BEST. CONCERT. EVER.

It was all about the music. None of those irritating strobe lights, costume changes, philosophizing nonsense. I loved the way he arranged and sang his older well known songs. It truly was a unique experience to listen to a true musician play and sing his songs. He also sang some jazz songs that were so beautiful and moving. I loved this concert! I loved that I got to see Bob Dylan live doing what he does best, be himself, have fun and live in the moment. His band is excellent. I had so much fun just listening to the music!! Great concert!! I would recommend to everyone to see him perform live!!

INSPIRATION AND INNOVATION--DYLAN ROCKS!

Bob Dylan proved his musical and poetic genius during his concert last night in Upper Darby, PA. Unbelievable passion was palpable as he rocked the house with innovative music. For those wanting a throwback concert, well, they don't know Dylan. He was among the first of artists who continually reinvent themselves--only his innovation is in the music not his persona. He wove an experience for those who really listened, weaving his new songs and American standards together for an amazing sound and experience. Love this man and his unconventional ways--and the fact he is true to himself and a true inspiration. We listened to what will undoubtedly be new classics--Dylanesque Brilliance. And the evening started out oh so right with Dylan's long-time friend and musical powerhouse herself, Mavis Staples, taking center stage. What a memorable night!

LIKE A ROLLING STONE

Last night was full of reverence for his poetry's universal appeal, hence Dylan's Nobel Prize for Literature. I've had the privilege of seeing Bob play venues from Little Rock (with Willie Nelson to his paying tribute to Les Paul at Fat Tuesdays in NYC in the '90s. The show last night was one of his very best ever. I won't repeat all the other 5-star reviews' accolades (the band's impeccable tight sound, etc.). I only add this. I never thought I would hear Bob sing a couple of Tony Bennett's set list classics: "Autumn Leaves" and "Once Upon A Time." Not only was his delivery rich and majestically reverent, his words were clear, his tone poignant and nostalgic, his voice deeply resonant--an epic spiritual journey throughout. Thank God for Bob Dylan. Amen.

SLC 10/17/17

I've been listening to Bob since 1964. Brought my Bob records to college in 1966 and was almost booed out of the dorm by upper classmen who were into Smokey Robinson. My wife and I had a great time last night at the concert in SLC. Mavis was great as usual. The first thing that strikes you about Bob and the band is how tight they are. They play with an amazing precision. Others have commented on Bob changing the arrangements of his classic songs like Tangled Up in Blue and Desolation Row to the dismay of some. I knew this was coming following him for so many years. But what surprised me is that he mostly played the last song of the night pretty straight up - Ballad of a Thin Man. The melody was recognizable. He has ended his concerts with this song for years. I had to smile knowing he loves to wink at his audience with a mischievous twinkle in his eye "You don't know what's happening. Do you Mr. Jones?" Written with affection - Mr Jones

SANTA BARBARA BOWL 2019

My husband and I went to the Santa Barbara Bowl to see Bob Dylan, I wasn't sure what to expect from reading some earlier reviews from past concerts and his age but I was truly amazed, I loved every minute of this concert, he came on and didn't speak to the audience, he just starting playing and did not stop once, song after song....played his piano and harmonica...he and his band were wonderful, I wanted it to just go on an on..I loved it so much!!

AMAZING!

I saw Bob Dylan in Denver at the Mission Ballroom. Everything about it was amazing. It was a perfect venue, the acoustics were great. Dylan was in fine form. His voice sounded wonderful (craggy sublime in the best sense) and his band was off the charts. Very tight. An unforgettable experience to see this legend.
