Good boy Bobby for including Canberra.
Will not be missing this one for love or money.

I'm going front row and I don't care if all he does is read/sing from the telephone directory.
Theatre venues are the best for seeing him.
I remember seeing him play the Royal in 92 and he was brilliant.

A serious question. Do you think bluesfest would take another punt on him? All I heard about his performance was negative. Would people give him another go?

So put my head in the sand and say what I heard and just barely saw wasn't embarrassing??

Each to their own, but I'd honestly say that if you thought it was embarrassing then you probably don't get it...


On the Monday night Bluesfest performance the crowd where I was (about halfway between the sound desk and stage) was absolutely loving it. I've never felt that kind of energy in the crowd at a Dylan show before. I think they'd gladly have him back again, but they'd probably want to sort out the video screen situation first.

He doesn't tailor his shows for big venues or festivals, so seeing him in a theatre setting like this is really the best way to go. Looking forward to this tour...

I loved him at Bluesfest a few years back I can understand he isn't for everyone but I don't think many Die hard Dylan fans were disappointed.
I'll be trying to get tickets

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

B. Dylan

At 73,Dylan still pens sublime lyrics,tours constantly and refuses to be confined.He also has a band that is not too shabby.Why people think that the bloke is a train wreck waiting to happen is beyond me.
He poops on most of the acts today.However,I do not think he is suited to festivals.I have seen him a million times and yes, somes shows were average but the brilliant ones are regular.
I will be there with bells on.

My only regret with his previous BF appearance was not being aware beforehand that the video screens wouldn't be on and that sitting where I had for other performers - near the back and behind the sound guys - I wasn't going to see much. If I had known that I would have made the effort to get closer even if it meant I had to stand (not something my body is in favour of). He always has a cracking band and while his songs can vary wildly from the originals, that is some of the appeal.

I will be trying to acquire tickets to see him.
regards

I have been a fan of Bobs since i was a kid, and first saw him in 78 at the myer music bowl, which was very good. I have seen him many times since, mainly through work ' and the shows can vary greatly, I enjoyed seeing Patti smith open for him at the Tennis centre a couple of nights, in 98 and Bob was OK those nights as well. He played some of his old standards on accoustic I think, and other versions were recognisable, and he did some stuff from time out a mind.

At the Mebourne Music Festival in 2003 was the first time I remember him being a dickehead with regard to the big screen, and he anoyed many, and at that same Gig an ailing Ray Charles, showed Bob how a true performer interacts and works with with their audience.

In 2011 I was at virtualy every show, and was being paid to be there, and still did not enjoy it. His voice is shot and his attitude can change from night to night, the band is always fantastsic though. It was emberassing at the West Coast Blues festival in a big Park at Freo, when I decided to go and stand up the back for a while, and lots of people were saying "which ones Bob", as the screens were down. The Adelaide Entertainment Centre show was a bit better because almost veryone could see him, but lots of people seemed to enjoy B B King, who was the support act more. Once again B B was ailing, but he interacted with and showed respect to the audience. Bob is is his own strange unit, and he never seems to do that. And does not think he has to, but lots of people want that. And I dont think that it is too much to ask.
And god knows why he stays on the road so much? Considering that he only goes in to the venue to go on stage and comes straight out again to his hired vintage Winebago, in the car park or wherever it may be. Anyway the usual great band, and crew are lucky, and they get a tonne of work out of the seemingly never ending tour.

Smaller venues should be more suitable this time around, due to Bobs voice and other constraints. And you never know, you may get a good night. And I hope people do.

Have seen His Bob-ness at Hammersmith Odeon, State Theatre, Entertainment Centre and BluesFest but the best concert ever was Ballina Rugby League fields in 2001. He actually looked like he was enjoying himself

Judging by the reviews so far ,it should be brilliant.
I will be seeing him twice - I wish I could go to more.
