Saw him 2 nights ago and really enjoyed it. Again. I've seen him around 25 times, a couple of friends I was with have probably seen him around 40 times, one friend was a newbie ... we all really enjoyed the show. Bob was surprisingly engaged with the crowd (I think I saw more smiles out of him than I've seen in a show before) Charlie Sexton is back in the band and Bob even got up and played the guitar and harmonica (recent shows I've seen he's been pretty much staying on keyboards). He will start on time so if there is no opening act and you want to catch the whole show be in your seats at scheduled start time. Bob's like a box of chocolates ... you never know what you're going to get (but I can't recall ever walking away sorely disappointed)!!!

There is no more an enigmatic figure in music than Bob Dylan. There probably never will be.

If you've never seen Dylan, but constantly listen to Blonde on Blonde -you're liable to be slightly disappointed if this is your first show. Like so many other singers (wink-wink), Bob's voice has certainly changed over the years.

What separates Bob Dylan (to me) is that he's pretty much "engineered" his most recent music and recordings to fit his current voice, which no longer resembles the impressions done by so many comedians.

I actually consider Bob Dylan's career as several careers rolled into one. Over the years he's moved from acoustic folk to electric rock. He's experimented in forms ranging from rap to cajun to country and western.

For me, each of these configurations actually works. I am a fan of every album and every phase of his career(s).

Like another poster, I have seen Bob Dylan on numerous occasions. Along with the Allman Brother's Band and Yes - I've seen Dylan more times than I can actually recollect.

His voice is what it is. He can make it work. Not only that, he travels with one of the finest bands on the road.

While I make no guarantee that YOU will like the show - I can't wait until the next time he plays within 400 miles of my neck of the woods!

I love Bob's "ravaged voice". He sounds like Howlin Wolf or Charley Patton and looks like Vincent Price and Hank Williams' bastard love-child!

Looking forward to the Knopfler dates this fall...

Well Rusty .. I do like the way you think , write and then put it all in words like the ones above

Do I agree.... yep...

I went to see Dylan last summer at Jones Beach..actually it may have been this week end a year ago Leon Russel opened... the set list looks similar..opened with Leopard Pill...
Bob has evolved into many vocal changes through the years and your comment about Blonde on Blonde is so true..Heck I am still expecting to hear that sound...it will not happen.. ya gotta ~ roll with~... life is full of changes... all day , all night long.. the trick is not resisting and rolling with it.. even Bob's voice...

If you have a chance to see and hear Bob Dylan do not hesitate... do it.

I wished I would've gone to see him in the early 60's at any of the coffeehouses in NY.. a moment in time... missed.

Bob is playing here in Indy tomorrow.
This article is from todays Indy Star



http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012208230305

Bob Dylan a solid bet to leave them guessing at the Lawn

In a memorable episode of performer-audience interaction, people shouted their displeasure toward Neil Young during a Crosby Stills Nash & Young performance at Klipsch Music Center in 2006.

CSNY played left-leaning protest tunes from Young's "Living with War" album released the same year, which generated more than a smattering of boos and inspired a few attendees to yell toward the stage as they exited the pavilion.

It was natural to wonder if people who paid as much as $151 per ticket had paid attention to Young's habit of sharing his political views across a four-decade career.

What did they expect?

Which brings us to Bob Dylan, who will perform Aug. 25 at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park.

It's been 46 years since a fan in Manchester, England, infamously heckled Dylan after the singer-songwriter transitioned from unplugged folk to electric rock music.

These days, it's more common for Dylan fans to mumble about being disappointed in one aspect of the concert or another while walking back to their cars.

Maybe they were looking for pristine, solo rendition of "The Times They Are a-Changin' "or a blazing, full-band version of "Baby, Let Me Follow You Down." Or perhaps they just wanted the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer to clearly enunciate his lyrics.

It's impossible to predict what Dylan will do onstage in Indianapolis, but it's a virtual lock that he won't do any of those things.

In recent years, Dylan and the members of his band have presented themselves onstage as riverboat gamblers specializing in good-natured variations of shuffling blues music. Dylan plays far more piano and keyboard than guitar, yet guitar solos from sidemen Charlie Sexton and Stu Kimball represent a major part of the show.

Indianapolis-based musician Frank Dean, who's made albums in styles ranging from country to roots rock to blues, said he became a songwriter because of Dylan's towering body of work.

But if someone were to ask Dean if it's worth the price of admission today to check out a Dylan show, don't expect a quick reply of "yes."

"My first question would be, 'Do you enjoy playing the lottery?' Two out of three times it's going to be awful," Dean said.

Dylan tarnishes his legacy, Dean said, by singing poorly and by withholding hits during his shows.

When the 71-year-old Minnesota native does sing his most popular material, he might nail it or he could sound exceedingly disinterested.

Indianapolis-based musician Dave Bagdade, a member of the Cousin Brothers as well as Diamond Hill Station, embraces the flip side of Dean's argument.

"(Dylan's) shows are still interesting and exciting and unpredictable," he said.

And expecting Dylan to portray a jukebox of hits (as they appeared on record) isn't realistic, Bagdade said.

"He's never really been an artist who seems outwardly concerned about what the fans think of him," Bagdade said. "He knows who he's going to reach, and he reaches them on his terms."

Dean and Bagdade find common ground when highlighting a trilogy of albums -- 1979's "Slow Train Coming"; 1980's "Saved"; and 1981's "Shot of Love" -- as examples of Dylan recording in his best voice.

