Anyone who thinks Dylan was anything but great last night, November 24, 2018, at Beacon Theater just really doesn't know Dylan at all. Dylan is a diva and does whatever he wants, whenever he wants. That chutzpah is what makes him the great Bob Dylan, however he changes his tunes. He has the same great voice, which cannot be said of many 77-year-olds, and the same musical and poetic genius. It was a slightly different Dylan but a great show. My only disappointment is that he didn't say even a single word to his audience.

Sounded best in the three times i’ve Seen him since late 60’s. If you expected the Dylan of old and no change, get with it people. Band was great. Dylan on piano and harmonica great. Gonna take this to my grave. Thank you Bob Dylan!

The 11/23/18 show was amazing. Dylan's voice sounded better than I've heard him in a couple of years and he connected strongly with the audience. The band was great as usual. Dylan played good keyboards and lots of harp! The lyrical changes were emotional and thought-provoking. I think the lyrical "updates" to "When I Paint My Masterpiece" make more sense if you know the original words. Then the metrically more complex "rhapsody" line literally rhapsodizes into the direct-to-the-heart "beautiful" phrase, continuing ongoing Dylan themes of creating beauty and also reaching for an exalted state. So for me, that particular new line works best as an addition to the old, with the assumption that the audience knows the original. Overall, this was a rock show not a poetry reading, despite the poetry. My husband and I were extremely moved emotionally. The songs took on new meanings in this time. I cried during some of the songs. We were both amazed and thrilled to have experienced that night.

Attended the Friday, November 30, 2018 show at the Beacon and was blown away. My first time seeing Bob in 40 years (Fall '78 at Madison Square Garden)...shame on me, but I still had kept up with Bob's artistic journey through the years. I had listened to some of the bootlegs of recent shows (Springfield, MA, Waterbury, CT, and the preceding Beacon shows) and really liked what I was hearing, especially Bob's voice, the new arrangements of some of his standards, his harmonica work and, of course, his fantastic band. As a result, my excitement kept building in the days leading up to the show. Every expectation was met and exceeded...Bob and the cowboys were magnificent. Loved every minute and wished the show would have gone on for another two hours. Was a date night with the wife and even though she's not a Dylan fanatic, she enjoyed the show, especially the slow ballads. Thanks, hon...I owe you one.

Finally saw the real and best live Bob Dylan at the Smart Financial center in Sugarland last night. All day I had this good feeling knowing Bob had picked although a very fine venue for live music, a little bit small compared to Coachella in the California desert, or anywhere else this Nobel prize winner could easily fill. The lights went down and then the guys just assumed their places on stage and Bob set up shop behind his full piano and immediately they launched into what would be the tightest and cleanest delivery of Bob Dylan’s music catalog. No hat this time, just a full head of his trademark hair and at age 77, it made me wish for some. Now you normally hear people complain they can’t understand him, but tonight he was as crisp and as clear as you could hope for. I will try and come back with the setlist later and break it down, but for me the holiest Of holy is “ Like A Rolling Stone”. Bob did retool it but in a superior sound and emotionally. Best version in years.

I’ve seen the man often since 70’s - to compare him to any period is pointless. The poet performed exceptionally well at the Met Philly. Old met new - it was a sweet show - strong clear voice - band runs like a well oiled machine - 3rd Show In last 3 years - better than last 2. I will note it helps to always be in first 5 rows - I’ve been fortunate to secure those seats last few shows. He’s always great in smaller venues but they are rare these days ( stopped that 2000) but once in awhile he’ll do one. It’s Dylan - only one - never another whose mind / words still evoke change and demand the listener tune in turn on - or drop out! Ty Zimmermann for a fantastic show!

4.0 star rating Dave from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Bob is still an excellent performer. If you was expecting the harmonica, guitar playing version you were disappointed. His voice is excellent these days and he still has his quirks that lets you know he is still Bob Dylan.
