As noted above Bob barely plays the "axe" anymore. Used to catch quite a few Dylan shows but after seein a show about 5 years ago where he similarly played only 2 songs on guitar... I've personally boycotted. My loss I'm sure but to me its like going to a show and seeing Jerry only play guitar on one or 2 tunes. While Dylan certainly is not in Jerrys league as a guitarist playing the guitar is a BIG essence of his sound. Perhaps a better analogy would be goin to see Paul Simon and all he did was play the organ/piano.... the guitar playing is a BIG part of his "sound". Certainly LOL its not Bobs tremendous singing voice that carries his shows.......( or as my ex used to say "I just want to see him one time without the marbles in his mouth"

Saw Bob last night in cincy. This was about the fifth time I had seen since 90, so I am far from an "innie" but far from a "noob", as well. That being said, I thought the show was excellent. This was the most animated I have seen him, smiles and high energy all around. Band super tight and rocking. Classic Dylan "vocalization", but I could actually understand almost everything he sang. He played grand piano and keys throughout, and on some songs just the harp, which was great. Similar setlist as he as been playing all tour, although we did get a Baby Blue in the second slot. Really liked the Visions and Watchtower closer. He is still the man.
Leon Russell opened. Not much to say on him. Pretty good I guess. Did you cover of Jumpin Jack flash which got me out of my seat for a bit.
Right now, I can't read too well...
