After opening the tour in Oslo with a stripped-back version of “When I Paint My Masterpiece“, Dylan has since reverted to the full full-band version. However, posters on Expecting Rain have noted a new arrangement for “False Prophet“, which Dylan introduced in Sweden. According to poster nanook82 on Expecting Rain, this new version is “kind of slower, but without losing intensity. Really brought the lyrics to the forefront and allowed for more interesting phrasing.”

nanook82 also attending the Copenhagen show, where some drama unfolded during the show. “Someone in the audience fell ill and was carried off on a stretcher during I’ve Made Up My Mind, hope they’re ok! Bob must have noticed since it all happened right in front of him – somehow it seemed to push his singing to new levels on that song.”

Dylan’s next show is on Sunday, October 2 in Flensburg, Germany. 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.
