You can read a long review of the show here, in which Dylan fan Johnny Borgan compares the October 12 show with the previous night’s performance. “In my opinion ‘Watching The River Flow’ was always the weakest spot in this set, excused by the warm-up effect, but when Dylan attacks the song tonight, after playing some chords of ‘Oh Susannah’ before it evolves into the song, something happens and I have to look up and listen, he is on fire, breathes new life in the song and sings kind of harmony to his unsung melody line, and it’s just great. What a start & the first change from last night.”

Borgan also notes that, “No harmonica tonight – maybe the powerful singer after all has to save some energy, voice and breath through the night, or some nights? The piano works well, the almost percussive effect Dylan love is used to the fullest, and that’s the driving force behind the dynamics of a band always attentive and focused on the pianist’s small nods and signs. A really great and long piano solo on ‘To Be Alone With You’.”

Dylan’s next show is on Thursday, October 13 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.
