Seen bob dylan at rothbury…parents always said bobs way better studio than live…and i agree. Legendary, yes….but live bob is a little rough. My opinion only. Would suggest at least see him live once though!

Dylan is a crapshoot live actually I have seen him be amazing such as on the tours with tom petty and the dead and van morrison I have also seen a few nasally lethargic not so amazing shows…capable of being an amazing guitar player at times, on recent tours he has only been playing guitar on a song or two…guess age is catching up. Even so the music stands up and great idea to catch him while you can!

I agree.. its a total crap shoot and totally worth the gamble to see him… even if your not a gambler at heart. That Rothbury set was good but for the closing headliner I felt cheated… especially when he just walked off the stage to end the show with out a “thanks”, “goodnight” or anything- forget about an encore.

I haven’t seen a bad Dylan shows after 5 shows in the 90’s and 2000’s. I always thought it’s his band you go to see backing him, as he had the Band, Tom Petty and the Dead at one time It’s good to have him on the road playing, it’s worth the crap shoot if you like the vibe.
