Review by Bjzh

#1 RDW #12 & 35 to open, gotta love that, everybody must get stoned, nice 
exception from Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat which is opening most shows lately
#2 It's All Over Now Baby Blue-oldie and goodie
#3 Stuck Inside of Mobile-awesome song, love the "I'm Not There" movie version, 
old Dylan version
#4 Love Sick-spectacular!
#5 The Levee's Gonna Break-some seriously rockin' guitar and jam
#6 Desolation Row-nice long song filled with great lyrics which were easy to make 
out compared to other shows
#7 Cold Irons Bound pretty rockin'
#8 Man in the Long Black Coat-don't hear this one often
#9 Summer Days-always rockin' especially tonight
#10-Tangled Up in Blue-our favorite tonight though several highlights/good and 
different arrangements of many older songs
#11-Highway 61-like the band's ability to rock, play the blues, mix it up
#12-Workingman's Blues #2-a snooze, not my favorite song but like the lyrics
#13-Thunder on the Mountain-lots of dancing in the seats to this one
#14-Ballad of a Thin Man-gives you chills every time you hear it, lots of singing along 
not in an irritating way-great closer for the main set
#15-Jolene rocked the encore, still hearing that guitar lick, Bob sings it well, bluesy 
great newer song
#16-Like a Rolling Stone-classic and fan favorite, lights coming on over the crowd during 
"How Does it Feel" and we all felt like Bob was looking at us or at least speaking to 
us-Rolling Stone #1 Rock 'n Roll song of all time

NKU nice smaller venue, great seats 5th row left side facing the stage, looking right at 
Dylan and the band.  Loved the intro played at most concerts…"Ladies and gentlemen 
please welcome the poet laureate of rock 'n' roll. The voice of the promise of the 60s 
counterculture. The guy who forced folk into bed with rock. Who donned makeup in 
the 70s and disappeared into a haze of substance abuse. Who emerged to find Jesus. 
Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s, and who suddenly shifted 
gears releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s. 
Ladies and gentlemen - Columbia recording artist Bob Dylan!"

Spotted the Academy Award statue for "Things Have Changed" from the movie 
Wonder Boys-sitting to the right of Bob.  Loved the video shots of Bob and Charlie 
Sexton  on guitar head-on in color, and black and white from above the stage-Bob's 
wide brimmed hat was cool, black suit with gold and sequin sparkly piping on the legs.
Ushers were a little too gung ho on trying to confiscate cameras, shining flashlights 
on people's faces like they were going to catch us…please, disruptive.

Otherwise the perfect night for us to see Dylan for the twelfth and second time.  
Happy Birthday Ricky!  May You Stay Forever Young Bob & the tour Never Ending!
