Madrid, Spain

Barclaycard Center (Palacio de Deportes)

July 6, 2015

[Ricardo Danko]

Review by Ricardo Danko

Although rarely have crossed in his road “Los Lobos”, they met
yesterday as support for a fun time to remember who gave to "*La Bamba*"
before they leave at 21:30 Bob Dylan on stage with gray frock-coat and
brimmed hat. Dylan blows (such) harmonica, plays (as he can) the piano,
scratch (just -yesterday, nothing-) Guitar, and keeps that deep voice, and
increasingly, that continues to shoot words-phrases-stanzas like an
unstoppable torrent inimitable in almost all his songs. What memory, hey
man… 74 years!

A show too sober and well lit for an ugly place, that old Palacio de los
Deportes in Madrid that still be a place to listen to music, which is
difficult to appreciate nuances and quality and offering great band
accompanying Dylan and for over a decade in the next calling since 1988
"The neverending tour". And a pleasure to see on stage these neat
“cowboys” playing with great delicacy and precision revisited
emblematic songs like "*Things Have Changed*", "*She Belongs To Me*,"
"*Tangled Up In Blue*," "*Simple Twist of Fate*"; reviewing Sinatra in
"*Full Moon And Empty Arms*" and "*Autumn Leaves*"; bathing in the swamps
of jazz-blues with "*Early Roman Kings*", "*Duquesne Whistle*", "*Beyond
Here Lies Nothing*", "*High Water (For Charley Patton)*", "*Spirit On The
Water*"; and caressing notes in "*Soon After Midnight*", "*Forgetful
Heart*" or "*Love Sick*", which closed the evening two hours after start
(break included), preceded the first encore: "*Blowin 'In The Wind*"
(which, precisely from a July 6, 1962 in which it was recorded for the
first time, is reminding us how many times must whistling bombs before
forever banned The answer is in the wind ...); just before the track seats
were empty because the crowd wanted *dylanitas*-*fans *standing in the
front row, watching closely The Teacher. With over 50 albums behind
officers around the world you want to ask the favorites; he, oblivious to
requests, the program repeats every night in each city, following only his
magical screenplay. It Ain’t Me, Babe… is Bob.
