving intensity fresh as ever,,then ballads followed after every rocker,,he was mid stage,,,holding the mic like early elvis,,,and those quirky strange intriguing stances movements Marva staples told us to look out for,,,watch bob !!! she said during her rousing first set.. the show was amazing,..dylan becomng Elvis Sinatra tony Bennett Fred Astaire,,,bing Crosby,...yet ever uniquely himself,,always new and lately greatly improved,on what always worth going to.. the voice and new showmanship made the evening really special,,,i never thought i would ever enjoy Dylan crooning like he does now,,better than on any album,,this is a cat who is at the top of his game and relishing it as much as we do..glad i went

Bob Dylan proved his musical and poetic genius during his concert last night in Upper Darby, PA. Unbelievable passion was palpable as he rocked the house with innovative music. For those wanting a throwback concert, well, they don't know Dylan. He was among the first of artists who continually reinvent themselves--only his innovation is in the music not his persona. He wove an experience for those who really listened, weaving his new songs and American standards together for an amazing sound and experience. Love this man and his unconventional ways--and the fact he is true to himself and a true inspiration. We listened to what will undoubtedly be new classics--Dylanesque Brilliance. And the evening started out oh so right with Dylan's long-time friend and musical powerhouse herself, Mavis Staples, taking center stage. What a memorable night!
