My first time to see Bob Dylan. The venue is lovely. Good restaurants nearby. I was disappointed Bob Dylan did not play Knocking On Heavens Door. The arrangements of his songs were greatly different from the originals, so hard to recognize. Still a wonderful show seeing a rock legend.

Sounded best in the three times i’ve Seen him since late 60’s. If you expected the Dylan of old and no change, get with it people. Band was great. Dylan on piano and harmonica great. Gonna take this to my grave. Thank you Bob Dylan!

Bob is still an excellent performer. If you was expecting the harmonica, guitar playing version you were disappointed. His voice is excellent these days and he still has his quirks that lets you know he is still Bob Dylan.

Better than we were expecting. His voice was pretty good, after warming up after a few songs. If you took this at concert value, taking away how this man has inspired the US music scene over decades, it was OK. Definitely not the best concert I've ever been to this year, but somehow, that isn't the reason for attending a Dylan concert. It's more about appreciating his legend. I won't ever go to another of his concerts, this was enough. Parts of the concert were weirdly like Bob Dylan doing karaoke trying to impersonate Bob Dylan. It was entertaining in a weird way. Bob really shone through in his up-beat rock and roll style songs, those were the peak and when his voice sounded most powerful. If you've always wanted to see Dylan, go see him on this tour. If you haven't, absolutely don't go.

GREAT EVENING IN THE BEND WITH BOB DYLAN
Enjoyed ever minute of the show, great mix of songs, tight band! So glad i went. The creativity of the american legend/poet still inspires me, thanks Bob Dylan!

Oakdale should do a better job of monitoring alcohol consumption and seating latecomers, so as not to interrupt the enjoyment of those who arrived on time and were respectful of the performance. Good to see and listen to Nobel-Prize winner Bob Dylan, but it would have been nice if he had a few lines of interaction with the audience. Maybe he didn't like the crowed, either.

NOT A REAL DYLAN FAN
I am not a true Bob Dylan fan but I have known his music. I went to the concert with a real Bob Dylan fan. I myself enjoyed the experience of seeing a music legend. I am not a true "fan" as mentioned so I did have some disappointing moments and that was I wasn't able to see him as there were no live screens. I would have loved to see him up closer. I did read that someone who had closer seats had to deal with some people who were disrespectful. I would have and should have paid the extra money to be closer to the stage. There are really no issues with any of the other aspects of the concert. I need to mention that the real "fan" said that Dylan is typically not a show person, I respected Dylan for who he is. This was a nice lesson in appreciation of the art of music for me.