"The question is, 'What is Bob Dylan's voice?' " Dean said. "When you listen to 'Nashville Skyline' and 'John Wesley Harding,' he sounds great. He sounds really great on 'Slow Train Coming.' "

Bagdade, an avid collector of live recordings, acknowledged that Dylan's voice has deteriorated to a coarse, monotone instrument.

"Now he has to work harder to make use of what he has," said Bagdade, who caught Dylan on tour with Paul Simon in 1999. "He has a tremendous ability to do that."

Dean attended Dylan's 2007 performance at the Lawn, which was filled with signature tunes such as "It Ain't Me, Babe," "I Shall Be Released" and "Tangled Up in Blue." Dean also attended four dates of the mid-1970s Rolling Thunder Revue, a historic tour that tempers his enthusiasm for today's Dylan.

"When we say, 'That was a pretty good show,' we're grading on a curve," Dean said.

Bagdade, meanwhile, said music fans should take advantage of seeing a living legend when the opportunity arises.

"I would tell people, 'Go and don't have any expectations. Just know that whatever you get is probably going to be pretty great,' " Bagdade said

Well Bob's latest musical styling finds him hammering away at the keys of his Baby Grand piano, creating a sound more jazzy, jumpy and swinggy. Personally, I really like Bob's vocals, and he took control of the stage, strutting around a bit, prowling the stage and playing it up to the audience. The new piano based arrangements are really cool.
A couple side notes, this show was 18 yrs to the night I first saw Dylan back in 94, and prior to the show something pretty unusual happened when for about 40 min. from 5 to 5:40, Bob and his Band, in plain sight and earshot of about 30 or so of Us at the gate, worked out on I think 4 different very bluesy instrumental tunes I assume it had something to do with his upcoming albums release, Bob was doing alot of hand waiving and giving plenty of instruction. Really a fun time and great show............Peace...........joe

This really surprises me. Is Bob using a different lead guitar player for different segments of the tour? I have tickets for 10/19 in Berkeley and it was billed as "Bob Dylan performing with Mark Knopfler" which of course would indicate that Knopfler is playing in Dylan's band. If not, that is a very misleading bill. Not that anyone would get short changed seeing Bob with Charlie Sexton! I saw Bob with Charlie three years ago and they completely blew me away.

Mark is the opener, in the past he has sat in for a song or two.

Thanks for the clarification. I thought I was going to get Knopfler in Dylan's band, but as I already said, you can't lose with Charlie Sexton! And I certainly will get there on time to see Knopfler, I've never seen him or Dire Straits.

Here is the review from 8-25-12 Indy

http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012208260326
Bob Dylan goes his own way in Indianapolis concert, and audience enjoys the trip


By all indications, Bob Dylan enjoyed himself during Saturday’s concert at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park.

The greatest lyricist of the rock ’n’ roll era wore an enduring smile while singing “Things Have Changed,” a tune that boasts wry lines: “I’m in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood,” and “Lot of water under the bridge, lot of other stuff, too.”

Dylan won an Academy Award for “Things Have Changed” (part of the soundtrack for the 2000 film “Wonder Boys”), and his Oscar trophy was on display near the electric keyboard and baby grand piano where he spent most of the 110-minute show.

The piano is a relatively new addition to Dylan’s “never-ending tour.” It wasn’t part of his Halloween 2010 appearance at the Murat Theatre in Old National Centre, and the instrument wasn’t always an asset at the Lawn.

Dylan’s syncopated, off-key playing made “Visions of Johanna” a mangled mess, and the piano frequently crowded the steel guitar of Donnie Herron out of the picture.

The piano fared best when Dylan reined it in as a percussive tool to spark cues for guitarists Charlie Sexton and Stu Kimball and bass player Tony Garnier. The band locked into a steamroller groove during “Highway 61 Revisited,” and Dylan knows a winner when he hears one.

After standing up from the piano at the end of “Highway 61,” he pretended to brush dirt off his shoulders — a universal gesture of accomplishment.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer continues to attract a loyal following at age 71.
North Carolina resident Tara Price staked her place in line for nonreserved seating at 3 p.m., five hours before show time. Price, 34, and her husband, Douglas, are devoting part of their vacation to attending Dylan shows in the Midwest.

Tara said the Rochester, Minn., performance on Aug. 21 was strong enough (“He was a nut. It was like he was 30 all over again.”) that the couple added Indianapolis to an itinerary that also has included Fargo, N.D.

“Bob’s a classic,” she said. “We love him.”

Allen Tiller, an Indianapolis native who now lives near Louisville, Ky., said he’s attended a dozen Dylan shows. because of the singer-songwriter’s “mystique.”

Allen Tiller, an Indianapolis native who now lives near Louisville, Ky., said he’s attended a dozen Dylan shows. because of the singer-songwriter’s “mystique.”

“It’s the opportunity to see a legend, and you don’t pass it up,” said Tiller, 42. “Until we can find a replacement, I’ll continue going.”

Tiller correctly predicted that “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat” would be Dylan’s opening number at the Lawn.

“The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll” popped up as somewhat of a rarity on the show’s program. Dylan’s emotionally charged rendition of “Hattie Carroll,” a 1964 composition based on the true story of a woman “killed for no reason,” made it seem as if he follows reports on 3-year-old Carmen Ellis and other unprotected children in Indiana.
