Good lookin tour dates right there!

Better over there then over here. Dylan is terrible live. I feel sorry for anyone over in Europe who attends these shows. His singing is an act of terrorism on the ears of the listener. Anyone who thinks Dylan still has the goods to perform live is delusional and has put Dylan on such a pedestal that they can’t here correctly.

OK so what’s with the 2 and 3 night shows…and why didn’t we here in the states get so lucky ?

babyjojo August 27, 2013, 16:09:25

I seen Bob Dylan 3 times this year he still has that magic its an honor each and every time to see the master at work. He’s the greatest songwriter of our time & one of the greatest poets. He has achieved so much in his lifetime.,Everyone ages we all will if we are blessed to do so. To all the haters out there it only shows how little you know!!! keep rolling Bob! much love

Beezer August 27, 2013, 16:18:57

Hey babyjojo, you can still think Dylan is the greatest songwriter ever. But to say he is worth seeing live, you have lost your grip on reality. Dylan only tours to make money. He doesn’t care about his audience.

carol perez August 27, 2013, 16:49:20

hey babyjojo…I was with you so I know how fabulous the great B. Dylan is. His love of music and love of performance …Seeing him live is what it’s all about !!
Can’t wait till he starts touring again next spring !
We will be there !

@Beezer: Dylan has been dealing with haters like you his entire career in one way or another. It’s a very popular and tired complaint that his voice is shit. I’ve seen him 12 times going back to the early nineties. Yes, everybody knows his voice is terrible. If you are going to a show to hear a beautiful voice, then go see Celine Dion in Vegas. Dylan’s music is timeless, and his band is fresh and new with their delivery every time. It’s definitely more for the diehards than anyone else. People like Beezer always cry and complain because he’s not playing like he did in 1965. But you know what Beezer? He’s Bob Dylan and you’re not. He has his reasons for playing ‘til he drops, and God bless him for that.

Yes Timmy !!!!
well said !
I’ve loved this man through every period and every voice.
Dylan moves on…he’s new, fresh and different every time

This tour was announced weeks ago.

Glad this is here but this was announced around a month ago.
Anyone who thinks Dylan, or any artist for that matter, has to have the same silky smooth voice they had when they were in their 20s maybe should just stick to listening to the radio, and surely, hate to say it, but does not get Dylan at all. A poet and ridiculously fine songwriter such as him does not live in the past in any way and does not remain relevant by sounding as he did decades ago. What’s more, the emotional angst, grit and finally his gestalt, especially at his age, I think would only be undercut by a ‘nice’ voice. I personally think Dylan is more in command of his songs and his voice than ever these last few years, at least since the early/mid 60s. Plus, anyone who appreciates the best music that’s come out of the USA appreciates the blues, and Dylan, especially with this voice now, is more of a bluesman than ever, infectling his words and music with more balls and profundity than I’ve ever heard. Lastly, his band is killer, all the best bands he’s ever had have been in the last 20 years, and his tunes get more and more refined in their arrangements every year it seems to me. That’s what I believe.

I love you Luke !
You truly understand and said it so well !
I saw Dylan in 1961 and see him now at least 3 times a year.
I love so much that he isn’t stuck in the past and his blues are indescribable. He has always been a part of my life…now more than ever.
