BOB DYLAN Fall 2019 Tour

Well, those discussions about how we’ll all get along without Dylan’s Never Ending Tour were a bit premature….the announcement for the Fall 2019 shows was just a bit late.

The good news is that Dylan is playing all over the US….just not in Texas/Oklahoma/Louisiana, unfortunately…. however, he is playing many venues he hasn’t played in a few years, so many of you will get a chance to see this fine band and its inimitable frontman, skipping reels of rhyme.

I’ve been very impressed with the recordings of the Spring/early Summer 2019 Europe shows I’ve heard (maybe 12 of them so far). The new arrangements of some of the material bring a fresh perspective to the songs, and Dylan certainly is passionate in his delivery of the songs. He still cares about breathing new life into his songs on a nightly basis, re-shaping the lines (sometimes changing the lyrics), re-sculpting the performance with the sultry bed-of-sound provided by Tony Garnier, George Recile, Donnie Herron, and Austin’s own Charlie Sexton (whom I used to see, often with his brother, leaning against or seated at the Continental Club bar back in the 1990’s).

These are special and emotion-filled performances (yes, not every night brings the A-game, but that’s true of any worker….I’m not on my own A-game on this Monday morning); however (and most Dylan fans already know this), before you pay $75 or $100 for a ticket, you should check out the setlists for the shows the week before you go, and then bone up on the lyrics to the songs. You’ll get a lot more out of the show if you know the words to, say, WHEN I PAINT MY MASTERPIECE, or PAY IN BLOOD, or SCARLET TOWN, or SIMPLE TWIST OF FATE, or EARLY ROMAN KINGS, or THUNDER ON THE MOUNTAIN.
