You can read a long review of the show here, in which Dylan fan Johnny Borgan writes, “The sound is perfect & crispy clear after some adjustments through ‘Watching The River Flow’, we can hear Dylan whisper ‘I Contain Multitudes’ in our ears, and his barking as sharp gunshots in ‘False Prophet’, the new arrangement fits like a glove!

Meanwhile, on Expecting Rain, GuillemTM wrote, “Bob seemed in great mood. It took him a couole of songs to get into it but My Own Version Of You was terrific. So it was Black Rider, I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight and Gotta Serve Somebody. All Rough And Rowdy Ways songs sounded great, and different from the album.” Also on Expecting Rain, Bobsmurf described the show as “an incredible overwhelming experience… Highlights for me, Gotta Serve Somebody, I’ll be your baby tonight, that harp solo really got me, I contain multitudes ending with one of many incredible centre stage ‘bows’.”

Dylan’s next show is on Wednesday, October 12 at the Grand Rex, Paris, France. He reaches the UK on October 19, for a 12-date tour that includes four nights at the London Palladium. This will be Bob’s first UK tour for five years.
