Review by Mikael Peterson
Time at last for my third review. You can read my previous ones on older
tour guides; Gothenburg 05 10 21 and Brussels 05 11 01.
Took of wednesday from near Gothenburg with a fellow bobcat, driving
(well he was) all the some 400 kilometres to Stockholm in beauthiful
wheather, sunny skies, blistering sun and of course, spirits high.
Made it to the Capitol in good time to collect some setlists at a
hotel, courtesy of Manfred...thanks...
We arrived at the venue in good time, me for quick drinks, and Tomas for
T-shirts...( I think he purchased TEN!!!)
Bob came on more than half an hour late and from get go I knew it was
gonna be good...opening with a fantastic "Cat´s in the well"....well it
was a gorgeous version and a great sound and everything was perfect...I
must´ve died and gone to heaven, he´s actually playing guitar again,
thank you Bob!!!
You´ve seen the setlist i guess, but let me just say that highlights for
me were "deal goes down" " Tangled up in blue" (with some breathtaking
phrasing, I can´t believe he´s actually renewed this one AGAIN!),
"Thunder..." and a nuclear"Watchtower"...but outstanding this time, my
absolute Dylanmoment was "Netty Moore"...WOW! can´t even begin to
describe the beauty of it... Bob´´s voice was the clearest and
strongest throughout the show that I´ve heard since 2000, possibly even
After the show we decided to skip hotels and stuff, and drive back all
the way... Well, so we did and by the time we got to Örebro, Tomas, who
was driving, decided he was getting too tired to continue, so we pulled
over by a Statoil gas station and he made himself comfortable in the
back of our minivan...however, as it turned out, I was snoring too hard
for him to sleep, so he decided to go into the round the clock open
joint for a cup of coffee.
As he entered, the guy at the counter asked; ".-Did you see Dylan?"
"Why, yes, we just got back from the show..." Tomas replied... (guy
pointing out the window)"-Well he´s standing right there!" And there he
was, headin for one of two big black buses, surrounded by at least six
or seven body guards, covered by a hood, of course...and headin´for
As it turned out he was stopping for toothpaste(!!!), well what do you
True story, I was asleep in the car anyway so it took Tomas some time to
convince me that he was´nt joking...
Well see you all in Gothenburg Sunday, looking forward to that, and then
April 8, I´m off to Scotland for a weeks holyday with the April 11
Glasgowgig as highlight...If you´re going there, or have some other kind
of input, or maybe even are able to accomodate me and my frien after the
show, my E-mail adress is; firstname.lastname@example.org
