Dylan back at Winstar in Oklahoma

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 8:50 pm

Don’t try to get in touch with me next weekend—-I’m making the 6 1/2 hour drive each way to Winstar Casino in Southern Oklahoma (third row seats), where Bob Dylan is back again for a second year straight. I made the decision to get tickets about 4 weeks ago, which was before I knew that he’d be making a big change in the setlist and while he was still a longshot for the Nobel Prize. Yes, we just saw him in San Antonio a year or so ago, but with all the Dylan shows I listen to from online and from CDR trading, I’d be a fool to NOT go see the man in person again (this will be my 7th or 8th Dylan show). The concert is on a weekend, so it won’t get in the way of my job (he’s also playing Baton Rouge, which is about the same distance away, but that’s a weeknight, and seeing Dylan is not considered a legit excuse to get off work….)—-an added bonus is that I’ll get to see the Monet: The Early Years exhibit at the Kimball in Fort Worth on the way back from Winstar. We were very much wanting to see Monet, but couldn’t justify driving up to D-FW just for that. Now I’m already up there….

Songs from the recent albums (which he’ll be doing live in the new setlist) such as Early Roman Kings, Pay In Blood, Soon After Midnight, and Long And Wasted Years rank with Dylan’s best and deepest ever (and if you really want to know what Dylan thinks about life and society today, it’s all there in those songs!), and he’s closing with the song (not written by him, but one of the Great American Songbook selections) “Why Try To Change Me Now”….which could also be MY theme song.

If Dylan is in your area, experience him and his wonderful band, featuring that great Texan Charlie Sexton…but listen to TEMPEST ten times first and also get the lyrics online for the songs in the present setlist. You’ll get a lot more out of the show…
