Bob Dylan Show
Sam and I went to see Dylan last night in SF. It was fun having him along with me. It's somewhat of a tradition since my father took me to see him when I was about 12 - my first real concert.
Dylan was great, as usual. He is traveling with an outstanding band. Here's the setlist:
1. Maggie's Farm
2. She Belongs To Me
3. Lonesome Day Blues
4. Simple Twist Of Fate
5. Rollin' And Tumblin'
6. Boots Of Spanish Leather
7. 'Til I Fell In Love With You
8. I Shall Be Released
9. Highway 61 Revisited
10. John Brown
11. Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)
12. Workingman's Blues #2
13. Summer Days
14. Thunder On The Mountain
15. Like A Rolling Stone
16. All Along The Watchtower
I've seen Bob a few times over the last year. Each show is different. My friend Steve and I saw him twice together, once at the HP Pavillian in San Jose and once at the Paramount in Oakland. Both were outstanding. Melissa and I saw him at the Greek Theatre in Bereley and once in Reno. For me the show at the Greek and in San Jose were the best. Last night was great - but made better because Samuel was with me.
Best songs last night were Simple Twist of Fate, I Shall Be Released, Summer Days and the encore set.
Go see Dylan if you have the chance... Even as an older man he is still vibrent and relevant. He's been able to adjust his sound as his voice changes.
