I will call put a terrible live show any time. His legacy is amazing. His performances are cringe worthy at the least.

Loved every show I've seen of his and cannot wait for this tour. None of us are worthy, some less so than others. Not naming names.

Bob Dylan live is not everyone's cup of tea. You get it or you don't. It takes different strokes to move the world. mmmm

I love his last few albums and I thought he was great on the last couple of tours, but I had no expectations that he would sound like 60s Dylan.
Unfortunately I already have a ticket to see The Charlatans on the same night as the Brisbane show.
So now contemplating a trip down to Newcastle for Bob.

After reading this review it appears that the audience remains split between those who expect to hear it straight off the vinyl,and those who are not concerned,so long as it is Bob. on stage.
In terms of visuals,I assume you will need a Hot Seat.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

Don’t know, but it appears that the Adelaide gig will likely have 2 support acts.

Running Times:
Doors- 3:30pm
Start - 5:30pm
Main Act - 8:00pm
Finish - 10:30pm

I've been lucky enough to see Dylan many times. In them there have been great shows and poor ones. The late 80s weren't great.
When he reverted to a 4 piece band in the 90s he was revitalised onstage - and playing theatres rather than arenas also helped the audience experience.
I saw him at Brisbane Convention Centre last time around and imo he was excellent. His voice suited the newer songs and there have been great songs in the last 20 years. Then at the Tivoli in a smaller intimate environment he was wonderful. Trouble is people expect young Dylan. Personally I'm over hearing "blowin in the wind' so am quite open to Bob changing the arrangements of his oldest songs. Sure I'd love to hear 'Tangled up..' and 'hurricane' as recorded but his voice can't do them like that.
I've heard people complain he only played 2 songs from the sixties - well why not? What about the 70s 80s 90s etc. He has 55 years worth and given his more recent songs are written considering his voice as it is now why shouldn't he focus on the latter part of his career?
If you expect the Dylan that was you'll be disappointed. If you've kept up with his music and are aware that he plays around with his older songs you might be surprised. He won't dance and chat. Sadly he cannot play guitar now due to arthritis. Unless you're close to the stage in those hangers it can be a little disengaging. But do you want an opportunity to see and hear a living legend?

I got front row centre last tour for $200, but ticketek offer seats in a very random manner.
They offered me crap seats which I discarded for about 20 mins before offering me front row at the same price range.
You think they'd offer the best seats available to the first in line... but no
